    School Partnership Program with Special Olympics of Northern California

    SONC School Partnership Program

    SFUSD and SONC Schools Partnership Program will provide competitive and non-competitive athletic opportunities (including Unified Games) to all school-age children with special needs. Our ultimate goal is for all participating students to experience a fun, inclusive, and safe environment that fosters a deep understanding and respect of individual differences, and that through the spirit of teamwork, inclusiveness, and individual challenges, life skills are enhanced.

    Our three large events include soccer, basketball, and track & field. Usually, these events take place in winter, spring, and late spring/early summer. Our goal is to expand the number of students we reach with our events within SFUSD and provide more events for them to partake in, in the future. ​
