Interscholastic Unified Sports

Interscholastic Unified Sports

By providing opportunities for students both with all types of disabilities and without disabilities to participate in sports meaningfully and by engaging other students in the school community, Interscholastic Unified Sports (IUS) helps promote inclusion, acceptance, and respect.

The Special Olympics Interscholastic Unified Sports program is supported by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) and the Bureau of Special Education, Pennsylvania Department of Education.

Special Olympics Pennsylvania is working with 370+ schools throughout Pennsylvania to provide IUS programs for Indoor Bocce, Track and Field, and Soccer.  

Over the course of four years, Special Olympics Pennsylvania seeks to build a network of partnerships with school districts which encompass all areas of the state.  The goal is to have high schools throughout Pennsylvania offer Interscholastic Unified Sports opportunities in at least two Unified Sports.
