About Us

Coordinator, Mike Borders

Mike started working with Special Olympics for the basketball season in 1992. He started with Dr. Pat Owens, who originally started the program. Mike was a volunteer basketball coach, and a couple years later started coaching track. As UASO continued to grow he added soccer and then softball to his coaching duties. Mike's long history and dedication has profoundly established & contributes to the ongoing success of Upper Arlington Special Olympics. Thank you Mike! Mike is retired and enjoying additional new adventures.

Volunteer Coordinator, Open Role

UASO is entirely run by volunteers. The Volunteer Coordinator's primary responsibility is to recruit volunteers who are committed to support our athletes as they improve their athletic skills, stay safe and have fun! You will work to make connections with schools, churches, or other business or organizations to recruit & communicate volunteer opportunities. Volunteers are needed for all practices & events for all sports. You will direct volunteer participation at practices to pair volunteers with one or more athletes. You will partner with a parent volunteer to sign in all volunteers at practices and events.  

If you are interested in the role of UASO Volunteer Coordinator, please contact Mike Borders at [email protected]
