Become a Unified Partner
Unified Sports brings together athletes with and without intellectual disabilities to train and compete on the same team. As a Unified Partner, you play on the team at your skill level: If you are a beginner, you will play with the beginners, or with the intermediate level or with the advanced group. No matter the level, you’ll have great fun.
