Special Olympics North Carolina has partnered with East Carolina University (ECU) to offer Unified Sports Soccer to ECU students and Special Olympics North Carolina athletes in Pitt County and surrounding areas. In this recreation model of Unified Sports, assessment days are used to introduce the students (who will be Unified partners) and Special Olympics athletes and create teams to form a Unified Sports Soccer League. On competition days, each team will have one game at 6 p.m. Teams will be seeded for playoffs based on their overall record during the competition days. A playoff day will determine the Intramural Recreation Unified Sports champion. ECU students must register through Campus Recreation and Special Olympics athletes should contact Brent Harpe (email@example.com). Please note that Pitt County athletes must be between the ages of 18-30 to participate in this league. Below is the schedule for the league this season:
Monday, March 30 @ 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. – Introduction and Assessment day
Monday, April 6 @ 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. – Week 1
