Unified Sports is an initiative that brings students with and without intellectual disabilities together on the same team to compete. Local schools including Pittsford, Webster, Penfield and Honeoye Falls Lima partner with New York Special Olympics to provide sports training and athletic competition in an atmosphere of acceptance.
Pittsford Schools is one of the first in New York State to offer Unified Sports. Basketball was selected to start the program for students in grades 4 and 5. Pittsford is currently the only district that fields 2 complete teams comprised of students from all five elementary schools. The TIES program assists with student volunteers. Adult volunteers assist the coaches as well.
