Unified Soccer Team gears up for tournament

(Continued)

MT. VERNON — —

Clodi said the team will compete against well over a dozen other teams in the upcoming tournament.

I think it works to help build up and give a good peer model to our Special Olympics athletes on the actual skill of soccer,” Clodi said of the program. “It can also teach humanity and be character-building for the peer partners.”

MVTHS is the only school in this area with a unified soccer team. However, the program is also open to other local schools.

Clodi said she would like to see more local schools get involved so the MVTHS team does not have to travel so far to compete.

The biggest challenge is not being able to have local games against other unified soccer teams,” Clodi said.

For more information on the program, contact Clodi at 246-5819.
