called to serve

"Let me win, but if I cannot win let me be brave in the attempt"

I am looking for more coaches for special olympics. We have about 60 athletes on our roster. This is a volunteer job that consists of one hour a week throughout most of the year. At competition times, it may require a half to full day of service.

We are looking for coaches who are willing to help year round with all events: bowling, track and field, swimming and possibly kickball. We are also looking for people who specialize in one area. I thought that possibly young women could use this as a personal progress goal and volunteer their time. Most likely swimming in the summer would be the best option for the young women.

If you desire to help, or know someone you think is interested, please contact me in one of the following ways

cell: 801-404-9657
leave a comment on my blog or facebook.

if you are interested and feel you are not qualified just remind yourself that I am in charge so what qualifications could you possibly need. Except the desire to serve and love for those you are serving.

Thanks for your time,
Stephanie Huff
Head of Delegations for the Nebo Athletes

I'll make sure to tell my Young Women about it! :)

This is a great and fun way to do a value project for YW. When we helped out with bowling for achievement days some of the girls still talk about it and that was a couple of years ago.
I'd love to help coach when the wee ones are a bit bigger. Surely you'll still be coaching by then?
