Boccia England

Schools

Overview

Boccia England recognise the role that schools play in the development of the future stars of our sport

This section is designed to inform you of the opportunities that your school might be able to access.

Competitions

In partnership with the Lord’s Taverners, Boccia England run a team based U19s competition which is split into two divisions – Physical Impairment and Pan Disability.

Schools take part in their county competition with the chance to progress and qualify for their Regional competition with an opportunity to advance to the National Final.

These competitions take place between October and April.

Skills Award

The Skills Award is a new initiative providing a physical activity opportunity for children and young adults (aged 12-18 with SEND) to overcome a range of barriers that they might face when trying to access sport outside of sport and the national curriculum.

Through a 10 week, structured, extracurricular club, the students will develop their own character traits which are vital in wider life and employment. The approach is based upon the Youth Sport Trust, My Personal Best resource which helps with understanding their own skills and capabilities, ensuring they reach their person best.

The life skills your pupils will be working on will be: Communication, Resilience, Responsibility, Evaluation and Innovation.
