Athlete Leadership Program (ALPs) Registration Form 2017-2018

Special Olympics Ontario provides Athlete Leadership Programs (ALPs), which equip athletes with the tools to undertake positions of leadership within their community and the broader movement. This allows athletes to explore opportunities beyond sports training and competition. These leadership roles can include public speaking, as an athlete health advocate, being a team captain as well as preparing them for positions as Board and Committee Members.

These roles give athletes a voice in shaping the Special Olympics movement, and a chance to spread the word about the transformations Special Olympics can bring to individuals and families. Athlete Leadership also provides a way for athletes to showcase and utilize their talents, interests and expertise.

There are a number of courses designed for ALPs – these courses have been created based upon their relevance to the ALPs mandate, ease of instruction and, of course, athlete interest. A sample of some of the courses offered in the 2017/2018 season include: speakers training, healthy lifestyles, leadership, and social media.
