Schools Partnership Program Competitions

Welcome to Our Unified Schools — the blog run by Special Olympics Northern California & Nevada Schools Partnership Program!

Schools Partnership Program competitions vary as much as our student-athletes and general education students do. But they all have one thing in common — while it’s a sports competition, it’s more than just sports. It’s about giving the students receiving special education services a chance to shine and to bond with their peers. Host schools take ownership of their competitions and make them unique, fun and impactful.

To illustrate competitions, here are some examples of successful school-day sports competitions!
