IMG_5668Thirteen high schools participated in the SCC Unified Sports Soccer Tournament on October 16 at Amity Regional High School.

Amity, Branford, West Haven, Cheshire, Daniel Hand, East Haven, Foran, Guilford, Hamden, Hillhouse, Jonathan Law, North Haven, and Wilbur Cross participated.

Unified Sports provides an opportunity for students with special needs to participate in interscholastic athletics.

Former Amity Athletic Director Paul Mengold, who now works for the SCC, said the Unified Sports Program partners special needs students with non-disabled peers for team competitions. He added that the special needs athletes wore even numbers on their shirts.

Members of the Albertus Magnus College women’s soccer team volunteered their time to be officials at the event.

Amity High School Principal Charles Britton watched the games along with Supt. Charles Dumais and Athletic Director Earnie Goodwin.

“After an exciting afternoon of soccer, all the teams gathered in the cafeteria for a pizza party and awards presentation,” Britton said. “Our congratulations are extended to all the athletes on Amity’s Unified Sports team for their sportsmanship and hard work.”

IMG_0133Opinion, as I have said before I shoot photos of sports, but don’t take notes during the games and if the coaches don’t send a recap after the game, I have nothing to write about.

IMG_2039On Wednesday, Sept. 24, the front driveway of Amity High School was transformed into a festive information center during the lunch periods.

See all photos HERE.

It was a perfect day for the annual Club Day during which members from every student club and organization set up a display table and urged fellow students to join.

School Principal Charles Britton was out in the crowd checking out what everyone had to offer. He said he was impressed with their drive and commitment.

Associate Principal Jason Tracy seemed to be enjoying himself as much as the kids, visiting each table and just watching the students interact. 

“This is the one day that we turn it all over to the kids,” Tracy said. “It’s probably my favorite event of the year. It’s a great way for the kids to get together with others that they may not otherwise talk to.”

Tracy said he’s worked in other school districts, but Amity is hands down the best. “These kids are great,” he said.
