Version 3 has now been finalised by the BISFed Rules Committee. All changes have been clearly marked in red to ensure the changes can be identified quickly.
After announcing our new competition rules at the end of January we have now received our first translation curtesy of Andrea Zamora and Teresa Calverol. The pair have provided the Spanish translation and are currently working on a Catalan translation too. All translations will be added to the ‘Rules’ section of the website.
The BISFed Rules Committee is pleased to publish the updated BISFed International Boccia Rules (2017 v1) for immediate use. Following wide consultation with Members during 2016, the Committee has undertaken an extensive review of the Rules.
The BISFed Classification rules have been updated by the BISFed Classification Committee. The new rules will take effect from the first event of 2017. Members with comments should email them to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 27th January.
The rules committee has been working long and hard sifting through the proposals and responses from our members. We specifically considered FAIRNESS and EQUALITY when making these decisions.
After many hours and much debating we have our first draft of the 12th edition ready to present to you. These rule changes were proposed and accepted from survey results. In page 3 of the Rule book you will notice that we ask for your observances throughout 2017.
Time is running out to make your comments regarding the rule change proposals. I have inserted comments in some of the threads on Facebook to generate more feedback. To make Boccia be the best it can be for all our athletes, it is important that we understand your thoughts. As you make any comments keep in mind fair play for everyone!
The final requests have now been posted on Facebook. We’re delighted with the feedback that we have received and want to thank everyone that has taken part. It isn’t too late to have your say! We’re giving the boccia community until the end of October to submit feedback.
We are half way through the rule change requests that have been sent through to our rules committee. We are delighted with the feedback that we have had so far and want everyone to feel that they can contribute towards our rule improvements. To help you with this we will post each request separately. With 5 more days of requests to go we want to urge you to join the debate on our Facebook page!
Today the requests look at alterations to penalty balls. Take a look, remember to follow the instructions on the attached document to ensure your opinions are heard by the committee! Better still, follow BISFed on Facebook and join the debate!
