Learn to Boccia

Boccia (pron.: /boch-ə) is a precision ball sport, related to bowling. The sport is contested at local, national and international levels, by athletes with severe physical disabilities. In 1984, it became a Paralympic sport, and is now played in more than 50 countries worldwide.

This Fall, we will be offering a weekly Boccia game at Northwood Terrace, on Wednesday afternoons, starting on September 19th. If you’re curious about learning more, or giving boccia a try, please contact Sam Parsons at 902.453.6000 ext. 230 or email samparsons@easterseals.ns.ca
