Extractions: 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
Extractions: The game was introduced to the world in 1976 at the Paralympics in Toronto, Canada and has been played at every Paralympic since. As well every four years a World Competitions has been held with the first being in Austria in 1978. Since that time the popularity of goalball has increased to where it is played competitively in all IBSA regions.

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.

Goalball--The Great Equalizer Future Reflections Special Issue Sports, Fitness, and Blindness goalballThe Great Equalizer. by Vasantha Ayilavarapu http://www.nfb.org/images/nfb/Publications/fr/fr26/Issue2/fr07sum19.htm
Extractions: Future Reflections Special Issue: Sports, Fitness, and Blindness back contents next 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.

SportsVision - Goalball Enabling individuals who are blind or visually impaired to participate in competitive sports and leisure activities http://www.mysportsvision.org/adaptive/goalball.htm
Extractions: 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. HISTORY 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. DESCRIPTION OF THE GAME 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 menâ€™s and women's play. The entire end line (9 meters in width - approximately 30 feet) is the goal area.
