Goalball is a fully inclusive, fun Paralympic sport where visually and non- visually impaired students can train and compete equally. It can help develop communication, teamwork and leadership skills for young people. It also helps develop key physical skills including co-ordination, balance, speed and agility.
Sitting volleyball has grown to be one of the more popular Paralympic sports due to the fast and exciting action. At club level, the game offers both disabled and non-disabled players the opportunity to compete both with and against each other.
Sitting Volleyball Simple Rules:
- Volleyball rules will apply plus the rules below added;
- Modified court, played on a badminton court with a mini tennis net.
- Compared to Standing Volleyball it is permitted to block an opponent’s service.
- Throughout the game, the players who are involved in a defensive effort must have contact with the ground with some part of the body between the pelvis and the shoulders. In certain cases of defensive action at the back end of the court, for example while “saving the ball”, the players are allowed to lose contact with the ground for a short time. But they are not allowed to stand up, lift up their body or take steps.
Students will take part in activities linked to goalball. They will also have the opportunity to take part in Sitting Volleyball activities
