As a sport of skill and strategy, GB Boccia athletes require technical skill, tactical decision making along with control, flexibility, strength and power.

The GB Boccia Federation access EIS sport science and medical services predominantly from EIS Performance Centres in Sheffield and Bisham Abbey, at monthly performance and mini camps, along with regional support to suit athletes where they live.

Whether its detailed medical and physiotherapy services to support athletes’ individual performance and classification needs, or innovative projects seeing physiotherapy and performance analysis inform bespoke research and development for athlete braces to aid postural control and performance, EIS services have grown alongside the sport informing the Boccia Performance Pathway and technical coaching.
