Arrows Archery


- Arrows is a mini version of archery specifically designed for children in infant, primary and junior schools.


Arrows is also the format recommended for the School Games at a primary level in which schools compete against each other during the spring term.


New Age Kurling


- Kurling is a form of the original curling game, but adapted so it can be played indoors and on any smooth, flat surface, such as a sports hall. It is a fully inclusive game allowing people of all abilities to play and have fun. The objective of the game is to get as many stones closer to the centre of the target (a vinyl mat) than your opponent’s stones. New Age Kurling is an excellent target sport and can help children develop various skills such as their eye-hand-target coordination skills, self-esteem and self-confidence.



- Boccia is contested in individual competitions or between teams of two or three. The aim of the game is to get one of your balls closer to the jack than any of your opponent’s balls. There are also many modified versions of this game.


A game is divided into ‘ends’, with the overall winner of the match the first player to win a predetermined number of ends. Each player or team gets six attempts/balls to get closest to the jack and the winner takes that end. There are usually more ends for games involving more players.


Players are allowed to move their balls with either their hands or feet, whilst they are also permitted to use a supportive ramp should their disability be extremely severe.
