About the Boccia Coaching Resource
Our coaching resource is designed to help program facilitators, athletes, and parents deliver Boccia in a fun and social environment. The cards are simple to use and can help enhance your Physical Literacy program within your school, club, or community centre. The games and practices of this coaching resource can all be adapted to suit the needs of participants, and each card details how to do this.
Boccia is a target sport and a game of strategy, which can be played by everyone. It requires minimal space and minimal equipment. It is an excellent game to guarantee inclusion and develop physical literacy skills for everyone, regardless of their abilities.
For more information on how you can get involved in Boccia as an athlete, coach, or programmer, visit our Boccia program page. Boccia in BC is open to all ages, abilities, and skill levels. Weekly programs are offered throughout the province.
Interested in bringing boccia to students, clients, participants, children, or athletes? SportAbility offers opportunities to try a sport. Groups such as schools, clinics, and teams can try boccia. We also offer community events! Check out our Community Engagement page for more information.
In our high school setting I have used the Boccia card set regularly. It is an ongoing game we play in PE with all students and especially outdoors when mobility on grass is not for all learners; some need a game that is more controlled and less ground coverage. For any of my students with disabilities, Boccia is often the second game we choose as a class when outdoors. We play indoors but use Boccia skills embedded into other games to mix it up and challenge our skill development.
The cards are excellent; well laid out and functional for learning. When groups of students gather to play I can give a variety of cards/games out and the curiosity is built when one group sees another playing a different skill developing game.
As well, I am the Surrey School District Adapted PE Specialist so in my after school programs and when I am in other teacher’s PE classes, these cards are quick visuals that are clear, concise and readily usable. I can speak to SportAbility and their programming with this handy resource as the jumping off point. All teachers appreciate learning materials that are easy to use and can be understood.
I use it with my WheelKids program as well as in our afterschool programs and camps. These are the key things that make this booklet a fabulous resource: It’s easy to use, and the instructions are very clear. The resource has fun games and activities to lead up to the game of Boccia, and there is a great variety of activities.
