27 people are interested
If you are looking for a fun, active rewarding experience while volunteering, we are the group for you. Since 1976 we have been providing gymnastics to athletes with Special Needs.- Volunteers meet at Mini-Hops Gymnastics on Saturdays from 12:45-2:45pm for regular scheduled practices. Volunteers assist in the training of the athletes in teaching both the artistic and Rhythmic gymnastics routines to our special needs athletes. There are two competitions; an area meet and the culminating MN Special Olympic State Games. Athletes range from 6 - 45 years old and varying abilities. Volunteers will assist trained gymnastics coaches during the practices. Volunteers need to be capable of physically assisting athletes and give verbal instructions. Gymnastics experience is not necessary, but very helpful. Experience working with people with intellectual disabilities iis very helpful, but not necessary.
Training is available for volunteer coaches in the area of gymnastics as well as through MN Special Olympics organization.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
