What are Unified Sports?
The Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) and Special Olympics have joined together to create Unified Sports in schools. The mission of Unified Sports® is to create an inclusive program that combines individuals with intellectual disabilities (athletes) and individuals without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition. At CUSD Unified Sports are considered varsity sports. Each participant who completes the season and attends all required practices and events receive a Varsity Letter from their home school.
All participants must also complete an Athletic Clearance Packet.
