Special Olympics Teams

“Let me win. But if I can not win, Let me be brave in the attempt” 

The mission of the Newport County YMCA Special Olympics Team is to provide year-round sports training and competition for children and adults, giving them opportunities for children and adults, giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship within the Special Olympics community. The Sharks Special Olympics Team is always accepting new volunteers, partners, and athletes.

Volunteer Coaching Opportunities

We’re seeking volunteers interested in coaching youth sports. Our coaches make YMCA youth sports possible and create a lifelong impact on children by encouraging participation and emphasizing sportsmanship and strong character. When you become a volunteer, the Y will introduce you to coaching and provide specific resources to the sport you coach. If your child is a player, getting involved at their practices can help them feel comfortable to practice with you outside of official practice time.
