Pioneers Pilot First Unified Sports Basketball Team

Oregon City High School’s FIRST Unified Basketball Team recently played their inaugural games in a tournament hosted by Forest Grove School District. Unified Sports is a new branch of Special Olympics.

With only two practices under their belt, the Pioneer team came together and played fantastic basketball. Players Exhibited team spirit, comradery, sportsmanship, respect and honor for other teams. They had a blast and won all three of their games.

Unified Sports is an excellent way to share a sense of community and promote kindness, respect, and support of one another. It is an inspiring program that brings opportunity to students with varied intellectual abilities. Unified Sports provides players a healthy athletic activity and the pride of being on an athletics team.  

The hope for the program is that it will be a great way to help cultivate strong community unity with the inclusive spirit that represents Unified Sports. The program helps to generate awareness of the diversity within our community, building a foundation of inclusion for all students.

"I am so grateful to Steve Allen and all of the supportive staff at Oregon City School District and Oregon City High School for supporting my son and his idea to start this program," said Josie Rankin-Lary, parent. "Eventually, we hope to see unified sports for soccer, track, and golf."
