What is Boccia?
Boccia is an attack and defend game, with two sides competing over a set number of ends. The aim is to score as many points as possible by placing their set of coloured balls closest to the white jack ball. All players must be seated during a game. A game consists of a series of ends.
Boccia Competition 2017
Today, Louise and I took 6 children from Virginia to compete in the annual Boccia competition!
This is our second time competing, so we were quite nervous but excited for the day!
After listening carefully to the rules we had lots of fun playing all the different rounds. Some of team members were very new to the game but soon felt at ease after Zain yr6 gave them very clear and inspiring advice!
We then had to split into two teams and each team won at least one game. Well done to you all!
We would all like to thank Abdal from THYSF for giving us this opportunity! We cannot wait to get more involved in this brilliant sport and look forward to next year!
A very special mention to Kareem for being resilient and positive!
