UHSAA Unified Sports
In 2012, as part of an effort to reach school-aged athletes, Special Olympics Utah formed a partnership with the UHSAA to bring Unified Sports® to Utah’s high schools to provide member schools the opportunity to participate in interscholastic co-ed Unified Sports Soccer and Track & Field. The Special Olympics Unified Sports Program/UHSAA Unified Sports Program operates throughout the school year and closely follows the school calendar.
UHSAA’s mission stresses educational and cultural values, improving participation in sports and fine arts, promoting life skills and teaching lessons through competitive activities where students can learn to have mutual respect and good sportsmanship. Special Olympics Utah and the UHSAA plan to continue making these opportunities available for all students.
