The Athlete Leadership Program give Athletes the chance to have their voices heard by sitting on their region’s committee and discussing what the athlete have to say. The program give them an opportunity to speak at function to promote their region and to meet and greet guests at event. This is a real confidence boost for the athlete as they can speak on their committee and meet and greet guest. In the Athlete Leadership Program for our Region we have Jonathan Reiss, Stephanie Walker and myself Justin Hill.

SOSUNS has recently added Bocce as a sports program option! Bocce is an Italian ball sport similar to lawn bowls. It’s a great way to get fit, gain confidence and socialise with other people.
It runs between 4:30-5:30pm every Saturday at West Pymble Bicentennial Club (excluding school holidays).

On the 15th of April, about 10 Special Olympics Sydney Upper North Shore Athletes travelled to Adelaide to compete at the Special Olympics National Games.
We competed in tennis, swimming, sailing and basketball.
In basketball Josh’s team came 2nd, Michael’s came 4th, Jonathan’s team came 4th as well and my team came 2nd.
I enjoyed meeting athletes from across Australia in particular I met some Western Australia basketball athletes. Everyone had a great time and it was a great event.
