Boccia CCA

Boccia is a target sport. The aim of this Niche CCA is for students to throw, roll or kick the ball as close as possible to a white target ball (the jack).

The game can be played either individually, in pairs or as a team of three. It requires a high degree of muscle control, accuracy, concentration and tactical awareness from the Niche CCA participants.

Boccia is a suitable Niche CCA for our students with cerebral palsy and those who have severe physical disability or neurological conditions such as muscular dystrophy, spinal bifida. Boccia can be played both recreationally and competitively.

Students in the Boccia CCA are formally classified according to their conditions before any competition. Athletes with similar conditions and abilities will be classified into the same class.

The table below shows a brief description of the four classifications:
