Use a post like this after a sport season to call out and thank the volunteers who helped your team. Post a photo of the team and volunteers and say:
Thank you to these amazing volunteers! We just finished our [SPORT] season for Special Olympics and it would have been possible with each of these people: [list your coaching staff or tag them in a photo]. They’re making a real impact in their community and we’re so lucky to have them on our team!

The highlight of my week is practicing with my Special Olympics team. We’re creating a culture that celebrates the fact that we are all more alike than we are different. Want to join our team? Ask me about all the different ways you can get involved!
Getting involved with Special Olympics has been a life-changing experience, both for me and the athletes I mentor. We’re always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our team. Ask me about how you can join our team as a coach or volunteer!
