What is Unified Basketball?
The Vermont Principals’ Association, in partnership with Special Olympics Vermont, created Vermont’s Unified Sports Basketball League.
Unified Basketball Teams will play other schools around the state, and the season will culminate in a tournament in May.
Special Olympics Unified Sports pairs up athletes who may have physical, developmental or cognitive disabilities with peer partners who compete together in various sporting events. The goal is bringing together students with and without disabilities on the same team, and shattering stereotypes and creating communities of inclusion in the process. In unified basketball, there are three players and two partners on the floor. The flow of play is designed so that the players are given the maximum opportunity to shoot and score.
