Special Olympics Montgomery County,                                        Pennsylvania

 An all-volunteer organization where athletes are first!


Are you a volunteer/coach? Everyone has to be up to date with required training. If you are not sure if you are current send a note to specialolympicsmontco@verizon.net. Here are the links to the three courses:

Protective Behaviors: http://www.specialolympics.org/protective_behaviors.aspx

General Orientation: http://www.specialolympicspa.org/ways-to-help/volunteer/general-orientation


We will continue to ask that all State Games coaches complete before attending Games and will continue to offer onsite Coaches Concussion Training at all State Games throughout 2015. Regardless of attending a State Games or not, all coaches/volunteers are required to complete this year. If not completed, they are ineligible to coach in 2016.

Concussion Training (take one of the two options):

·           National Federation of State High School Associations Concussion in Sports training course which is available at https://nfhslearn.com/courses/61037

·           The Centre for Disease Control’s Heads-Up Concussion in Youth Sports training course, which is available at http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/online_training.html

Please remember when the volunteer/coach takes the Concussion Training Course, a copy of the completion certificate with their name in it, must be submitted to sportstraining@specialolympicspa.org or jtresp@specialolympicspa.org.
