Registration is now open for Alberta’s first Unified Basketball event!

Unified Sports is an easy way to promote inclusion and student leadership in your school using sport as a unifying element. This program was started in September 2015 due to a partnership between the ASAA and Special Olympics Alberta. To finish off the pilot year of Unified Sports, two Unified Basketball events will take place – one in Edmonton and one in Calgary. For more information on Unified Basketball, including the rules and the team composition requirements, please see the attached info package. Please send completed registration forms to
