Dodgeball is fun, but sometimes my teens throw too hard or too aggressively. I think it’s the Wheaties. Dodgeball is no fun if someone gets hurt, so if we want to play, we need some adjustments.
One of the adjustments we use often is we play with yoga exercise balls. It adds a whole new dimension to the game and slows the pace of the game so that everyone can feel comfortable playing! The balls are hard to throw too hard, and difficult to catch, so game play goes on and on. I suggest that you play in a large area, for added safety and excitement. This game is best played in a gym setting, though you can play outside, too.
