If you don’t have this at your school, You should!
Thank you for your interest in bringing Unified Sports to your school. Every school should have this program, which promotes social inclusion by bringing students with and without intellectual disabilities together as teammates. Participating schools incorporate an evidence-based youth leadership model that reduces bullying and teasing, overturns negative stereotypes and encourages healthy social interactions.
#PLAYUNIFIED – Take pride in a more socially inclusive school.
#LIVEUNIFIED – Develop an inclusive community and happier society with Unified Sports.
#CHOOSETOINCLUDE – All students deserve the opportunity to compete..
“Unified is more than a sports league – it’s a way of life. Together as teammates in every sense, our Unified athletes and partners are creating school communities where inclusion, tolerance and acceptance of all students is the rule and not the exception.”
— Stacey Hengsterman, president and CEO of Special Olympics New York
