It has been a long time coming, but some of our favorite athletes in Montana finally get their time in the spotlight. The Montana Special Olympics State Basketball Tournament will return to Butte next week.

Friday and Saturday, November 11 & 12, the Special Olympics will host their State Basketball Tournament throughout multiple facilities in Butte. To make sure these games are a success volunteers are needed.

After 2 years of modified competition, and localized events, we will gather together again for the final year of the basketball tournament in Butte. Over 800 competitors and 250 team volunteers from 40 different delegations, from all corners of our great state, will converge on Butte to compete in this fantastic tournament. The scope of this event is staggering, venues include the Maroon Activity Center, Butte Central High School, Butte High School, East Middle School, West Elementary School, and the LDS Church will all be used.

Volunteers are needed at all locations. The biggest need as of now is officials at all locations. Some of the other volunteer opportunities include helping athletes check-in and information, scorebook keeping, marshals, helpers at the awards ceremony, and many more opportunities to get involved. Any amount of time you can give is greatly appreciated, whether it’s 2 hours for one day, or multiple hours each day. Let’s make sure this State Basketball Tournament is one to remember for every athlete.
