Boccia Battle Competition
Participants competed in a head to head boccia competition from their home, using the free Boccia Battle app. The competition was in individual play only. The app is compatible with Android and Apple phones or tablets. Those who weren’t able to operate the app independently were welcome to have a performance partner assist them. Players scheduled games at their own convenience within the tournament dates. Anyone could register including BC1, BC2, BC3, BC4, BC5, Open & Family/Friends. The How-Tos were consulted throughout the competition and explained at the Technical Meeting as well.
Technical package can be found here.
The Skill Challenge ran from November 26 – December 3rd. Videos were reviewed and scored by National Team Coach, Simon Larouche. Winners were announced during the Closing Ceremony. Find the Skill Challenges here.
