We are looking to start up some Tennis clinics in Allegheny County over the summer, and volunteers are needed to make that happen! Tennis would be a new Special Olympics sport for Allegheny, and these clinics will help us gauge the interest of athletes. As a volunteer, you would help support and guide Special Olympics athletes in developing sports skills.

We are still determining the best day of the week and time for practice, but it would be one day a week for 1-2 hours, running from late June until August.

If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know at volunteer@specialolympicspa.org!
