Aim of the event: 
  • Promote mobility
  • Raise Awareness
Goal of the event: 
The aim was to make the Erasmus students know what the sport boccia is about, which are the rules and how ASPACE users play. It was an approach to sports that people with disabilities practise.
Short description of the event: 
We have gone to see ASPACE users playing boccia. They are people with cerebral palsy. Their coach explained all the rules of the game and showed us all the materials and how they are used according to the degree of disability. After that, the Erasmus students have participated with them as an auxiliary aid (moving their wheelchair when needed, for example), following the indications of the coach. Boccia is a precision ball sport related to bowls and pétanque. The sport is contested at local, national and international levels, by athletes with severe physical disabilities. It is present in the Paralympic games since the 1984 Paralympics.
