Become a Coach with Wild West
Coaches are certified by Special Olympics Minnesota and train athletes in a variety of sports. Each sport season is approximately eight weeks long and athletes typically train for one-two hours per week during the course of each season. We are adding new athletes to the program everyday, and as we continue to grow, we need additional coaches. Please contact us at wildwestsomn@gmail.com if you're interested in helping our team.
