Goal Ball is a competitive game designed for blind athletes. The game is played on opposite ends of a gym with a basketball size hollow ball with bells inside, producing noise as it is rolled. The object of the game is to roll the ball past your opponent's goal line before they can block the ball. A point is scored when the ball crosses the goal line.

The MASD goal ball team practices once a week during the school year and competes in local and state competitions. There is no cost for participation in this program.
