Unified Sports Demo Held in Austin

By Tela Mange

Can't get past me!

About 70 Special Olympics Texas athletes, Meet in the Middle (MiM) facilitators and Unified pairs of Youth Leaders participated in a Unified Sports Demo held in Austin in early August. The demonstration was part of a three-day event that included workshops about Unified Sports, Unified Youth Leadership, and resources and support available for Project UNIFY and MiM. They also received information about SOTX programs, area offices and more. The participants represented 11 of Special Olympics Texas's 19 areas. That Saturday, they put their sports skills to use at four different stations, including softball/mini-jav throw, soccer, flag football and bocce. Everyone had a great time and learned a lot.
