Congratulations to Special Olympics Oregon Coach

Special Olympics Oregon is pleased to announce that Doug Trice is a recipient of this year’s NRTA With Our Youth! Excellence Award. Award recipients were chosen for outstanding service to youth in the state, local and individual categories by an independent selection panel. Mr. Trice received one of three Excellence Awards in the individual category.


Doug Trice developed a year-round athletic program for youth with intellectual disabilities used at local, state and national levels. Even while holding a full-time job, Doug volunteers more than 25 hours per month overseeing 15 adult volunteers and 50 athletes. Some of his tasks include overseeing certification of personnel, conducting leader orientations and training sessions, recruiting volunteers and coaching. In addition, he personally donated $5,000 and has raised $8,000 for the program through various fundraisers.

The goal was met and exceeded.
