Special Olympics

Special Olympics Golf Coach is a training program designed by the PGA of Canada in conjunction with Special Olympics Canada to address a specific need to develop, deliver, and implement coach education for Special Olympics coaches. The one-day workshop is designed specifically for Special Olympics volunteers interested in gaining the skills and confidence to run their own golf programs.



Here’s what our trained coaches are saying:

As a novice golf coach and golfer, I found the material very informative and easy to understand. I left the course feeling much more comfortable in my role as coach and also very inspired by both Glenn [Canadian PGA facilitator] and the other coaches that attended. Thank you for the opportunity.
- Margie Andrews

Thank you so much for arranging for this workshop to happen. I think we all have come away with a better sense of our abilities and with some great tools to accomplish our training goals.
- Carla Dumaresq

A prerequisite for the Special Olympics Golf Coach workshop is ‘trained’ status in ‘Special Olympics Competition Sport Coach’ or ‘Special Olympics Community Sport Coach’. More information can be found at www.specialolympics.ca.
