Applications for membership of BISFed are now open, and you are invited to apply using the link below. BISFed will have three classes of membership as follows:
- Full Members: National organisations recognised as having the responsibility for the sport of Boccia within their countries. Full Members must be active participants in international Boccia competition (or be actively working towards such competition.) Full Members are expected to maintain affiliation with their country’s National Paralympic Committee. Full members are eligible to host the major international Boccia competitions which are sanctioned by BISFed (Regional and World Championships.) Full Members have voting rights, and only one organisation per country may become a Full Member.
- Affiliate Members: National organisations responsible for developing the sport of Boccia where there is no organisation which meets the requirements to be a Full Member. In addition, where there are multiple organisations responsible for Boccia in a country, then those organisations which are not the Full Member for that country may become Affiliate Members. Affiliate Members are eligible to host national and international Boccia competitions which are sanctioned by BISFed.
- Associate Members: Organisations or individuals with an interest in promoting the sport of Boccia in their country. (Note that applications for Associate membership will be considered only in exceptional circumstances and only after all initial Full and Affiliate membership applications have been considered).
