We want you to become a Unified Partner! Join the hundreds that already have and experience the fun!
Unified Sports® is an inclusive sports program that combines an approximately equal number of Special Olympics athletes (individuals with intellectual disabilities) and unified partners (individuals without intellectual disabilities) on teams for training and competition. More info on Unified Sports here.
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.
