Special Olympics Waitakere Football Coach Paul Misselbrook has been married for 33 years and has 3 adult children ranging in age from 29 to 21.

Paul’s favourite sport is football and his favourite team is Arsenal.

Involved with the Special Olympics Waitakere Club for 9 years as a football coach, Paul is now the Club Chairperson, a role he has undertaken for the past 5 years.

Paul became involved with Special Olympics when the Waitakere club were looking to set up a football team and his wife said, “my husband coaches football” to the local SONZ staff person and from there his association with Special Olympics began.

Paul highlights during the past 9 years include, attending the NSG in Dunedin and then in Wellington, coaching Waitakere Football team to a Bronze medal in Division 1 at the Wellington NSG. As well as attending two Football Coaching Clinics in Singapore organised by Special Olympics Asia Pacific and the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, where coaches from all over the region attended.

Being the Chairperson at Special Olympics Waitakere and seeing our Club grow and seeing their athletes being successful in their chosen sports is also a highlight of Paul’s time with Special Olympics.

In 2016 Paul won the Sport Waitakere Volunteer of the Year Award

At the World Summer Games Paul is looking forward to the challenge of coaching a Unified Team at the games and see how other countries run their football programs. He is looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere of this massive event and enjoying the culture in Abu Dhabi.

 Paul says that being part of the Special Olympics New Zealand team to the WSG is a huge highlight and he is looking forward to being part of a successful team.
