Unified basketball team at OV puts all the emphasis on having a good time

The Otter Unified basketball team’s last home game of the season will take place this Friday, April 12, at 3:00 p.m. They will recognize the seniors during a short ceremony. Join them at the OV gym to help recognize these hard working athletes.

Unified basketball is a unisex game that pairs people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. The teammates with intellectual disabilities, the “athletes,” are paired with players without intellectual disabilities, the “partners,” who mentor their teammate in developing sport-specific skills and tactics. Game rule modifications are allowed and designed to ensure meaningful involvement of all teammates.
