We are looking for positive, responsible and outgoing individuals to work together with other coaches and staff to assist guide youth and adults with developmental disabilities in a coaching or assistant coaching capacity. We focus on making it a FUN experience for all involved! Previous experience working with this population is certainly a positive, but we also accept volunteers who may not have previously worked with individuals with disabilities but are eager for the experience and looking to make a positive impact.

Coaches/Helpers will oversee a specific track & field event, coaching and guiding athletes as they train. Some examples of events include: short distance sprinting, long distance running, TurboJav (similar to javelin throw), softball throw, shotput, long jump, etc. Coaches may work with a small group of athletes or a larger group, recording running times, throwing distances or jumping distances for athletes. Experience as a track athlete or coaching is a plus, but not required as the events are not too difficult to implement.
