Kids will have a ball playing Balloon Ball

By Schaumburg Park District

Balloon ball is an energetic new game that teaches children just how fun exercise can be.

All is fair in Balloon ball. Balloon ball is an exciting new sport that is played like soccer with a few new additions; children are able to pick up the ball and run with it, throw it or kick it into one of the two goals to score.

Balloon ball classes start July 12 and are held at Meineke Recreation Center, 220 E. Weathersfield Way.

With a faster pace and fewer rules than soccer, kids are not being corrected as much in this new exciting game. Kids will be taught coordination and balance along with the importance of exercise that their bodies need.

Kids just love this new game that was created by Kids First.
