Created for athletes who are blind or visually impaired, goalball requires rigor and skill. It is played on a court slightly smaller than a basketball court, and all of the players wear blindfolds so that no one will have a visual advantage. The players hurl a ball with a bell in it along the court floor as they attempt to roll it toward the other team's baseline and score a goal.
Our goalball teams compete with other schools for the blind in the United States Association for Blind Athletes and Eastern Athletic Association for the Blind tournaments.
