GHS gears up for first season of Unified Sports this spring
Gloversville High School students attended a Youth Activation Summit on Jan. 27 at Saratoga High School. The summit provided the students, who are members of the school's new Youth Acitivation Committee, training on how to create awareness for students with disabilities.
The school's new Unified basketball team will kick off its inaugural season this spring. Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.
The new Youth Acitivation Committee members will help organize and play in games.
