Sports program quality depends on the competence and dedication of the coaches. Special Olympics Québec provides coaches with various resources and a training program.
A course is offered to coaches and volunteers to prepare them to work with special athletes. This training is called [SOC Theory Level 1] and is recognized by the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The volunteer can then, if they wish, continue their training to Level 2 and undertake further technical development in the sport(s) of their choice.
Under the responsibility of the relevant sports federations, the volunteer coach will be able to acquire knowledge specific to their sport.
An annual conference of all members is also held to encourage the development of volunteer resources.
