Coach Laura Woodall

2020 Special Olympics Ontario Coach of the Year!

In 1993, Laura Woodall was introduced to Special Olympics programs through her work with the Quinte Blades speed skating programs, and has played an integral role in the club ever since.

Her proudest accomplishment has been championing and advocating for athletes and their opportunities, especially as a meet organizer. In her time with Special Olympics, she has especially enjoyed the people, the energy, the positivity, the environment, the camaraderie, the collaboration, the laughs, the sportsmanship, the friendships, the fun, the Provincial and National Games experiences, and the dances!  “And best of all, I get to be me!”

In honour of National Coaches Week, we send our gratitude and thanks to coach Laura Woodall. Thanks to YOU, Special Olympics athletes are able to achieve their goals in both competition and in life.

Join us on Thursday, October 8th to celebrate the achievement of our 2020 Award Winners! We will be celebrating virtually and will share more information on and Special Olympics Ontario Facebook Page.
