Young Athletes Update - February 2020

Special Olympics Pennsylvania is looking to identify Local Programs with strong connections, or is willing to help create any, with libraries in their community as part of a new initiative to create more Young Athletes training sites.

Special Olympics International has given a small number of additional toolkits specific for a library setting, as well as backpacks with equipment and resources for families to continue practicing activities at home between sessions.

All library staff involved will be required to complete the Young Athletes Coaches Training in the online volunteer portal and become a Class A Volunteer if they aren’t one already.
