Special Olympics Hawaii is divided into eight geographic areas which closely follow the Department of Education school districts, and operate year-round Special Olympics programs. Each Area is administered by an Area Director and an Area Management Team. The committees implement the majority of functions of an Area program which include training, games, volunteer management, fundraising, family involvement, athlete outreach, finance and public education.

This team is the driving force behind all of the activities that happen at the area level. This management team consists of the following volunteer positions:

  • Competition : organizes the competitions for the athletes
  • Families : organizes activities for family members of our athletes
  • Finance : takes care of all the financial obligations that an area program faces
  • Fundraising : develops fundraising activities, writes grants, and develops sponsorships to help the area program meet its annual budget
  • Medical : coordinates medical forms that athletes must complete to train and compete. Also helps to set up medical staff at competitions
  • Outreach : recruits new athletes to train and compete in our program
  • Public Relations : develops PSA’s, articles, newsletters and flyers for publication in order to help promote Special Olympics within the Area
  • Training : oversees the training of the athletes and the coaches within the Area program
  • Transportation : coordinates transportation to and from practices and helps to coordinate transportation to competitions, either through air or on island
  • Volunteers : recruits and trains the hundreds of volunteers needed to provide the Special Olympics program in the Area
