Bocce Head Coach, Lyn Ryan, says Special Olympics New Zealand has taken her to places she would never have thought possible.
While looking for a sport for her daughter to compete in, Lyn was introduced to Special Olympics 30 years ago and got involved firstly in aquatics and then later on in the sport of bocce. It was a sport her husband was developing and, so, “it was a natural progression”.
Lyn is also the bocce Coach for Special Olympics Manawatu and her focus is to encourage people to simply have a go and to have fun while doing so.
The opportunity it gives for growth and celebration not only for the athletes, but also for their parents, families, volunteers and the community as a whole.
