In partnership with South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture, I have been going into schools in the South Lanarkshire area to promote a new Boccia Club which is taking place at the Ally McCoist sports centre in East Kilbride on a Monday from 4:30pm – 6:00pm.
I have been delivering Boccia taster sessions in the schools to show the pupils what Boccia is and to promote the new club. The sessions consist of fun games that can introduce new players and young kids to Boccia. Within the session the young people also get the opportunity to play a full game of boccia and learn the rules of the sport.
It’s good to see the pupils engaging in the sport and I hope to see them at the Ally McCoist sports centre for the new Boccia club on a Monday night. The teachers also got really into it and showed their competitive sides (but I hope we don’t see them at the club).
I am really looking forward to the new club starting and we are hoping to have Scottish Boccia Squad player and Paralympian, Peter McGuire, leading the sessions in the near future.
