Paralympic Goalball Team @ BSU

Contributed by: Courtney Jarrett
Published: Monday, 20 March 2017 5:00 PM

Come join the Adaptive Sports Club as we welcome the Paralympic Goalball Team on Wednesday, March 22 at 7pm in RC 141!



Goalball is a sport exclusively for athletes with visual impairments. The object of the game is to roll the ball into the opposite goal while opposing players try to block the ball with their bodies. Bells inside the balls help orient the players, indicating the direction of the on-coming ball. Therefore, while play is in progress, complete silence is required in the venue to allow the players to instantly react to the ball. Learn more about the game at https://www.paralympic.org/goalball
