Active Start for 2 - 7 year olds Starting this Fall

The Active Start program is the first stage in the Canadian Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model. It is designed to introduce basic fundamental movement skills to young athletes. The idea behind physical literacy is that young athletes need a supportive, inclusive, and fun environment to develop the basic skills necessary to remain active in sport. For example, a young athlete must learn the skill of kicking so that later on in life they can participate in soccer. The Active Start program introduces these basic skills to young athletes in a fun and supportive environment.

Young Special Olympics athletes are encouraged to register for this exciting new program.  Parent or other caregiver must attend with their Special Olympic athlete.  

Jennifer Sweezey, our Head Coach and Marilyn Davis, Assistant Coach are looking forward to meeting you!  Drop by Registration Day, Sunday September 16th at the Water Tower Inn Pavilion or email ssm@specialolympicsontario.ca if you'd like further information.
