Course Description

The Boccia Leaders Award provides learners with the fundamental skills and knowledge required to introduce and deliver boccia within the community. Learners will gain an understanding of both officiating and coaching boccia, including an overview of the rules of Boccia, adapting and designing boccia activities, leadership, plus disability awareness and classification.

Who is the course for?

This is an introductory level course and is therefore suitable for individuals with little or no prior knowledge of boccia. It is also ideal for those volunteering at boccia clubs who are looking to refresh and confirm their knowledge. The course is suitable for school students, teachers, community workers, leaders and players.

What is the value of this course?

Boccia is an inclusive, tactical and exciting sport which can be adapted to suit any audience or community setting. Learners will gain leadership skills and knowledge of how to adapt activities to make them inclusive.
