leadership training

Special Olympics carry out leadership training for athletes

The three days training is aimed to encourage athletes to be leaders so they can represent themselves well on the SOPNG Board.

SOPNG also aims to establish an athlete council so this training is vital to prepare the participants for that.

SOPNG has invited an expert from Special Olympics Australia to train the athletes and their mentors.

SOPNG president Takale Tuna said they are pushing for the athletes to be leaders.
