Northern Regional Unified Soccer Tournament

What Is Unified soccer?

Soccer (football) is the world’s most popular sport. Athletes have the opportunity to compete on teams of 7 including a goalie. Unified sports combines a Special Olympics athletes with non-disabled peers on teams for competition.

In the Special Olympics context, the term “Inclusive Sports” has two distinct but closely intertwined meanings. One refers to giving people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in sports – that is, to enable them to be included in the life experience of being an athlete. The other refers to sports activities that athletes of all abilities participate in together – inclusively. The Unified Champion School’s Inclusive Sport component covers both in a youth centered framework.

The Unified Champion Schools Strategy works to further develop inclusive learning and social environments for all students, with and without disabilities. Schools can elevate the inclusion and unification among their students as well as further social emotional learning for all.

In Illinois, we offer a wide variety of Unified Sports and Unified Sport opportunities. Schools signing on to utilize the UCS Strategy in Illinois are required to include a Unified Sport component.
