PACE develops satellite boccia club at John Chilton School

Published January 22, 2016

Following the success of our athletes at PACE Boccia, the strengthening of our coaching workforce and the increasing demand for inclusive and accessible sporting activities, PACE have been successfully awarded funding from Interactive to develop a “Satellite Club” at the John Chilton School, in Northolt.

The project consists of 20 weeks of funded boccia coaching, to provide students with the opportunity to take part in structured and progressive sessions, where they can learn some of the basic boccia tactics and techniques.

Appropriate athletes who are committed and want to continue their involvement will be invited to attend the satellite club after the initial 20 weeks of boccia delivery. The club will be sustainably managed with small charges introduced which will also be subsidised by PACE.

The satellite club will provide opportunities for athletes to compete in the schools league, as well as the national league. Athletes who receive classifications will also be eligible for competition at regional and national level, should they qualify.

PACE hopes that by working in partnership with the John Chilton School, we can develop a successful boccia club that can provide a platform for newer athletes to compete, develop their skill and fulfil their potential.
