Special Olympics Unified Sports® is an inclusive sports program that combines an approximately equal number of Special Olympics athletes (individuals with intellectual disabilities) and partners (individuals without intellectual disabilities) on teams for training and competition.
Special Olympics College engages University of Alabama students to enhance the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through sports, friendship, advocacy, and other activities all the while promoting social inclusion. Through a partnership with University Recreation, SO College offers Unified Sports Rivalry Games in Flag Football and Basketball. Previous opponents include: Auburn, Ole Miss, and LSU. Intramural Sports also offers Unified Leagues for Basketball and Volleyball.
Volunteer. You don’t have to be good at sports to make a difference. Special Olympics College is looking for UA students to volunteer that want to have fun, make friends, and show someone they care. Help make game day the best day of someone’s week by:
Games and practices are typically on Sunday afternoons from 3 – 5 p.m. at the Student Recreation Center. Please stop by to check it out.
