Transcript of Speedball
The game was invented by Elmer D. Mitchell in the early 1920s at the University of Michigan which combined elements of sports such as basketball, soccer, football, and handball.
SpeedBall was created to be played in the spring and in the fall.
The sport was created to involve more students, especially those who were not as athletic.
Speedball is generally played on a basketball court.
The size of the goal should be about 6ft. wide by 3ft. tall.
A soccer ball or volleyball may be used.
: if a field player touches the ball with his/her hands after it touches the ground
: when any player takes steps after coming to a complete stop while the ball is secured in a player's hands
Goalies passing the half-court line.
All penalties result in turning the ball over to the opposing team's goalie!
Passing( w/ hands and feet)
Dribbling( feet only)
Usually games are played with five players.( four field players and one goalie)
Game starts by having a jump ball in the center of the court.
Field players are allowed to move anywhere on court. Goalies must stay on their side of the court.
Field players may use arms/hands as long as the last thing the ball touches is not the ground.
Players are NOT able to run with the ball but are able to "dribble" the ball once the ball hits the ground.
