Competition breeds excellence. Special Olympics Ontario's School and Youth program are built on the premise that anyone can succeed given the right opportunity.
If an opponent is not at the right level, it can be easy to lose the excitement, and the drive to succeed goes along with it.
The School and Youth team tries to match teams of similar ability against each other, to make sure that the spirit of competition stays alive in our athletes. It is important to assess the skill level of your team before a qualifier, to ensure they are divisioned against the proper competition.
Special Olympics Ontario has created a Skill Assessment curriculum that can help you determine where your team should be placed.
