Unified Soccer begins!

We are excited to announce that Discovery Middle School is collaborating with Special Olympics to offer Unified Sports! Unified sports teams consist of approximately equal number of athletes and partners. Athletes are students with intellectual disabilities (IQ less than 70) and partners are students without intellectual disabilities. The current Unified season being offered is Unified Soccer. The season will run from April 30th – May 23rd. Together, athletes and partners will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school day and will compete locally with other VSD schools after school on Wednesdays during the sports season. Here are the step-by-step instructions for signing up:
