Become a Coach

If you are able to commit some time as an assistant coach or play alongside an athlete as a Unified Partner®, we can use your help! Special Olympics volunteers include students, retirees, professionals and families. You don't need coaching experience or specific training working with persons with intellectual disabilities. We have great staff, mentor coaches and coaches training to get you going. If you are at least 14 years old and have a love of sports, time to commit and a willingness to make a difference, you can help us change lives.

How you help Special Olympics Nevada would not exist today and could not have been created without the time, energy, and dedication of thousands of volunteers. The people who get involved in Special Olympics come from all walks of life. Whether you are part of our Law Enforcement community raising thousands of dollars for us, a super jock who wants to share your expertise, a civic minded organization looking to donate a few hours, we welcome your support.
About us We pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of services to our athletes. Our sports training and competition opportunities provide athletes of all ability levels the chance to play and be part of a team. Skills like being a good teammate, winning with grace, and encouraging others are all skills that carry over into their every day lives. We're in our schools! Through sports, we are bringing special education students and general education students on the same playing field, promoting acceptance and respect for all.
