What: Boccia Ball is a fully accessible adaptive sport designed for people with physical disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, stroke, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, or spinal cord injuries. The recreational program is open to anyone with any kind of disability looking to get involved in a fun sport. Boccia is played indoors on a hard surface. Participants can play however they need to by using hands, feet, or a ramp with an assistant to get the balls propelled onto the court. Individuals, teams, or pairs take turns throwing red and blue leather balls to try to get them close to the white “jack” target ball. Boccia is full of precision and strategy. No experience or special equipment is necessary to play. The program is run by Recreational Therapist Fiona Allen. We won’t have class on March 14.

Hiking with a disability can take more planning before hitting the trail. Is the trail paved? Are there any steep hills? Is there accessible parking? Avocation Therapy uses AllTrails to help our clients get outside. AllTrails has over 4,000 trails with accessibility information. It helps us plan a successful trip and focus on the therapeutic benefits of nature.
