In 2015, Bernards Township School District was awarded a grant from Special Olympics to start a Unified Sports program. The program started at Ridge High School in 2015, and a program at WAMS followed in 2017.
The high school team competes competitively, playing in games and tournaments against other Unified schools and participating in the SONJ Unified Cups. High school players with and without disabilities participate together as teammates. The middle school team plays recreationally, and athletes and partners play together with some modifications and mentoring.
Recreational play does not follow any prescribed training, competition and/or team composition requirements. Students of all abilities are encouraged to join our team!
We offer the following programs:
Soccer (fall) Registration mid August
Basketball (winter) Registration mid December
Track (spring) Registration Mid March
