Special Olympics Texas is getting ready for the 2013 Winter Games running January 30th to February 3rd. The sports highlighted at Winter Games are bowling, powerlifting, table tennis and volleyball.

We would appreciate your help as a day of event volunteer. Additionally, all volunteers are required to be up to date on all Class A volunteer requirements. If you have not done these requirements or if you believe yours have expired please click on the link below. Remember, General Orientation needs to be done only once while Protective Behaviors and the Class A Volunteer Application must be renewed every three years.
Please scan and email all updated Class A forms; or fax to: 512-835-7756

All three requirements can be accessed from the SOTX Volunteer Page

HOUSING INFO We will be staying at the Courtyard by Marriott located at 12330 N IH-35, Austin 78732. Two people will be housed per room as we have done in the past. As for housing requests, the roommate preferences are used when people request each other. When no roommate preferences are listed, we look for other volunteers close to your age group, then your area, then your region, then anyone. It is possible for you to request a room to yourself if you are willing to cover half of your housing costs yourself and there are enough rooms available to accommodate our needs.

 To ensure their attendance, some key volunteers have offered to pay for their own housing expenses within our block to allow more folks to attend Winter Games. Our cost will be roughly $114 per night per room, so the average three night key volunteer cost adds up to $171 if you have a roommate and $342 if you request to room alone. This definitely is not mandatory, but it is certainly welcome if you are interested. To indicate your decision to cover your own housing expenses simply make a note within the comments section of the key volunteer response form regarding your desire to cover your own housing expenses. 

We appreciate your continued involvement of Special Olympics Texas. If you have any questions, about the forms that need to be filled out please feel free to contact Judy Yoshimaru at or 800/876-5646 x 2947.

Thanks so much for being involved,
