Become an ATHLETE

Special Olympics Owen Sound is dedicated to providing individuals with intellectual disabilities far more than just the physical benefits of sport.

For many athletes, participating in Special Olympics is a path to healthy living, empowerment, acceptance and friendship. Our programs are provided in a positive and supportive environment and focus on increasing physical fitness, confidence and life-skills of our athletes.

Next to our amazing athletes, our volunteers are one of the integral pieces keeping our Special Olympics community active and thriving. At the community level, every facet of our programs from administration to coaching are run by volunteers. 

As a volunteer you could choose to be involved with the sports programs directly as a Head Coach or Assistant Coach, help with fundraising events, or even be part of our Community Council (see below for more info). We are always actively seeking new volunteers who are energetic and passionate with a desire to help others and build up our community. 


Our volunteers take pride in knowing they're providing athletes with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to experience the excitement, joy and personal fulfillment associated with participating in sport in Owen Sound. Volunteer with us and we can guarantee our athletes will make you smile day after day!
