  • Practices will be held twice each week on Thursdays from 4:30-5:30pm starting August 21-October 26, 2014.

This is a Unified Sport! What does that mean?  Unified sports are defined by Special Olympics as, “Unified Sports® combine athletes with and without disabilities (Unified Partner) on the same team. By participating together, athletes and Unified Partners improve their physical fitness, sharpen their skills, challenge the competition and overcome prejudices about intellectual disabilities.”
