Unified Soccer is part of Special Olympics’ Unified Sports programming. Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports joins individuals with intellectual disabilities (athletes) and individuals without intellectual disabilities (Unified partners) on the same sports teams. The program was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.
