Bubble Soccer – A Bouncy New Sport

Welcome back for 2014!!

Sometimes the equipment makes the game. That’s the case with Bubble Soccer, a new soccer variation in which players wear inflatable bubble-wrap balls. It turns them into giant, bouncy sumo wrestlers. Aside from the no-contact rule (contact is actually encouraged), the regular rules of soccer apply.

Here’s a video of a bubble soccer game.

And here’s how to celebrate a goal.

You can see more Bubble Soccer videos from the Bubble Soccer Australia website. Just click the Watch More button:

Invented in Denmark, the Bubble Suits aren’t cheap – originally called BumperZ, a package of 12 suits will cost you about $4600 (according to the Bubble Soccer Australia sites. http://www.bubblesoccer.com.au/products/ or the European distributor: http://www.funballz.com/products/inflatable-bumperz-bodyzorbing

There are some Chinese manufacturers that can purportedly provide cheaper suits, but that’s buyer beware:

I hope 2014 turns out to be an amazing year for you!

New Sport – Bossaball

 

Well, it’s July and summer vacation has just begun here in North  America. For those of you still checking PE Update, I thought I’d provide a video of a new sport that you’ll probably never be able to play in your school (because it looks expensive to set up), but that looks like a lot of fun. It’s called Bossaball and it’s a combination of volleyball, soccer, gymnastics and trampolining!

Check out the video – it provides the basic rules and shows how the pros play. Have a great summer!!
