NAIA Unified Field Day

April 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

Information

We are excited to share a unique opportunity coming to town. The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is a national partner of Special Olympics and is hosting their annual convention next month in Kansas City. At each national convention, the Association of Student Athletes (ASA) – the NAIA’s student leadership team that represents conferences all across the country – hosts a Unified experience. This year the ASA would like to invite local Special Olympics athletes to a Unified field day. The goal of national events like these are to create connections between NAIA student-athletes and local Special Olympics athletes that lead to NAIA student-athletes building connections with their local SO programs.

  • What activities? Yard games – cornhole, ladder ball, and many more
  • When? Friday, April 5 from 5-6pm
  • Where? Kirk Family YMCA outdoor soccer fields; 222 W 11th St, Kansas City, MO 64105 (Google Maps link here)
  • Parking info will come at a later date.
  • Register here! Registration will close at about 20 athletes. Register soon to secure a spot! Please sign up no later than Friday, March 29.
  • Questions? Please reach out to Lexxi O’Brien; Manager, University Engagement at Special Olympics North America – lobrien@specialolympics.org

This is a much-anticipated part of convention. The ASA greatly looks forward to an afternoon of fun with local SO athletes! Please reach out with any questions.
