Position Description

Comox Valley Special Olympics is looking for a volunteer to assist with our FUNdamentals Program on Saturday mornings.

The FUNdamentals program is a program for children with intellectual disabilities between the ages of 5 and 11 that teaches basic movement and sport skills. The family-centred program provides children with an in-depth introduction to sport-related motor skills along with training and competition, while maintaining an atmosphere of fun and meaningful interaction.

The 30-week program introduces the sports of soccer, softball, basketball and track and field, and provides children with the opportunity to learn and practice the sport skills necessary for participants to later move into community or traditional Special Olympics programs.

The FUNdamentals program also introduces basic nutrition information to both parents and children through a series of fun activities at the conclusion of each session.
