What better way to interact with our athletes than to become a Unified Partner and participate in our Unified Sports. More than 1.2 million people world wide take part in Unified Sports!
Special Olympics Unified Sports is an initiative that combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (called Partners) on sports teams for training and competition. Age and ability matching of athletes and Partners is defined on a sport-by-sport basis.
Unified Sports creates an environment for our athletes to put their skills to a challenge with the help of their Unified Partners. Also, it builds new friendships, promotes inclusion, and acceptance.
