FHS Unified Basketball

FHS Unified Basketball


So this is the Falmouth High School
Unified Basketball Teams. This is a new program that the district started this year. It
combines students with intellectual disabilities with general ed students
and gives them a chance to partner up and provide kids an opportunity to play
an Interscholastic sport that they wouldn’t normally have the opportunity. It’s a
partnership between Special Olympics and the MIAA. There’s several teams in the
area. We have a five-game schedule. We hosted a Jamboree today. It just gives a lot of schools an opportunity to reach out to a sub-population that again
wouldn’t have the opportunity to play for a traditional additional team. I’ve
enjoyed getting to have playtime and I get the hang out with friends and be a role
model. Me as a regular basketball player, I don’t really get to play as much as I
do now, because the games are close and we have more competitive players. I like to be on the team, that’s why I did a couple of shots. I like to play basketball. That’s the strategy, to help make you feel better. We’re all we’re all very positive, we’re
never negative around each other. Like we always cheer each other on and it’s
good, everyone likes each other and everyone enjoys it.
