Josh Tutterow first started working with people with special needs as a staff member at Camp Spearhead in Greenville, S.C. He says it was just a summer job at first but he fell in love and worked there three more summers. After graduating college, he pursued finding ways to continue to work with the special needs population. He enjoys sports and Special Olympics was the perfect way to stay involved.
Josh began volunteering with the City of Charleston Therapeutic Recreation Department in Charleston, S.C. “I first coached tennis (even though I had no tennis experience) and was hooked; I now coach tennis, basketball, swimming, and bocce.” He says he looks forward to each practice with his athletes and their love and acceptance of him keeps him coming back.
Representing South Carolina is second nature for Josh. He’s been the head tennis coach for the South Carolina delegation in both the 2010 and 2014 USA Games. This is his first time as Assistant Coach for Special Olympics USA in World Summer Games. The Games will be held in Los Angeles, July 25-August 2.
You can follow the South Carolina athletes and coaches travels and competitions on the Special Olympics USA website and the 2015 World Summer Games website.
