Recently Special Olympics Ontario introduced Sport Specific Conferencing (see Provincial News Update page 6) Sport Conferencing will promote high quality competition experiences and provide fair and equitable advancement opportunities for athletes. Sport Conferencing also ensures and a more equalized distribution of athletes/teams for each sport across the province

Included in this document you will find a breakdown per sport whereby all registered sports programs have been assigned to a designated conference. Each conference will host one Provincial Qualifier. The Provincial Qualifier must be approved by Special Olympics Ontario. Communities are encouraged to host invitational competitions in addition to the Provincial Qualifiers. Communities who host invitational competitions are encouraged to extend their competition invite outside of their own conference.

 To be eligible for advancement to Provincial Games athletes/teams/coaches must participate in their identified Provincial Qualifier Competition. Quota’s for Provincial Games will be based upon the number of athletes/teams that participated in the Provincial Qualifier in the year preceding the Provincial Games and will be proportionally divided amongst all conferences based on participation numbers at the Provincial Qualifier.  Please note that athletes registered in the adapt divisions are not eligible for advancement to Provincial Games and therefore will not be included in the calculations for quota.

 

Should you have any questions please contact your District Developer. 

 

 

 

Regards,

Youth Age Participation in Sports

posted Jul 16, 2013, 11:27 AM by Pratima Bhatt   [ updated Jul 16, 2013, 11:27 AM ]

Dear Community Coordinators, Parents, Coaches and Athletes,

This e-mail is regarding an important study being conducted by Special Olympics in Canada. Special Olympics Ontario is working with York University on a comprehensive assessment of sport participation in youth ages 11-21 years with intellectual disabilities. The Special Olympics research team at York University is inviting parents/caregivers to participate in a survey that can make a huge difference to the Special Olympics community.

If you’re interested in a participating please visit, www.specialolympicsontario.com/parentsurvey.

By combining your voice with up to 6,000 other Special Olympics Ontario families, we hope that this research will inform how policies and services, including sport programs like Special Olympics, are developed for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

This survey is important because your feedback will help us understand how and why athletes participate in sport as well as in other home, community and school activities. We also want to learn about their well-being and that of your family. We hope that this information can be used to help improve services for people with intellectual disabilities and their families, in and out of Special Olympics.

Participants are automatically entered into a draw to win a pizza party for their child’s entire Special Olympics team!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you have any questions or concerns regarding the study, please contact:
Lauren Wolman at laurenw@specialolympicsontario.ca or call (416) 447-8326 x 257 and leave a message and she will respond to you as soon as possible.

We appreciate your time and consideration!
