About the event
FUNdamentals, along with Active Start, is one of two initiatives developed by Special Olympics Canada for young athletes. FUNdamentals is a continuation of the Active Start program for athletes with an intellectual disability ages 7-12. This program transitions from basic movement skills to basic sport and physical literacy skills while maintaining an atmosphere of fun and meaningful interaction. This program also promotes specific sport education, proper nutrition, and social inclusion through participation in positive sport environment. The skills learned in this program provide support for everyday activities as well as a base for Special Olympics sports training and competition as athletes grow older.
