Support the Great Oak High School Special Olympics Unified Sports® Program

Team sports bring people together. Special Olympics Unified Sports® teams do that, too and much more. About 1.2 million people worldwide take part in Unified Sports, breaking down stereotypes about people with intellectual disabilities in a really fun way. Unified Sports supports program empowers individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to engage through the power of sports. Young people with disabilities do not often get a chance to play on their school sports teams. More and more U.S. states are adopting the Unified Sports approach that Special Olympics pioneered. Special Olympics has trained and mobilized youth leaders and educators to create more inclusive schools by including students with Disabilities in all aspects of school life. Social inclusion is promoted by bringing together young people with and without Disabilities on Unified sports teams through inclusive student clubs, and by fostering youth leadership. As many as 19.5 million young people are taking part in these experiences, which are increasing acceptance of people of all abilities while simultaneously reducing stigma and bullying. The Unified GOHS Team trains daily in the Unified Sports PE class under the leadership of our GE Physical Education Teacher/Coach & Special Education Team. Our athletes will compete in 6 tournaments: basketball, flag-football, bocce-ball, soccer, softball & track/field. We need fundraising to support our program need of equipment, uniforms, tournament day food/snacks/water. Thank you for supporting this special program! GOHS Unified Sports Team

Unified Sports Southwest League/Great Oak High School ABOUT Unified Sports Southwest League/Great Oak High School

Unified Sports is 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. That makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.
