Unified Champion Schools (UCS)
Unified Champion Schools (UCS) is a movement that aims to change school communities through the power of inclusion, acceptance, sport and Unified activities. Unified Champion Schools allows students to be change agents in their communities so that everyone can feel included by their peers. The Special Olympics Oregon Unified Champion School program is aimed at promoting social inclusion through planned and implemented shared sports training and competition experiences.
A Special Olympics Unified Champion School is a combination of three components:
Live Unified Play Unified
Recreation & Player Development
Teammates may be of varying ages and ability levels. However, they must be engaged together on the same team in the activity and in a meaningful and appropriate manner.
Teammates are of similar age and ability level. Develop league and championship play against other schools within the same school district.
