Special Olympics floorball is a modified version of the regular sport. The games are played 3v3 (with goalies) on a smaller 20m x 12m court, 5v5 with goalies on a standard size floorball court, and 4v4 with goalies as Unified on a 30m x 15m court.

Special Olympics Arizona is one of the leaders in the development of floorball here in the United States. They have been actively pursuing the transition from floor hockey to floorball since 2016 and have produced a guide for floorball as a unified sport. For the latest, visit Floorball at Special Olympics Arizona.

Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) is also leading the charge. They sponsored the first Unified Floorball Tournament in San Antonio in February 2020 to select a team to represent the United States at the next World Games. Following the 1-1/2 year pause in organized activities due to Covid, SOTX is back introducing floorball with a vengeance. They make floorball equipment sets available to Texas programs who join the floorball movement. They sponsored several training events for coaches and program directors in late 2021 and early 2022 and included Floorball as an official event at the SOTX 2022 Winter Games in Bee Cave, TX.
