Bocce is an Italian game. The basic principle of the sport is to roll a bocce ball closest to the target ball, which is called a palina. Bocce as a Special Olympics sport provides people with special needs the opportunity to have social contact, develop physically and to gain self-confidence. Next to soccer and golf, bocce is the third most participated sport in the world.

Announcements (2020):

Bocce practices will not begin until AFTER basket ball season is finished. We will have our FIRST practice along with a meeting for parents/guardians on March 21st, at 10:00. At this time we are planning on meeting in the park, where we practiced last year. For anyone new, that is back near the pool & Playhouse in the Park. We’ll keep you updated. Looking forward to starting the season with all of you!
