In 2008 the landmark Maryland Fitness and Athletics Equity for Students with Disabilities Law was passed. This law ensures students with disabilities are provided with equivalent opportunities in interscholastic sports, physical education, and intramural sports.
Unified Sports® provides a means which brings together students with and without disabilities in a fulfilling inclusive experience. Unified Sports® teams are composed of a proportional number of students with intellectual disabilities, with other types of disabilities, and without disabilities who train and compete together on the same team.
