There is no better way to combine a love of sports and Special Olympics than by becoming a Unified Sports partner! Unified partners (individuals without intellectual disabilities) train and compete as a teammate alongside Special Olympics athletes on a Unified Sports Team. Unified partners can be any age! Whether you are participating in a Young Athletes activity, on a Unified Champion Schools team, or on your Unified community team, you will experience an opportunity like no other.
- Athletics (Track)
- Cross Country Ski
This is an evolving list. If there is a sport you would like to see Unified, please let us know!
Unified Sports teams come in all shapes and sizes depending on the sport. To find available Unified Sports opportunities in your area, contact your local program coordinator or the Director of Unified Champion Schools .
It is also recommended Unified Sports partners watch the Special Olympics Unified Sports® Educational Video and read the Principle of Meaningful Involvement Resource to understand their role as a Unified teammate. Please Contact Laura Kelly for more information.
