Unified Sports Track Meet
GDRHS will host a unified track meet on Tuesday, May 6th starting at 3:30. GD will play host to North Middlesex Regional High School and Lunenburg HS. Unified sports has been a tremendously successful initiative. Last year was the inaugural season, and thanks to the amazing staff members and students who participate it has proven a great success. Below is some background information on Unified Sports along with a link to the Special Olympics website, which includes additional information.
Unified Sports is a program that combines approximately equal numbers of individuals with (athletes) and without (partners) intellectual disabilities on the same sports teams for training and competition. All participants are of similar age and ability. Unified Sports is an important program because it expands sports opportunities for athletes and partners seeking new challenges. In addition, Unified Sports dramatically increases inclusion in the community by helping to break down barriers that have historically kept people apart. At the same time, Unified Sports provides a valuable sports opportunity to individuals who are not presently involved with Special Olympics or other sports programs.
