Boccia Day Time

18/10/2012

​Boccia is run in Townsville by the Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association and aims to provide a sporting or healthy activity opportunity for people with a disability. Six students: Clayton, Jeremiah, John, Conway, Darrien and Tiari started on Monday 8 October at the RSL Stadium and thoroughly enjoyed the variety of tasks and mini competitions on the day.

Closest to the pin was one of the popular activities where the students had to toss a ball and get it to stop near a pin set up in the middle of the room. Darrien was particularly good at this showing his ability to get the ball to stop closest to the pin each time he tried.

The students loved the activities and the opportunity to mix with other adults in the community with a disability. They are looking forward to the next session on 22 October.
