Parents and other family members are encouraged to come and watch. During a goalball game, we need everyone to be very quiet. You can cheer when the referee calls a goal, but other than that, you will need to be quiet so that the players can hear the ball. If you bring young children, please keep them by you and don’t let them run around because the noise they make interferes with the players’ ability to track the ball. We LOVE having family and friends come and watch goalball!!!! We hope you can make it.
Volunteers: If you want to volunteer to help at this tournament, please email Jalayne and let her know what time you can help. We need goal judges who just stand by the sides and put the balls back in play. We need people who can come early and help set up chairs and goals, we need people who can stay later and help clean up. Please let Jalayne know what you can help with.
Check in Time: 8:30 a.m.
Play Begins at: 9:00 a.m.
Lunch: 11:30-12:30 Lunch will be provided to all players and volunteers.
Medal Rounds: The medal rounds will take place (depending on how many students sign up) around 2:00 for both divisions.
Ending by 3:30: The tournament will be over by 3:30. We can always use volunteers to help take down the chairs and clean up and would LOVE any and All help!!!! Thanks for letting your child participate in goalball. We love working with them!
This is the first team sport (and sometimes only) that many of these students have played. We want to keep it a positive atmosphere. We have different levels of playing ability. Everyone who has the skills will be allowed to play. Some teams will win, some will lose, but we want everyone to have a good time. It isn’t all about getting first or second place, it is about working hard to improve, being a team player, being a good sport, getting in better physical shape, and having fun.
