About this Section


As Special Olympics Coaches, Volunteers & Staff we pledge to:

  • Ensure that the equipment and facilities are safe to use.
  • Ensure that the equipment, rules, training and the environment are appropriate for the age and ability of the athletes.
  • Review each athlete’s medical and profile forms and be aware of any limitations on that athlete’s participation noted on that form. I will keep all information on the medical and profile forms confidential unless medical attention is necessary.
  • Provide for the general welfare, health, and safety of any athlete(s) in my charge during the course of my assigned duties.
  • Report any emergencies to the appropriate authorities after first taking immediate action to ensure the health and safety of the participant. I will complete an Accident/Incident Report Form for all accidents or injuries.
  • Encourage athletes to seek medical advice when required.
  • Allow further participation in training and competition only when appropriate.
  • Maintain the same interest and support towards sick and injured athletes.
  • Ensure that prescribed medications are taken at the proper times.
