Unified Sport Bean Bag Toss Tournament

Special Olympics Unified Sports

Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It is inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. This program is made available in Alberta through the partnership between Alberta Schools’ Athletic Association and Special Olympics Alberta. On March 16, Bert Church High School is hosting the first tournament of its kind, a Unified Sport Bag Toss Tournament.

The Special Olympics Unified Sports tournament will have 66 students dedicating a full day of competition where teams take turns throwing bean bags at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. High schools taking part in the tournament will be Bert Church High School, Cochrane High School, W.H. Croxford High School and Chestermere High School.
