The Healthy Athletes program is dedicated to providing health services and education to Special Olympics athletes, and changing the way health systems interact with people with intellectual disabilities.

Non-Clinical Volunteer Roles (no medical background required):

 

Athlete Check in/Out

At the check-in station you will be registering athletes for the screening which consists of getting their name and birthdate, ensuring they have their consent on file, and placing their label on the HAS form. If the athlete does not have a consent, they can sign one at the table (if they are their own guardian) and they will need to fill out the top portion of the HAS form. Then lead the athlete to the waiting area where the next available volunteer will take them to the next station. At Check Out Station volunteers will hand out goody bags and also data enter results in computer.  

 

Clinician Assistant - Volunteers will assist the clinicians during the Opening Eyes screening with helping conduct the screening, filling out screening paperwork, organizing forms, directing and escorting athletes to the stations, and any other help that is needed.

  • This event is held indoors at the Anderson Student Center.
