Recently, the students in the School to Community Program at Granite Ridge Education Centre were selected to attend the Special Olympics Provincial Championship to be held on June 12th – 14th, 2017 in Niagara Falls. The students competed in a qualifying soccer tournament back in February where based on the results from that tournament the team was selected from over 100 other Ontario Soccer teams to complete against 12 teams at the Provincials.
We are so proud of our athletes for the dedication and hard work they have put in to training for this upcoming championship. The two-day tournament hosts over 800 athletes, coaches and staff from across Ontario competing in basketball, bocce, soccer, track & field and floor hockey.
We hope our athletes enjoy this wonderful opportunity in Niagara Falls and come away from the tournament with new friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
