    In 10th grade our gym teacher was an 80 year old who didn't like to walk all the way outside. About half of that year was spent playing free-for-all dodgeball in the wrestling room (small room with padded walls and floor). Best gym class ever

    In this case though, the school district is considering banning dodgeball for everyone, just because a kid got hurt when some kids used soccer balls without permission instead of normal rubber dodge balls.
