Junior Blind invites all students, grades 2-12, living in the Southern California area to participate in our Goalball Program.
Goalball is a team sport especially designed for athletes who are blind or visually impaired. The game is played by two teams of three players each, inside a gymnasium court divided into two halves by a center line. The purpose of the game is for each team to throw a ball across the opponent's goal line while the opponent tries to stop it. The ball has bells inside that can be heard as the ball moves. Junior Blind abides by goalball rules established by the International Blind Sports Association and referees are certified.
No experience necessary. All skill levels welcome.
