Members of CSC having been supporting the Special Olympics since 1982 as volunteers. We are Ski Partners and Course Workers for the 300+ Athletes each season. It's a great experience for our Ski Club Members. Once you have done it you will look forward to it every year!
Many of these Athletes have never been on skis before, to teach them in three sessions to negotiate a slalom course and see them win a medal - well you can't imagine what a great feeling that is for the Athlete and everyone involved.
We need volunteers to help both on and off skis. You get a lift ticket if needed and lunch and go home with a warm heart. We especially need help on the weekday dates.
Special Olympics are held at Perfect North Slopes, Lawrenceburg, IN. All events are listed below.
To sign you up, I need your full address and phone numbers. Also, please indicate your ski level - expert or intermediate skier and whether you have previous experience as a ski partner or course worker.
Ski Partners needed:
Winter is almost here! We need ski partners and course workers for any of the 7 days on the snow at Perfect North Slopes again this year in January. This is one of the most rewarding things you can do and it involves skiing!
The 2021 dates are as follows:
COVID fear has taken its toll so we currently only have 4 dates instead of the normal 7.
TBD – Ky area 7 one day ski events 9am-4:30pm
Monday, January 11 from 12pm–5pm
Indiana State Winter Games (Course workers only)
CANCELLED - Ohio Hamilton County - One day all events
Monday, January 25 from 2pm - 5pm Ski practice (Ski partners only)
Tuesday, January 26 from 8:30am-5pm - events and awards
Kentucky State Winter Games
Also, these are all skiing events so we can't use snowboarders as ski partners.
Lots of volunteer spots for non-skiing helpers.
We are always short of help on the weekdays. Ski Partners must be at least 16 years old and should be intermediate or better skiers able to give encouragement and direction to the Athletes. There has never been a better reason to take a few days off work to go skiing! All events are at Perfect North Slopes - East Lodge.
Thanks in advance for your time to help all these great Athletes!

Thanks so much!
