Boccia Battle Competition
Compete in a head to head boccia competition from your home, using the free Boccia Battle app. The competition will be individual play only. The app is compatible with Android and Apple phones or tablets. Practice your Boccia skills and strategies through the practice option and prepare for competition! You can select different shots to play your style of boccia. Those who aren’t able to operate the app independently are welcome to have a performance partner assist them. Players will be able to schedule games at their own convenience within the tournament dates. We’ll also show you how to record them on your device so that game videos can be posted online. Anyone can register including BC1, BC2, BC3, BC4, BC5, Open & Family/Friends. Check out the How-Tos for the competition which will be explained at the Technical Meeting as well

The Skill Challenge will run from November 26 – December 3rd. Videos can be submitted from Tuesday November 26th to Thursday, December 3rd at midnight EST. Participants can practice as much as they wish, but can only submit one video per challenge. The video must be shot all in one take and show all the balls for that challenge (i.e. if the challenge requires three throws, the video should include all three throws without edits). Videos will be reviewed and scored by National Team Coach, Simon Larouche. Winners will be announced during the Closing Ceremony. Find the Skill Challenges here.
