*** The Bocce program is full for Fall 2022. Registration is closed***

Bocce is an Italian game of skill and strategy. The basic principle of the sport is to roll a bocce ball closest to the target ball, which is called a pallina (the smallest ball). The sport allows athletes the opportunity to have social contact, develop physically and to gain self-confidence. Our bocce program has events for singles and doubles competition.

While less well known in the US, Bocce is a very fun game of skill, and is played all over Europe. Here locally, we play a Fall season, practicing in Burke Lake from August through the Fall State Games.

Coordinators:  Peter Flynn and Marques Lowery
