-Make sports more accessible-The 4th Nagano Prefectural Parasports Tournament will be held on Saturday, October 22nd! Let’s enjoy para sports together!
Would you like to share “time”, “place” and “experience” with para sports?
NPO D-SHiPS32 will hold the prefectural parasports tournament, which is being rolled out nationwide, for the 4th time in Nagano Prefecture. When people hear the word “sports for the disabled” (para sports), many people have a stereotyped notion that it is a sport that only disabled people can do. It is a sport that you can enjoy. Why don’t you share “time”, “place” and “experience” through such para sports? D-SHiPS32 believes that sharing “experiences” is necessary for a symbiotic society.
■The event will be Boccia!
Boccia was an official event at the Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. From small children to the elderly, it is a sport that even beginners can enjoy immediately. Let’s share “experience” in boccia! Sponsor: You can see various activities conducted by NPO D-SHiPS32 and past competitions from the following page.
