To serve our athletes to the best of our abilities, Special Olympics Colorado is divided into five geographic areas to provide service throughout Colorado. Each geographic area has its own full-time staff member (Area Manager) serving as the liaison to athletes, coaches, families and constituents in that area. The Area Manager helps recruit coaches, organize practices, put on fundraisers and local events, and oversee all athletes and volunteers in their area of the state. Each area is divided by county. In order to locate the appropriate Area Manager, simply look for your county in the list below. Please contact your Area Manager for more information regarding local events, getting your athlete registered, coaching needs or local sponsorship opportunities.
