The Para Bowls Long Term Development (LTD) Framework
The Para Bowls development framework aims to enable the optimal participation in the sport of bowls for every child, youth, and adult with any type of sensory, intellectual, and/or physical impairment.
“Para sport” and “para bowls” is a term used to describe sport that is primarily aimed at persons with diverse abilities and comes from the idea that it is parallel to sport for able bodied participants and players as the sport has adapted equipment or rules to make the game fun and accessible for everyone.
Bowls Canada Boulingrin (BCB) chooses to use the term “para bowls” to describe the sport and “para bowler” to describe the player for ease of language and to streamline communication with other nations who are collaboratively developing the sport of bowls for persons with diverse abilities.
