About Goalball and the King Cobras

Described as "soccer for the blind", goalball provides a team sport outlet for the blind and visually impaired community. It was created by World War II veterans who wanted to continue to play sports after becoming visually impaired. Teams of three stand on either side of a court marked with rope so players can feel the boundary lines. Players serve a ball with bells inside of it to the opposite side of the court, trying to get it past defenders to score a goal. Today, a dedicated group of players and advocates have started Seattle's first goalball team in over 30 years: the King Cobras.

We look forward to some exciting games and new opportunities!
