Boccia Try It & Pizza Party (8-11 yrs & 12-21 yrs)

TVCC clients, 8 - 11yrs, will attend one group and youth clients/siblings,12 - 18 yrs old, will attend another.

What to Expect

TVCC clients are invited to come out and try Boccia!

Boccia is an indoor sport that is fully inclusive for everyone. Boccia is a precision ball sport, similar to outdoor bocce ball, that uses targeting, focus and accuracy. 

Clients with or without experience are welcome to come out to learn about the game, practice skills, and participate in boccia games with their peers. This Try-It workshop is open to children/youth with any type of special needs, and is easily adaptable for those with physical disabilities and who use mobility devices. We have different types of adaptive equipment to try out.

Our 1.5 hour of play and practice will be followed by a fun pizza party in the Youth Room! 

Through this program, children/youth will:

  • Meet and interact with other TVCC clients their age
  • Learn new physical activity skills and how to play Boccia Ball
  • Practice social and communication skills through turn taking, group activities, and peer connection

Participant Criteria:

  • TVCC children/youth ages 8-11 yrs and 12-21 yrs
  • Able to participate safely in a group; participants are welcome to have a support person present to assist them

This program is facilitated by TVCC's Horizons Youth Program and TVCC's Wellness Project.
