Bocce

Bocce is a game of skill and strategy. Athletes can participate in Unified Sports events. Unified Sports is a program that assigns Special Olympics Minnesota athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (Unified partners) to the same teams for training and competition.

In Unified bocce, a doubles team consists of one Special Olympics Minnesota athlete and one Unified partner; a traditional team consists of two athletes and two partners. As in all Special Olympics Minnesota sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
