Smack the Jack. Boccia is a real test of skill. It's a ball-tossing game that demands extreme precision and strategy too. Unique to boccia is that it is co-ed. Men and women play on the court together and against each other. Boccia is a sport that can be played by competitors who have severe disabilities: cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy for example. Players can throw, bowl, kick, or use a chute to propel the little leather ball onto the court.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
