Switchbacks FC Unified Team
The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC and Special Olympics Colorado have partnered together to create the first ever Special Olympics Unified soccer team of the USL.
As the first of its kind in the USL Championship, the hope of the Switchbacks FC Unified Team is to be an example for other teams in the USL and encourage the development of other Unified Teams across the country. Their mission is to create opportunities for people with disabilities to be included in all sports.
