Dodgeballs fly across the gym as a variety of kids shout and run to avoid being hit. As one boy hits his target, his friends cheer and congratulate him.

Dodgeball club meets every other Friday from about 6:30 to 8:00 in the aux gym. Meeting dates may vary, but anyone who wants to participate can talk to Lee Banitt in room B217.

“It’s very low-key and open to everybody. The people who’ve been coming are really encouraging and supportive of others. We have all types of kids that get out and have exercise and a good time. It’s a really supportive environment,” club sponsor Lee Banitt said.

Normally the club gets about 30 participants that divide into four teams.

“We have a pretty good turnout, one night last semester we had about 50 kids. If we had more dodgeballs we would’ve made six teams,” Banitt said.

Participants must have a waver signed by a parent and pay a one-time, $1 participation fee. The fee is to pay for any dodgeballs that the club may accidentally break; Banitt donates any extra money to Riley Children’s Hospital.
