Introduction To Athlete Leadership
In Special Olympics Athlete Leadership, we partner with athlete leaders to educate people about the abilities of our athletes, provide leadership and skill training for athletes to be successful and
support them in leadership roles inside and outside the movement.
This course is an overview of what it means to be an athlete leader. It serves as a guide to help athletes make decision about their future roles and training in athlete leadership using interactive exercises. This course should be taken prior to any other courses.
