IUS Coaches Resources

Coaches teach the skills and spirit that define a true athlete. Coaches are role models and character-builders. You bring enthusiasm, commitment and a positive attitude to each practice, event and competition. You will enrich the lives of our athletes in many life-changing ways. The skills and confidence an athlete learns through sports have a long and lasting effect. They can help an athlete succeed in school or even find a job.

Special Olympics Maryland IUS coaches go even further—they help young athletes with and without intellectual disabilities find their own strengths and abilities. They also show them how to build upon those strengths and improve every day.
