Introduction Who can play? Rules FAQ ... Contact us Introduction
Goal ball is a highly competitive sport played three-against-three, indoors on a gym floorprimarily by blind and visually impaired athletes.
Games are usually quite competitive and exciting to watch. Two teams play on either end of the 60x40 foot court. Players are blindfolded to make the game fair. The object is to throw a three-pound Goal ball, which is sort of like a heavy basketball, past the opposing team.
Now you may be asking yourself, "how do the players keep track of the ball if they're blind?" The ball has bells in it... sounding a lot like Christmas "jingle bells..." that allow the players to listen for it. When they hear the ball coming towards their end of the court, they dive, usually head-first, towards it hoping to block it with their body and stop it. If all three players miss the ball and it goes past the back line, it is considered a goal. The team with the most goals wins the game. History
Goal ball was invented in 1946 by Austrian, Hanz Lorenzen, and German Sepp Reindle, in an effort to help in the rehabilitation of blinded war veterans.

It was devised by Hanz Lorenzen (Austria), and Sepp Reindle (Germany), in 1946 in an effort to help in the rehabilitation of visually impaired World War II veterans . The International Blind Sports Federation ( IBSA ), responsible for fifteen sports for the blind and partially sighted in total, is the governing body for this sport. The sport evolved into a competitive game over the next few decades and was a demonstration event at the 1976 Summer Paralympics in Montreal . The sport's first world championship was held in Austria in 1978 and goalball became a full part of the Paralympics from the 1980 Summer Paralympics in Arnhem onwards Participants compete in teams of three, and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it into the opponents' goal . They must use the sound of the bell to judge the position and movement of the ball. Games consist of two 10 minute halves Blindfolds allow partially sighted players to compete on an equal footing with blind players

International Blind Sports Federation rules require the field of play to be 18m long by 9m wide (about 19.7 yards by 9.8 yards).

GoalballThe Great Equalizer
by Vasantha Ayilavarapu Editor’s Note: When we think of inclusion of blind students in sports, we usually think of adapting games that have evolved for players with perfect vision. Here is Mrs. Ayilavarapu to describe a different approach to sports and inclusion: As a resource teacher of blind and visually impaired students in a school-based program at Federal Hill Preparatory School, a Baltimore City public K-8 school, I am constantly facing the challenge of facilitating inclusion and promoting acceptance of my blind students as equals in all areas by their sighted peers. At that sensitive age, nothing works better than sports in creating opportunities for interaction. All children love sports and relish the challenge of “fighting it out” on a sporting field. In my quest for sporting activities appropriate for my students and their sighted peers, I discovered goalball, thanks to the ever-innovative National Federation of the Blind and a local nonprofit organization, Common Senses. As those of us who work with blind students know, goalball is played with a special ball that is about the size of a basketball with a similar texture and bells inside to provide sound clues. The lines on the playing area are tactual. Whenever one player needs to pass the ball to another, he calls to the player and the other player taps the floor to let him/her locate the position of the receiving player. When turning this into an inclusive game, both blind and sighted students wear blindfolds (sleepshades) and use sound and tactile cues to play the game. Any player who needs to leave the playing area is escorted off the court using sighted guide techniques, since the players are not allowed to take their blindfolds off on the court.

By Dian Heil (The following information was taken from the book Goalball, by Eugenia Kriebel and Joe R. Dominquez and an article written by Stephen Kearney and Rosanna Copeland.) Because of the recent mainstreaming of visually impaired children into the public schools, physical educators are constantly looking for new ways to involve these children in their classes on an equal basis with the other children. Goalball places the visually impaired child on equal terms and gives them the chance to be "part of the group." The game takes little equipment and helps all children with tracking, spatial awareness, orientation, coordination, and teamwork.
Goalball was developed following World War II as a rehabilitative activity for newly blinded veterans. Several European countries claimed its origin...Belgium, Austria, and Germany. The European countries have been involved with the game since the mid 1940's. The game was designed specifically for the blind to help them gain skills necessary to a newly visually impaired person.
The game can briefly be described as an indoor court game for the visually impaired. It is played on an indoor court about the size of a volleyball court. The actual court measures eighteen (18) meters by nine (9) meters for both men’s and women's play. The entire end line (9 meters in width - approximately 30 feet) is the goal area.

World War II veterans created goalball as a sport for the blind and visually impaired. The game has no direct antecedent-it is an original sport. Goalball is played avidly in Germany, France, Denmark, and England, to name just a few of the 104 countries that now nourish the sport.
