01/15/16 – KHSAA and Special Olympics Kentucky Continue Unified Track & Field Program

January 13, 2016 Track and Field Blog Updates

For the second year, the KHSAA and Special Olympics Kentucky will once partner to offer Unified Track and Field events at the 2016 KHSAA State Track and Field Meet. With that in mind, we wanted to share some relevant information with schools interested in organizing Unified Track and Field teams and competitors. 

These athletic events give many of the students in member schools the opportunity to compete in exhibition events, much like the wheelchair events added several years ago. We look forward to working with schools on this opportunity, which includes the option to obtain financial grant money for coaches from SOKY.  


Please contact our office with any questions. This is a fairly new program for the KHSAA and we look forward to working alongside our membership to continue expanding opportunities for the students in the Commonwealth.
