MMU Unified Update:

CONGRATS to the Unified Soccer team for WINNING the SILVER medal at the 2023 School Unified Soccer Tournament. The tournament took place at Norwich University. This competition includes schools from throughout Vermont. Athletes and partners have the ability to compete in 5 per side team soccer or inpidual skills.

The VPA Unified Basketball season will begin again this year in February! Last season was a great example of what sportsmanship should look like! Looking forward to seeing our partner schools again this winter!

In May, we had a number of GOLD, SILVER, and BRONZE medal teams at the Special Olympics State Bocce tourney at the Complex in St. Albans. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather and had a GREAT time in their final event of the school year!

We are EXTREMELY proud of our team, as they represented MMU proudly, and competed in the tournament ... CONGRATULATIONS COUGARS!!!

By pairing peers with and without disabilities on the same team, students are given the opportunity to build more inclusive schools. Unified Sports promotes equality on and off the field. The motto for Unified Sports is "On the field we're teammates and off the field we're friends".

We currently offer six Unified Sports® competition experiences for schools and local programs:
