of the Month award for January. The team received a trophy and $100 donation to the program
Kamiak’s Unified Co-ed basketball team started in 2015. Unified sports include athletes with and without disabilities to promote inclusion and acceptance for all in the school. In 2018-19, the Varsity “Purple” team was undefeated and the JV “Silver” team took second place in districts.
The program has doubled in size every year since it started. Currently, there are four Unified Basketball teams with a total of 45 participants.
Kamiak Unified Sports has recently received National Banner Status from Special Olympics North America for its excellence in inclusive practices.
