School Bans Balls
Recess has just become a little less fun in Port Washington, New York. Weber Middle School is banning almost all recreational balls. That means no more tossing around footballs. And no more soccer balls, baseballs, or lacrosse balls, either. Nerf balls are allowed, but tag is now banned. And you can't do cartwheels unless you are supervised by a coach. The school says it is worried about injuries, and schools across the country have called them about a similar ban.
