BOCCIA

 

The Alberta Cerebral Palsy Sports Association is currently running Boccia Programs in Edmonton. Boccia is a paralympic sport that involves throwing, kicking, or using a ramp with the help of an assistant to propel a soft leather ball towards a target. The possibility to use assistive equipment such as ramps and head pointers allows individuals with a wide range of disabilities to play. No experience is required and we provide all equipment.

Boccia is a strategic precision sport held in a fun, supportive environment to develop both physical and cognitive skills. There are opportunities to compete provincially, nationally and internationally. Requirements to compete at these levels can be found here or by clicking on the link to the left. Individuals of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate.

*Pre-registration for this program is recommended due to limited equipment. Register online by clicking the Register Now button on this page.

First time for NEW players is free to try.

Please email us at contact@acpsa.ca for more information.
