I have a mixed opinion about dodgeball. I always enjoyed dodgeball growing up as a child, but recently my eyes have been opened about the negativity surrounding the game. I feel that dodgeball could be useful if played properly. A professional physical education teacher should make variations to the game to make it appropriate and more of a learning experience as opposed to creating human targets, isolating students, hiding etc. In addition, the teacher should create an alternative to those who wish to not participate in dodgeball, dodgeball should be an option not a requirement for there are many negatives embedded in the game. If a student wishes to sit out it is because they know they will not benefit from the experience and vis versa.
