- Intramural Goal Ball
Goal ball is a team sport that was designed specifically for athletes with a vision impairment, but blindfolds allow sighted players to compete on an equal footing. Blindfolds will be provided at the event. Participants compete in teams of three, and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it into the opponents' goal. The ball is rolled by hand and never kicked. Using ear-hand coordination the game is played indoors, usually on a basketball court, and consist of twelve-minute halves. Teams alternate rolling the ball from one end of the playing area to the other, and players remain in the area of their own goal in both defence and attack. Players must use the sound of the bells to judge the position and movement of the ball. A goal is scored when the ball rolls past the defense across the baseline of a basketball court. Perimeters of play are marked by twine underneath gym floor tape, so players must use their sense of touch to judge their position on the court.
