Middle School Unified Basketball
(New and Exciting Opportunity:
We are excited to kick off Wilson Middle School's inaugural season of Unified Basketball.
Special Olympics Unified Sports is a program that empowers individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to engage through the power of sports. Special Olympics Unified Sports is dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, joining everyone on the same team. Unified Sports was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.
Our season will start and end in March 2020
