Special Olympics Manukau Swim Coach
Ideally our volunteer will have a passion for working with people with intellectual disabilities and seeing the athletes achieve in and outside the swimming pool. Be committed to attending weekly trainings and attend ribbon day's events held once a month. Some travel outside Auckland will be required so having your own transport to and from events will be useful.
All applicants must be police vetted. This is supported by Helen Ferguson the central Special Olympics regional sports coordinator.
Swimming trainings are to start after the school holidays. Held at Papatoetoe swimming pool once a week Tuesday 5pm-6pm. There will be ribbon day events held once every month that the Special Olympics Manukau club would love you to attend. These are held mostly on a Saturday or perhaps a Sunday at 9am-4pm. Seeing the athletes is train is one small part of the role. However, watching their faces lite up when they compete on a ribbon day against their friends from other clubs is not to be missed.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
