Unified sports court ready for some action

By Kyler Bolomey - Staff Reporter



The Unified Sports teams have helped create a new safe community and student space where the old Highline tennis courts were.

This new space has two new soccer courts, sand volleyball courts, and will also be the space for the new green house for the Urban Agriculture program.

The end goal for the construction on this area is for it to become a park that will help engage the community and make the campus more appealing.

The Unified program's mission is to "help contribute to make the campus a better place," said Fawzi Belal, the Outreach Services assistant director who is also the Unified Sports director.

Over the summer, Belal created an event called "Soccer Friday" where students and kids aged 6 to 18 years old came to play at the new soccer courts every Friday. This event was designed to encourage play and help build a healthy community.

They started each session with information on promoting education, learning life lessons through sports, and living a healthy lifestyle.
The entire cost of this project was $2,000, which was sponsored by the Highline College Foundation.

These new facilities are 100 percent free for students and the com- munity to use. The goal is for it to be a safe area for students and the community, said Belal.

Students can get involved with the Unified Sports program by joining any Unified Sports classes, or by contacting Fawzi Belal at f belal@highline.edu.
