This not only teaches them the importance of volunteering but helps them prepare to apply for college scholarships. Please consider these hard working young ladies if you need volunteers.

Human Foosball

Human foosball is played just like table foosball but instead of little guys on a rotating stick you have real people moving back and forth on horizontal pipes on a 32’ by 16’ court. Players must hold on to the pipe at their designated spot; in order to move side to side, all players on that pipe must move at the same time while maintaining two hand contact with the sliding pipe. Players can only use their feet, but can stretch as far as they can while still maintaining pipe contact. The object, of course, is to kick the soccer ball into the goal. Each team has six people: a goalie, two attackers, and three mid-field players

Play Human Foosball Friday, August 17 at noon

Garrett Hartingan

Friday and Saturday at 2:00 pm
