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 others capabilities through a spirit of equality and team unity.
Swimming and bowling continue thru April in Blacksburg and Christiansburg. Athletes will compete in a Regional Swim Meet in April and the Unified Softball Teams will start up again in April.
Please use the form below to let us know where you are interested in volunteering. We look forward to working with you.
