The Outlook Mavericks are now offering male and female teams for adults who are visually impaired.  In 2019 they will be practicing a few Saturdays a month at UNO and traveling to play in national competitions in Michigan, Oregon, Georgia, and Tennessee. Individuals who are blind or visually impaired are welcomed to join! No experience necessary! Contact Lisa at 531-365-5328.

Goalball¬†is a team sport designed specifically for athletes with a vision impairment. Participants compete in teams of three, and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it into the opponents’ goal. The ball is thrown by hand and never kicked. Using ear-hand coordination, originating as a rehabilitation exercise, the sport has no able-bodied equivalent.
