Our sports training and competition opportunities provide athletes of all ability levels the chance to play and be part of a team. Skills like being a good teammate, winning with grace, and encouraging others are all skills that carry over into their every day lives. We're in our schools! Through sports, we are bringing special education students and general education students on the same playing field, promoting acceptance and respect for all.
We offer year-round training and competitions in 10 sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The skills our athletes gain on the playing field carries over to the playing field of life.
The Schools Partnership Program is a unique education program in K-12 schools. It unifies students with and without disabilities through sports, promoting acceptance and respect.
