The Paralympic Sports Club of Columbus is hosting the USABA Midwest Regional Goalball Tournament, but needs volunteers like YOU!
Goalball is the most popular team sport for the blind and visually impaired. The sport originated in 1946 when Austrian Hanz Lorrenzen and German Sett Reindle developed the game as a way to keep blinded WWII veterans physically active. Goalball has since become the premier team sport for blind athletes and is played competitively in 112 countries.
What: All volunteers will be helping with the visually impaired sport Goalball. Volunteers will be trained upon arrival to be a line judge, score keeper, time clock keeper, check in personnel, guide, or food helper.
Where: Ohio State School for the Blind, 5220 N. High St. Columbus, OH 43214
When: Sunday, March 8th (11:30am – 3:00pm)
