Region I Bocce Clinic

Region I is hosting a bocce clinic open to Region I coaches and athletes to educate teams on the game of bocce. Attendees must have either a valid Class A or valid Medical on file to participate.  The clinic will cover rules, strategy, practice tips as well as playing a bocce match.

This event is recreational only. There are no player vs player options.

10am – 12:00pm – 1st shift

1pm – 3:00pm – 2nd shift

  • Each shift has a limit of 30 registrations.  Once the 30 registration limit has been reached for shift 1, additional registrants will be assigned to shift 2.
  • Registration times are 10am and 1pm.
  • Courts will be assigned after registration is complete

Lunch will not be provided.

Bathrooms are available in the pavilion next to the Bocce courts.  They are not handicap accessible.

Parking is located along the side of the road, next to the park.

Masks must be worn at all times where social distancing is not possible.  Since bocce is not a physically demanding sport, we encourage them to be worn at all times during this event. Special Olympics will not be providing masks so it is up the agency and athletes to bring their own.  For safety reasons Special Olympics will not have water on site so it is the agencies’ responsibility to inform athletes to bring their own water and bottle.

To make sure we abide by the 50 person maximum set by the IDPH, parents and spectators are unfortunately not allowed to attend and only registered athletes and coaches are allowed at the event.

Special Olympics Illinois is committed to providing the best athlete, volunteer, coach and supporter environment possible. While we are excited to resume in-person events, the health and well-being of our constituents remains our top priority. All of our in-person events follow the COVID-19 recommended IDPH and CDC guidelines.
