St. Vrain’s Unified Athletes will be coming together for a fun filled day of outdoor activities.
The 2nd Annual Unified Day of Champions will take place on Monday, May 16 from 9:45am – 1:00pm at Longmont High School’s Everly Montgomery Field. Approximately, 135 unified athletes from the district’s eight high school’s and Main Street School will participate in the event. Additionally, Silver Creek Leadership Academy is coordinating 60 volunteers to assist with the event.
This year’s events will consist of 10 different stations, including: outdoor bowling, cornhole/shuffle board, beach ball, tennis, basketball, kickball, 50 meter run, percussion, a dunk tank (where students can dunk their school principal), and a break station.
Last year, was the inaugural year for the event. The Athletic Directors in the district explored the idea because of all the unified sports cancellations, due to COVID. However, the event was such a success that they decided it should be an annual event.
Unified sports is a collaborative approach to creating opportunities for students with and without disabilities to participate in extracurricular activities such as basketball, soccer, and bowling.
Parents and spectators are welcome and encouraged to attend the event to cheer on the athletes. It’s sure to be a good time!
