We help lead a youth group at church which includes kids from grades 6-8 (ages 11-14)
I'm trying to figure out a way to make dodgeball fun for everyone. My problem is some of the girls don't like it b/c the guys throw too hard. I can't totally nix dodgeball as an activity because we ask the kids to help lead/pick games and this is one of the more popular games.
What ways are there to even things out? I thought about making guys throw standing on one leg or throw from their knees or throw with their off hand but still wondering if there are other things we can do that doesn't "dumb down" the game but still makes everyone feel included?
