BFA Fairfax Unified Sports is proud of its school-based team of elementary students with and without disabilities. These 3-5 graders train together throughout January and February. In early March, the team ends the season in a competitive event with other schools at the Unified Champion Schools Snowshoeing Competition.

BFA Fairfax Unified Snowshoe Team offers a great opportunity for students to work hard together, be accepting of everyone’s different abilities, and have fun! Students can be a part of the team at no cost. The funding to support this program is raised through school and community participation in the annual Penguin Plunge in Burlington.
