MRFC is proud to announce its recently formed partnership with Enumclaw Special Olympics, and is now on the forefront of growing the Special Olympics/Unified Soccer Program within the MRFC Community and surrounding areas.
MRFC is seeking Adult Coaches
Whether you’re new to coaching, or new to working with people with intellectual disabilities, you will discover that coaching a Unified Sports team is unlike any other experience you’ve ever had. While the challenges may be similar – you will be defining roles in line with ability and fostering teamwork – the goals, motivations and even the meaning of winning are different.
MRFC is seeking Unified Athletes & Unified Partners
Special Olympics is dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences. Unified Sports joins Unified Athletes (with intellectual disabilities) and Unified Partners (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.
In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability. That makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.
Ages: 8-15 (All teams are co-ed)
Registration is OPEN: see link below
Registration Fee: $40 for each Special Olympic Unified Athlete or Unified Partner
Practices Begin: March 26th, 2018 (Two practices per week)
