Special Spirit Basketball Game
周日 3月 18, 2018
01:30 PM - 04:30 PM
Special Spirit is a project created at UMass Lowell to give Special Olympic athletes the equality and equity of being able to play sports in a division one college-level environment. It has since been adopted at the University of New Hampshire. We are bringing the event back for its third iteration on March 18, 2018, at Northeastern University’s Solomon Court!
The goal of this program is give Special Olympic athletes the recognition they deserve, and to have THEM be the main focus of a large event while raising awareness for individuals with special needs and disabilities! For the Special Spirit program, athletes will have the full experience of a college or professional game. For example, the athletes will have colorful flyers advertising before the event, they will be greeted with attractive posters and decorations for the game, announcer player introductions, special apparel to wear, cheerleaders, mascots, an exciting halftime show, and most importantly a packed gymnasium with fans just for them!
