We need volunteers who are qualified to officiate sporting events to help at our competitions. All sports in Special Olympics require judges or officials for fair and equal competition. We offer training sessions for groups and individuals who are not certified officials but are interested in officiating Special Olympics events. Contact your local Special Olympics leadership to get involved, or if you are interested in assisting one of our State Games, contact Bryan Schubring, Director of Sports & Competition, at [email protected].

Time commitment: 2-8 hours per event plus one-hour training, if needed
