Dodge ball seems safer to me than volleyball. I've injured my wrist pretty badly hitting the volleyball wrong and then exacerbated it by continuing to play. Now I don't play it anymore. It may have been a combination of carpal tunnel and then hitting a volleyball wrong, but in any case, I'm very protective of my wrists and hands now, particularly now that <french accent>I am an arteeeest!</french accent>

Since "dodgeball" is reportedly banned from the government indoctrination centers we should give kids (old and young) a chance to play that here.

That's like saying, "Now that they banned whipping slaves, let's all beat each other."
I only ever played that barbaric game under duress--never again!
i played dodgeball every recess in 4th grade

Those lace-up wrist stiffener things look cool.

I couldn't agree more!  I don't know which childhood memory is more disturbing: the stark-raving terror of being inside the circle and having a hard ball hurtled at me (and as a kid with a birthday in October* and a late bloomer, I was always one of the tiniest kids in my class) or the Pon Farr-ish bloodlust that would bubble up being outside the circle trying to nail some other poor brat.  Never again.

*footnote - what I meant by that is that I was usually a year younger than the rest of my class. I understand they're really strict these days with the Sept. 1 (or whatever) cut-off date for sticking your kid in school, but either they didn't use to enforce that rule or my mother was so desperate to get me off her hands she talked the penguins into bending it.

I'm open-minded.  I have nothing against dodgeball between consenting adul-- Well, parties.

Me they jumped ahead a grade, so I was always at least a year younger, and not infrequently, nearly two.

I am so down with this idea.  Down meaning I like it.
