Team sports bring people together, however, Unified Sports teams do that too and much more! Unified Sports joins students with and without special needs on the same teams. The philosophy is that training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. Amity Middle School in Orange (AMSO) was recently the host team for their very first Unified Soccer Tournament! The event began with AMSO students carrying the American flag into the arena (indoor sports center), lighting the torch, and leading the audience in the Special Olympics pledge at Avon Old Farms Middle School. Each team played two games, and a fantastic time was had by all! AMSO administration, staff, and faculty are very proud of the AMSO athletes and partners who took part in this wonderful event.
