Coaches Corner

Coaches are the backbone to SOSC. They are on the playing field, building confidence and inclusion through the joy of sports. This page is here to provide you with resources, information, and guidance for all things coach related.

We are guided by the Codes of Conduct for all coaches, volunteers, athletes, and spectators. Please be sure to review these carefully for the safety of athletes, yourselves, and for the integrity of sport. We are stronger when we work as one team promoting inclusion and joy. These codes set the tone of respect, quality of sport, and responsibility. It’s on us to lead by example.

Thank you!

For information on how to become a coach for SOSC, please visit the the inside sports volunteer page.

Coaches Resources

Our Codes of Conduct include our guiding principles of respect, quality of sport, and responsibility.

We hold our coaches to the highest regard as they set the tone and experience for our athletes. Please review often and abide by them so we can promote inclusion through the joy of sport. Any behaviors acting outside of the Code of Conduct will result in possible probation, suspension, or expulsion. If you have any concerns or questions about conduct, please reach out to your regional SOSC Sports Manager.

Rules and information on each SOSC sport is below.

Please reference these when preparing for practice and competition. Our competitions and championships all abide by these rules.

SOSC collaborates with Special Olympics North America and Special Olympics International to devise policies and best practices to support our athletes.

Coaches are required to renew their volunteer status and sports certification every 3 years.

If you are unsure when your certification expires, please email volunteer@sosc.org for more information.
