Boccia Program
At the Adult Activity Center
Demographics: Tweens - Seniors, families, people with and without disabilities

Adult Services and PLAY for All are joining forces to bring an all-new, all ages, all abilities, family friendly program to the Adult Activity Center. Boccia is a unique sport that was specifically designed to create competitive equity between players with and without impairments that affect motor skills. Players on opposing teams score points by propelling colored balls closest to a target ball on a long, narrow, indoor playing court. In Boccia, all participants play seated, whether in a wheelchair or not. Balls can be propelled by throwing, kicking, or utilizing a ramp — making the game an extremely adaptable sport for players of all ability levels. 

This program will provide participants with everything needed to start playing Boccia, including rules, drills, strategies, and all equipment (balls, chairs, and ramps). No experience needed. 

Thursdays
6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

No registration is required.
