Without volunteers, Special Olympics Nevada couldn't exist! We rely on our amazing group of volunteers to lead practices and teams as coaches, assist with competitions and fundraising events, compete alongside athletes as Unified partners, and a variety of other meaningful roles. This support helps keep programs 100% free of charge for athletes and their families!

A Coach's Testimonial

"Coaching for Special Olympics Nevada is the single most rewarding and uplifting part of my free time. Our athletes inspire me and encourage me to be the very best version of myself. Special Olympics celebrates the unique and exceptional capabilities of every athlete, regardless of their disability. At Special Olympics Nevada, every athlete has a place and every athlete has the heart of a champion. “
