We organised this activity so that we promote the benefits of physical exercise due to the health and wellbeing week as well as to sensitivize and inform the students about disabilities and how paralympic games are conducted.
Hello Erasmus Athlete's lovers 🏐♥️
As you already know this week is dedicated to well and health being🧬
So are you ready to play volleyball without moving your feet? 🏐
Are you good at strategies games? Because boccia game is here to stay 😍
Or do you think it's easy for you to hear a ball coming to you when you have your eyes closed ?🤔
->⚾Sitting volleyball: As its name implies, it is pretty close to volleyball but played from seated positions. At all times, the athlete’s pelvis must be in contact with the ground, and service blocks and attacks are allowed.
->⚾Goalball: It is played exclusively by athletes who are blind or visually impaired. Teams are made up of six players, with three members playing at any one time. The object of the game is to throw a ball past the opponents and into their net to score points. Players stay on their hands and knees to defend their net and score against their opponents.
->⚾Boccia: It is a game of strategy and accuracy that was originally designed to be played by people with cerebral palsy. The sport is played on a flat, smooth surface, where players must throw or roll coloured balls as close as possible to a white target ball, known as the “jack.” The player, pair or team with the most balls near the jack is the winner.

We also managed to spread awareness about disabilities successfully
