ACTIVE WITH BOCCIA SESSIONS
Weekly boccia for children with disabilities
As part of our commitment to creating opportunities for children to lead active lives, we are supporting a programme of multi-sports for children and young people with disabilities in North Tyneside by funding weekly boccia training and games.
Boccia is a disability sport that tests muscle control and accuracy. Players propel balls to land close to a target ball, and can compete in two sides as individuals, pairs or teams.
We awarded a grant of £960 to North Tyneside Disability Forum to deliver weekly boccia sessions.
