Volunteer Registration for
Spring Academies & SOGA Summer Games

We welcome Coaches, Unified Partners, Ball Persons and more to volunteer in our Spring Academies.  Students and adults who play tennis or do not play tennis, who have a passion to help are invited. Training is available for new or returning volunteers on February 23, 2019 from 10:00 a.m - 1:30 p.m. at Wesleyan School Gym. After completing this volunteer form, a link will be available to you to sign up for volunteer training. 

Our volunteers assist at our Spring Academy Sites and also as Unified Partners at events.  Academies meet February through May based on the schedule below. The SPECIAL OLYMPICS SUMMER GAMES are Friday, May 17 - Sunday, May 19, 2019 at Emory University. Unified Partners are paired with athletes to play as their partner in competition.  We typically need 60+ unified partners for this event so your consideration for signing up is greatly appreciated.
