Special Olympics Florida

Collier County

Standup paddle (SUP) season runs from late April through August, with practices scheduled for Thursday afternoons from 5:00 to 6:30 PM. Most practices are at Sugden Regional Park, but please be sure to check the schedule since occasional practices are held at Lowdermilk Park (Naples beach).

If practices are cancelled due to weather, we will reschedule for Saturday morning from 10:00 to 11:30 AM.

Coaches will email everyone by 3:00 on practice days if there is a change in practice schedule due to weather or other circumstances. 

Please contact one of the head coaches if you will not be able to attend practice. Their phone numbers are:

Stephanie Dangler: 239-450-1304
Doug Newell: 239-290-6847

NOTE: Our Aquatics, Golf, and Standup Paddle seasons overlap, but since the training and competition times are different for each sport, athletes may choose to participate in one, two, or all three of these sports.

All SUP athletes are required to pass a 25 meter swim test prior to practicing with the team.
