STRAPS (South Texas Regional Adaptive and Paralympic Soccer) is seeking visually impaired athletes to form a team for goalball, a competitive sport similar to soccer that’s played three-against-three indoors on a gym floor. “There are two teams, one on each end of a 60- by 40-foot court,” said Wendy Gumbert, STRAPS sports director. “Because of varying levels of sight among players, all are blindfolded to make the game fair. The objective is to roll a three-pound goalball, similar to a heavy basketball, past the opposing team, which is trying to block the ball.”
