Wheelchair Bowls (Boccia) Coach  with Cotswold Crusaders Boccia Club (Ref: 1037)
 
Opportunity picture
Boccia is a form of wheelchair bowls which was introduced to the Olympics in 2012.

They aim to introduce Boccia to physically, mentally and socially less advantaged children around the Gloucestershire area, to give them a purpose, a bit of a social life and something to look forward to each week! It is an ideal fun activity for children and young people under 25. The group is 5 or 6 people at moment, but hoping to grow.

After a move from Gloucester to Cheltenham, the group needs new volunteers.

The role will entail helping the Boccia coach, or even training to be a coach, marking out the pitch, collecting balls, refereeing and assisting the players.
What are they looking for?

No particular skills or qualifications are needed as training can be given.

They are due to set up a Boccia Leaders course in June, and if anyone would be interested in coaching the group a funded place will be available.

Practical

Over 18's preferred.

DBS check is ideal, but not essential. An informal discussion will be followed by an interview and references will be required.

Volunteers needed from 3.45pm to 6.15pm on Wednesday evenings.

When: Wednesday evening,
Age requirements: 18-25 only
Where?

Leisure at Cheltenham, Tommy Taylors Lane, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL50 4RN
