Whether it's up front interacting with the athletes or working behind the scenes, volunteers are an integral part of the success of Special Olympics. The Barrie community is no different. Whether it be Head Coaches or the support volunteers that work closely with them, members of the council, helping out at our Bingo fundraiser, pitching in at events, driving athletes to where they need to go at any given time, volunteers are very much valued and appreciated for all that they do. We couldn't do it without you. The athletes gain skills, training, enjoyment from their sports, and self-confidence with your help.

If you are considering becoming a volunteer, contact the local community co-ordinator, a head coach, a volunteer or through Special Olympics Ontario and we'll let you know what we need to get you started. Usually an application and a police check is all we will need.
