Do you have a special needs family member? Are you looking for help or a night out? The ICHA bocce program might be something for you to consider.
My name is Valerie Tessier, I have been overseeing the Bocce program for 10 years. We have grown from 10 to 60 athletes per night. We promote exercise through games like king’s court, and enhance social abilities through dancing. We have friendly, helpful volunteers and athletes of all abilities.
The bocce program runs from 6 to 7 p.m. every Monday night at the Novelletto Rosati Complex. The dancing portion follows and continues to 8 p.m. We have been training some of the competitive athletes for out of town competition. Each year in January, we attend a bocce tournament hosted by the Fogolar Furlan Club. Our door is always open. Come and check us out.
