Ga-Ga Pit

Ga-Ga Pit

Ga-ga ;(Hebrew: ??-???? literally 'touch-touch') is a variant of dodgeball that is played within an area shaped like an octagon about 3' tall called a ga-ga pit using one rubber kickball. The game combines dodging, striking, running, and jumping, with the object of being the last person standing. The game begins when one player throws the ga-ga ball into the air; while their backs are against the wall, the players shout "Ga" on each of the first three bounces. After three bounces, the ball is in play, and the players "hit" the ball at each other in the pit. A player who is hit by the ball below the knees is out. The game can be played by a group of individual players or with teams, as well as in one-on-one matches.
