Unified Sports® is a team sports program that brings people together! It also allows us to eliminate barriers and stereotypes about people with intellectual disabilities in a fun way that engages the whole community. ESPN has served as the Global Presenting Sponsor of Special Olympics Unified Sports since 2013, supporting the growth and expansion of this program.
Unified Sports Empowers Individuals With And Without Intellectual Disabilities Through Inclusive Sports.
Unified Sports goes beyond sports training and competition to promote social inclusion and meaningful connection. After all, when we train together and play together, a quick path to friendship and understanding is formed. Teams are made up of people of similar age and ability to make practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all.
Having sport in common is just one more way that false ideas are swept away and positive change is created.
