We are proud to be working in partnership with AoC Sport - the membership organisation for colleges, leading the development of sport and physical activity in 16+ education.


From this partnership, AoC Sport has engaged 152 students in Boccia competitions and upskilled 19 students through the Boccia Skills Award. Boccia England has supplied officials for competitions to ensure the events ran smoothly – thanks to our amazing volunteer workforce.


Boccia England has provided 20 colleges with a Boccia Skills Award package to help students gain an understanding of their own skills and personal capabilities ensuring they reach their personal best. The package included a staff resource pack, session plans and equipment pack. Our thanks go to BBC Children in Need and The Masonic Charitable Foundation for supporting this work.


Boccia England Head of Development, Kate Moss, said: “Our aim is to improve the physical and emotional wellbeing of disabled people through boccia and we want more young people to have the opportunity to play and compete in the sport. The work we are doing in partnership will help to introduce more young people to the sport, develop key life skills through programmes such as our skills Award, and encourage ongoing participation through competitive opportunities available within colleges, and hopefully beyond within community clubs. We look forward to continuing to develop our partnership with AoC and colleges.”
