Gaga Ball Addition Brings Added Fun to Plaza Time

Jay Waldvogel

Looking for something to do? Next to the portables, a new gaga ball pit has just recently been installed and is open to use when wanted. It’s a popular game that has been sweeping schools across the nation. For those of you who don’t know what gaga ball is or how to play, just keep reading.

It’s a game that takes place in what is called a gaga pit. It’s a wall in the shape of a circle that holds 15-20 kids with room to move around comfortably. The game itself is a mix between dodging, striking, and running. The point of the game is to be the last one eliminated. Here’s how you play, the first thing you do is you get into the pit and the ref will decide if you stand or sit. After that, you just have to hit the ball with your hands, but nothing else. When you hit it, try to direct it at another player. If the ball touches anything but your hands, then you are out. The overall objective of the game is to be the last one out. Just have fun with it, that’s the whole reason it’s there.
