Special Olympics West Virginia (SOWV) announces, the 2017 Summer Games scheduled for JUNE 2-4, to be held in Charleston. Approximately 600 volunteers are needed to continue to make this event the largest and most successful Special Olympics event in West Virginia. Athletes from around the state will be competing in a variety of sporting events such as Track & Field, Aquatics, Baggo, Bocce, Tennis, and Golf. Volunteers will be needed to help run sporting events, registration tables, and more. We hope your schedule will allow you to join us and serve as a volunteer. Please indicate your desire to volunteer by completing a Volunteer Schedule and Application.
A policy is mandated by Special Olympics International (SOI) and SOWV that requires all volunteers to complete an application with an attached copy of a photo ID. You will also be asked to show a form of identification at the event registration table. If you are a minor, you must have your parent or guardian sign the second page of the application and fill out the Event Volunteer Release Form. I assure you all application information is kept confidential. Information on your application may be used in case you are involved in an emergency while at a Special Olympics West Virginia event.
We look forward to working with you to provide a memorable experience for you and the Special Olympics West Virginia Athletes.
