Special Olympics Iowa and the Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) are beginning a partnership! The partnership is an exciting step to grow and recognize Unified sports as other sports are recognized in your schools and across the state. IHSAA will work to promote Unified sports programs during the 2023-2024 school year. As Unified sports grow here in Iowa, we look forward to expanding offerings to schools in the 2024-2025 school year and beyond. Potential opportunities through Special Olympics Iowa and the IHSAA include Unified bowling, Unified basketball and others as more IHSAA member schools establish Unified programs through the Unified Champion Schools program. These opportunities will be shared as they become available while IHSAA also works to promote unified programs through Special Olympics Iowa.
