Gaga Ball comes to Woodmere

gagaball

History of the GaGa Ball Game in the US

This game became popular among Jewish camps during the 1970’s and has seen a huge resurgence recently at camps, schools, and youth activity centers outside of the Jewish community. GaGa actually translates from Hebrew as “touch-touch” and is a variation on dodgeball.  To some it is known as Israeli Dodgeball, Octo-Ball, or Panda Ball.  It is commonly believed that the game was brought to the US Jewish summer camps by Israeli camp counselors.

Gaga Ball is a fun, easy game to learn and play.  The basic object of the game is to eliminate your opponents by striking the ball and having it hit them below the knee (or waist) while trying to avoid being hit yourself.  The game can be a one on one match up game or simply a larger group of individuals each playing against the group.  To increase the fun and action for larger groups, often a second ball can be put into play as well. As with any playground game, the actual details of the GaGa Ball game rules will vary from location to location.

Instead of children learning the game from adults, children are spreading the news about GaGa Ball and are actually teaching their parents and fellow playground participants about the game. The games ability to include large numbers of children into a action packed game, with quick game turnover, has grabbed children’s attention around the US. Kids can play for hours without losing interest.
