Special Olympics offers six sports

Special Olympics Homer is now offering six sports: bowling, swimming, basketball, golf, snowshoeing and skiing. This means we need places to practice and hold our local games. There are several schools and businesses that have generously allowed us the use of their facilities.

For our swim team, we would like to thank The Bay Club and Bridget at Kate Kuhns Aquatic Center. For our basketball team, we would like to thank McNeil Canyon School, Christian Community Church and Homer High School. For our golf team, we would like to thank Fireweed Meadows. For our bowling team, we would like to thank Mark at Kachemak Bowl.

And, for all the volunteers who help us coach, organize, fund raise and transport our athletes, we give a big thank you.

If you are interested in coaching or volunteering with Special Olympics call Carol Shuler at 235-7805 ext. 332 or 299-1606.
