Description:

The FUNdamentals program is for children with intellectual disabilities between the ages of 5 and 11, with the introduction of basic movement skills and basic sport skills. The family-centred program provides children with a more in-depth introduction to sport-related motor skills along with training and competition, while maintaining an atmosphere of fun and meaningful interaction.

The 10-week program introduces the sports of soccer, softball, basketball and track and field, and provides children with the opportunity to learn and practice the sport skills necessary for participants to later move into community or traditional Special Olympics programs.

The FUNdamentals program also introduces basic nutrition information to both parents and children through a series of fun activities at the conclusion of each session.

The athletes-in-training who delight in the FUNdamentals program can take their sports skills to the next level by participating in Comox Valley Special Olympics weekly sports programs – find out more!
