Unified Sports

Team sports are about having fun, promoting physical health and bringing people together.  Special Olympics Unified Sports® teams do all of that – and shatter stereotypes about intellectual disabilities in the process.  Unified Sports® is a program that combines approximately equal numbers of Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (known as unified partners) on sports teams for training and competition.
