    I personally think this would cause outcasts to be even more outcast.

    If kids want to play they can play at home.

    Plus, I would not encourage my kids to play a game that caused other kids to be "targets" regardless of if it's fun or not. It just doesn't seem like a good lesson to me.

    I would think there would be less of a chance of feelings being hurt if it was the students decision to play or not. Plus you would be playing a game that others wanted to play together.

    You can't play it at home........those big rubber balls are only available at school.......

    Not really. What if only one kid didn't want to play? They'd just go sit alone?

    I forgot the red rubber malls were magical, not for retail sale rubber balls!

    Okay, fine. You're just a dodge ball enthusiast.

    I've always been a bit of outcast. Even among outcasts. I always loved playing dodgeball, but it got boring to me once the amount of people dwindled to almost nothing. But yeah, I knew I was a bit of a target by some, but I didn't care. I wasn't going to let some douchebags ruin my fun. And the good thing about dodgeball is that I could make them a target, too.

    I can vaguely remember that in elementary school we played dodgeball with a basket ball. Now, that really should have been banned. I think the only reason I remember that, is that I once got the wind knocked out after getting hit in the chest.

    I think we did use those medicine balls later on too. I just didn't know what they are called. But at the time I was in junior highschool, we already got the lighter, "real" dodgeball.

    Yes, we used them too, but not for dodgeball.
