Unified Soccer pairs individuals with and without intellectual disabilities (ID) to train and compete on the same team. This first session of Pick Up Unified Soccer will be a recreation league for Special Olympics Athletes and Unified Partners to come together, have fun and play soccer! Unified Sports is a great way to engage people with ID, agency staff and high school students that want to be active and participate alongside each other, as teammates, in sports.

What is Unified Sports?
“ Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.
In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability, which makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. “
