Coach of the Season

David Amavisca

Hometown: Santa Maria

Please join the SOSC family in congratulating David Amavisca as the recipient for the 2018 Floor Hockey Coach of the Season award! David first started with Special Olympics as a proud parent when his son became an athlete. He then started coaching softball and after his son became interested in floor hockey, he decided to coach floor hockey as well. Being able to watch the athletes come out of their comfort zone and interact with each other in a positive environment is what keeps David coming back, he loves watching the athletes grow and improve with time. He expressed, “I love that Special Olympics is here for adults and children with physical and learning disabilities, it allows them to participate and learn a sport that gives them the confidence to succeed. In his spare time, David, enjoys hanging out with his family and friends and watching his grand babies grow up.
