Elementary Programs


This school year, SOO Sports Festivals will offer both Active Start and FUNdamentals programs. Athletes in the Active Start Program will participate in activities designed to develop fundamental movement skills that build a foundation of physical literacy. FUNdamentals athletes will work through activities that introduce several different sports and skills. The goal of the Sports Festival is to provide an entry point to a pathway for athletes to progress towards participation in structured and/or competitive programs in the future.
