Wow, B4E. I haven't seen anyone use those red utility balls for years....

They make a ball called a Gator Ball, which is foam, with a soft rubber coating. It throws well, and it doesn't hurt.

My experience, is most kids love dodgeball, especially with the Gator Ball. Most hate it when those harder balls are used (especially if you have some goon with a strong throwing arm).

in dodgeball. The reason it can be a good game, every one is included, everyone moves. When you are hit, you can come back in if a teammate catches a ball. You can learn to take a risk by throwing at someone or trying to catch it.

If done correctly by the teacher, it can be a lot of fun, inclusive, action packed, with teamwork, be non stop and safe.

Send your grand daughter's teacher to me. I'll show that teacher how to do it properly. 😎
