FCIAC holds Unified Sports basketball tournament

The principle behind the Special Olympics Unified Sports program is basic: Training together and playing sports together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.

For 22 teams from 11 FCIAC schools, that principle was in the spotlight when Fairfield-Ludlowe High School hosted the Jack Title Unified Sports Basketball Tournament last Wednesday.

Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team.

In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability, which makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.

Young people with disabilities don’t often get a chance to play on their school sports teams, but more and more U.S. states are adopting the unified sports approach that Special Olympics pioneered.

Worldwide, half a million people take part in Unified Sports and the FCIAC is among that growing family.
