One of the photos about the coaching fellowship in Serbia.

You may have heard that Special Olympics has been awarded a two-year grant from the SportsUnited Division of the U.S. Department of State to support a coaching fellowship to recruit and train high level Special Olympics coaches and leaders from the United States, Serbia, and Montenegro. A total of 20 fellows from the United States, Serbia, and Montenegro will participate in various 10-day workshops focused on recruiting and training high-level coaches and adapting their skills to work with athletes with intellectual disabilities to compete in soccer (football) and volleyball. Check out the link below to see photos from the trip.

About Will Schermerhorn: I am SOI's director of web products and the father of a Special Olympics athlete who loves volleyball.
