2018 Philadelphia IUS Bocce Championship

The 2018 Philadelphia IUS Bocce Championship was held on Tuesday, January 23rd at Northeast High School. This year, Special Olympics PA – Philadelphia welcomed the most schools and teams to ever participate in the Bocce Championship – a total of 11 schools with 22 teams playing. 

After weeks of training and competing in two league-play days, schools arrived with hopes of advancing to Hershey, PA for the IUS State Bocce Championships on March 22nd and 23rd. Schools in attendance included Abraham Lincoln High School, High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, George Washington High School, Hill-Freedman High School, Kensington High School, Northeast High School, Parkway West High School, School of the Future, South Philadelphia High School, Strawberry Mansion, and Thomas Edison High School.

As schools arrived to Northeast High School, they were welcomed by Northeast High School’s band and mascot, the Viking. Northeast’s band stuck around for Opening Ceremonies to play the national anthem, while the Viking stuck around to root on Northeast and the other teams as the competed. During the competition, we saw play across all schools that has been the best it has ever been. 

We want to thank the Knights of Columbus for volunteering with us all season, including the championship and League 91 for volunteering and providing awesome volunteer shirts for our championship. A huge thank you to all of the teachers and staff from all of our schools who do work so incredibly hard with our athletes and partners in training and during games, and assisting with each of the trips to provide opportunities for inclusion. Thank you! 

Congratulations to Hill-Freedman Team 2 and George Washington Team 2 for advancing to Hershey!
