Summary

Help inspire, engage and motivate a diverse mix of players at our Friday evening Boccia Club

Detailed description

We are looking for that special person to join us at the club and bring a new energy and enthusiasm to our club nights.


Could that be you?


All our players are keen to meet new people and love to chat alongside playing boccia. Some need a little extra motivation and encouragement to get the most out of the sessions, others need pushing and challenging to improve their game. We are looking for another key person to help drive and support the sessions, alongside our qualified coaches.


About Us:

Cotswold Crusaders Boccia Club meet at Leisure At Cheltenham on Fridays from 5pm to 7pm. Boccia is an inclusive sport similar to bowls or boules, which is played from a seated position making it ideal for wheelchair users. It is played internationally and at the Paralympics and many of our players are highly competitive. It can also be played socially and just for fun and our club also gives an opportunity for a sociable evening chatting over a game of boccia.


What we can offer you:

New skills, new friends, new sport - a lot of fun!

Satisfaction from seeing participants improve as players and grow and develop as individuals too

Pride in being part of a successful club and in seeing players win medals

Opportunity to train and qualify as a boccia coach and/or referee

Appreciation from all the players who enjoy the sessions


Sessions run nearly all year round with spring breaks for Gold Cup week and Good Friday, a summer break of around 4 weeks and a short break at Christmas.


We are very welcoming and anyone interested can arrange to come and have a chat and meet us without making any commitment. Feel free to ask any questions.


We look forward to hearing from you
