Unified Partners Make A Huge Impact on Special Olympics

Unified Sports® is an inclusive sports program that combines an approximately equal number of Special Olympics athletes and unified partners on teams for training and competition. Learn more and sign up to get involved in unified sports.

Sharing One Language: Sport

Being a partner is an additional means of carrying out and fulfilling the mission of Special Olympics. Teams are constructed in such a way as to provide training and competition opportunities that meaningfully challenge and involve all athletes. These opportunities often lead to improved sports skills, higher self-esteem, and equal status among peers and new friendships.

Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program Empowers Leadership and Encourages Participation.

12819223_10154064693353783_3460347302375158929_oSpecial Olympics Louisiana’s  Athlete Leadership Program empowers athletes to explore opportunities for greater participation in our movement beyond sports training and competition: as coaches, officials, spokespeople, and Board and committee members. Athlete leaders are an integral part of the Special Olympics Movement and help Special Olympics leaders stay in touch with athletes’ interests. This way we can ensure that our programs remain vital and attractive to the people we serve.

The Athlete Leadership Council is made up of athletes from all across Louisiana. Council meetings provide a forum for athletes to report to other athletes what is happening in their areas, voice their opinions about important issues and gain leadership training and experience.
