We are pleased to be offering our very popular Unified Sports Leagues again this season. Unified Sports is an exciting inclusive program that brings together athletes with and without intellectual disabilities in a setting where all are challenged to improve their skills. Participants develop friendships and an understanding of each other's capabilities through a spirit of equality and team unity.
The programs are co-sponsored by IDA of the NRV, Blacksburg Parks and Recreation, and Special Olympics. All ability levels are welcome! All leagues need players. Join us--Fun guaranteed!
