ABOUT SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Special Olympics Ontario’s School Championships & Qualifiers Program (previously known as Four Corners) uniquely provides sport training and competition opportunities to high school student-athletes with intellectual disabilities. Our groundbreaking program allows athletes to compete and advance to the Special Olympics Ontario School Championships.
The School Championships and Qualifiers program provides quality competition experience for students with an intellectual disability aged 13-21 in the sports of basketball, floor hockey, soccer, bocce, and track & field. We ensure every athlete has a meaningful experience by divisioning our athletes by ability level. What this means is that coaches will rank their athletes prior to each Qualifier and then their team will only compete against other teams of a similar ranking. Our advancement opportunities are equitable and thus EVERY athlete and team has the same opportunity to advance through a Qualifier to our Provincial Games!
