Boccia starts of the future being sought at Norfolk School Games

Aiming to find the Paralympic stars of the future, the Playground to Podium programme at the Norfolk School Games targeted talented young athletes and offered pathways for future training.

Yesterday’s events saw youngsters tackle cricket, goal ball and boccia – learning new skills and competing to win.

Ellen Vanlint, sports development officer, said: “It’s been good for them to test their abilities against others, and see what opportunities there are with different clubs.

“We hope to continue to improve next year and develop into the partnership teams – where both disabled and mainstream athletes compete for their partnerships.”
