Unified flag football teams enter second year

Wabash High School Unified Sports fall program, Unified Flag Football has begun and is off to a great start.

Unified Sports is a collaborative partnership between the Indiana High School Athletic Association and Special Olympics Indiana that promotes servant leadership among student athletes while changing their lives as well as the lives of those with intellectual disabilities.

Since its inception in 2012, Special Olympics International has supported Unified Sports as a model program to activate schools through “Project Unify,” which also has the endorsement of the National Federation of High Schools.

Unified Sports has a sectional and state tournament series just like the other sports that the IHSAA promotes.

It’s not only about competition, but it’s also a way that each participating school commits to raising money towards Special Olympics to help fund other inclusive opportunities.
