Today started out fun and exciting. The children learned about goalball for their blindness lesson. They had a blast learning the rules of the game. Goalball is a game which requires three people to defend one side of a court, while another team of three players defends the other. In order to score a goal, the ball must pass between the players of the opposite side of the court without being blocked. The ball must touch the outer line of the court to indicate that it is a goal. The students had fun listening for the ball in order to block it.
