Lucas County Special Olympics Volunteers

Little Lightning Team with coaches
Little Lightning Basketball Team 2024


Lucas County Special Olympics (LCSO) also seeks adults to serve as coaches and practice assistants.

To work directly with the athletes, all volunteers and unified partners must complete an application, which includes a background check and a few simple, free online classes. Please note that the application and background check are also provided at no cost to you.  Once you have completed all of these courses, you will have reached the Sports Assistant level, which is required of all coaches/volunteers. The application and classes are valid for three years once completed.
