Volunteer Eligibility Lists

The lists below contain Special Olympics Virginia volunteers and their Class A status as of the date the list was pulled. Please note that in order to attend local, regional or state level competitions, all coaches, chaperones and partners should be Class A eligible (click here to read Special Olympics Virginia's Volunteer Eligibility Policy for any questions on what makes a volunteer eligible). Additionally, in order to be listed as the Head Coach, the volunteer must complete the Concussion Awareness Training as required by our insurance carrier. All teams must have one volunteer who is listed as the Head Coach and all individual sports must have one person who is listed as the Head Coach.

Any person who is in a position of authority over an athlete should be a Class A Volunteer and for the safety of our athletes should not be allowed to volunteer until all Class A requirements are met. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, coaches, chaperones, partners, HODs, etc.

Volunteer Status Types

Class A Eligible Coach: Volunteer has completed their Class A application, background check, Protective Behaviors Training, and Concussion Training and is fully eligible to volunteer in any position.

Class A Eligible Non-Coach: Volunteer has completed their Class A application, background check, and Protective Behaviors Training, and is fully eligible to volunteer but may not coach.
