Volunteers needed for Special Olympics basketball assessment in Keene March 15
“It’s an all-day event at Keene State College,” said Meghan Spaulding, recreation program coordinator.
According to Spaulding, more than 40 teams are expected to come to the games to demonstrate their skills, courage and joy.
The preliminary games are used to ensure the teams will be competing in the correct bracket at the state tournament set to take place in Portsmouth at the end of the month, Spaulding said.
Spaulding said she is looking for officials to donate their time and help provide a quality sports environment for the athletes. While knowledge of basketball is great, it is not necessary.
“The Kiwanis Club helps with the lunches, but they always accept more hands,” she said.
Games are set to begin at 9 a.m. and run until noon. Lunch will be provided and games are expected to resume at 1 p.m. and finish between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.
