Coaches during orientation
On the 23-27 October 2013 a coaches training event was held at Learamele Special School. The passionate coaches were equipped with the necessary skills on how to train athletes with intellectual disability in athletics track and field and softball throw. They also learnt how to do divisioning and were orientated on Special Olympics.
One of the coaches that attended the training, Onkabeste Mmudi said that she wants to make sure that people living with intellectual disabilities take part in every Olympic sport irrespective of their mental condition. “It’s so nice to know how important you are in the world and I want to help the marginalized feel special. With more training we can build great teams.”
