Unified Basketball

Weld RE-4 School District is thrilled to announce that Windsor Middle School has paired with Special Olympics to launch a Unified Basketball program this year. Unified Sports is an inclusive sports program that unites Special Olympic athletes (individuals with intellectual disabilities or special education needs) and partners (individuals without disabilities or special education needs) as teammates for training and competition.

 

Below is a great video highlighting the power of Unified Sports.

The WMS Unified Basketball season will run February through March.  We plan to play unified teams from around Northern Colorado. We will practice, or have a game, two afternoons a week. Practice will be from 3:30pm to 4:30pm, typically Mondays and Fridays at the Windsor Recreation Center.

 

If you have a student with autism, down syndrome, a brain injury, cerebral palsy, or is supported by special education services at school, we want your student to join our team as an athlete!!  

 

Our goal is to promote social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences.
