PACE receives the Jack Petchey Crystal Award

Published March 18, 2016

PACE are delighted to announce that it has been given a £1,500 award by the Jack Petchey Foundation in recognition of its amazing work with young people.

The Crystal Award marks the 15th anniversary of the Jack Petchey Foundation and PACE was one of 150 organisations to receive this Award.

The Crystal Award will be used to extend PACE delivery further into the community, giving more young people an opportunity to experience a paralympic sport.

This Award is being used to deliver boccia sessions to a group of young people from Acton College who are predominantly on the autistic spectrum.

The project will enable participants to develop problem solving, logic and strategic thinking skills in a fun and structured environment.

In addition, they will learn the basic rules and tactics of the game. A mini-tournament will be held towards the end of the project, giving participants as opportunity to experience a competitive edge to the game.

As well as the sessions, one of the PACE athletes will be given an opportunity to complete the UKCC Level 1 Boccia Coaching course.
