Virtually Boccia Challenge

This is a series of skill-based challenges, with each student completing the challenge, contributing to their school or college score. If you do not have boccia equipment, then don’t panic. The activities can be completed using other PE or home equipment (i.e. tennis balls, bean bags, socks).

Following the success to date, plans are in place for a new edition of Virtually Boccia to launch on Friday 10th September, following the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.

There has been a slight change to the format from the first edition, with activities being circulated weekly to the schools and colleges that have signed up and the results being submitted via an online submission. The activities, demonstration videos and results links will be displayed below on this page.

The first round of activities will be released on Monday 4th October with a new activity being uploaded weekly and the final activities being released on Monday 29th November.

If you do not have boccia equipment, then don’t panic, the activities can be completed using other PE or home equipment (i.e. tennis balls, bean bags, socks).

The Virtually Boccia Challenges are free for schools and colleges to access. We are very grateful to the Boost Charitable Trust for their support of this programme. 

You can sign up from the Friday 10th September. Please note you will not receive an automated email confirmation upon sign up.
