England Squad athletes Lee Maddison and James Clowes with their Sport assistants Chris Foster and Sara Rocha were invited to attend a training trip, host by FC Porto. Our athletes were supported by our England Pathway Coach Lauren Kianchehr. The training camp was an excellent opportunity for our Team to experience international travel and training abroad, whilst importantly also experiencing how other World Class nations train and compete.

The athletes competed in Individual, and Team based conditioned games throughout the weekend and took part in strength and conditioning sessions with FC Porto’s residential S&C coach. There was also an opportunity for Boccia England and FC Porto to share current pathway philosophies, sports science provisions in the pathway and talent identification process’s.


Reflecting on the trip our England Coach Lauren said

"We would like to thank FC Porto and all their team for hosting the event and making our athletes and staff feel so welcome over the weekend.
