Area 12 will offer a Unified Sports Coaches Training for certified Level I Special Olympics coaches who wish to coach a Unified Team.
The Unified Sports program combines Special Olympics Athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (called Unified Partners) on sports teams for training and competition.
Those attending this training must be certified in at least one Special Olympics sport, and will be able to coach Unified in any SOTX sport.
Registration is required to attend this training. Contact the area office by July 16.
Note- In instance where not enough coaches sign up for this class, other alternative arrangements can be made for those who would still like to take the training.
