Coaching at Major Games
Athletes proceed through the competition structure with the direct support of sport program coaches. Whether it is the District Team participating in Provincial Games, Team Ontario traveling to National Games, or Team Canada traveling to World Games, the teams are structured in an approximately 3:1 athlete to coach ratio.
Volunteers fill a number of roles at the community, district, conference, provincial and even national level:

Volunteers are key to ensuring that District and Provincial Teams have a successful Games experience. The District Team Manager and Provincial Team Liaison are crucial links between Special Olympics Ontario staff and the Games Organizing Committee, and the athletes and coaches on the Team.
