There is a new game in town – “Unified Sports” – and its collaborative approach is enriching student life, and entire school communities.
Instead of guts, glory and trophies, think cooperation, generosity and even selflessness. The players – students with special needs – are shadowed during games and practice by nondisabled student “partners” who are there solely to coach and encourage them.
SVVSD has a number of schools that offer Unified Sports:
We offer flag football in the fall, basketball in the winter and soccer in the spring. Please contact your school for more information.
