Boccia Canada Launches the Take the Shot Campaign – Tokyo Edition

With less than six months to go until the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, Boccia Canada launches the Take the Shot (Tokyo Edition) campaign to increase participation and awareness of boccia across Canada in the lead up to the Games. This year’s campaign is virtual and includes opportunities for schools, camps, etc. to receive downloadable activation kits and online presentations from boccia athlete ambassadors. The program will also include club grants for new boccia programs for regions where in-person programming is possible.

Athlete presentations will be available in both French and English. The downloadable activation kits will include activity sheets, a boccia colouring sheet, activities for Boccia at Home, and a call to action to help participants connect with boccia in their community.

The goal of the campaign is to encourage new participants to try boccia and develop new boccia fans to follow Team Canada in Tokyo.

Visit Boccia Canada’s Take the Shot (Tokyo Edition) for all information including the downloadable activation kit here.
