Bocce is new to Special Olympics Canada and is a pilot program only played at the local level. There are no competitions provincially or nationally at this time.
Bocce is a game of skill and strategy. The object is for one team to get as many of their balls (boccia) closer to the pallina (the smallest ball) than the opposing team’s closest ball.
As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
- Singles (one player per team)
- Doubles (two players per team)
- Team Competition (four players per team)
