Four Corners is a new provincial basketball program that aims to enhance the fitness and ability levels of youth athletes from across the province.
The Four Corners program will serve to provide quality competition to school and community youth athletes with intellectual disabilities across the province and provide a vehicle for continued success for these athletes through advancement to a provincial final competition. This exercise will bring together athletes from the four corners (northern, eastern, southern and western Ontario).  Additionally this program will leave an ongoing legacy by fostering competition coordination capacity through partnerships with local community colleges and universities. As well, the creation of ActiveStart and FUNdamentals programming within local community partners, further raising awareness of the opportunities presented by sport for children and youth with intellectually disablities.
