Goalball is the most popular team sport for blind and low vision athletes in the world. It is played competitively in 112 countries and a part of the Paralympic Games.
Goalball is a team sport designed specifically for athletes with a vision impairment. Participants compete in teams of three, and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it into the opponents’ goal. The ball is thrown by hand and never kicked. The defensive team will dive to block the thrown ball with their bodies. All players are blindfolded regardless of their level of vision impairment.
MindsEye is will be holding camps, demonstrations, and tryouts to field a competitive team to compete nationally in 2023.
