It seems gaga pits are being build everywhere! And no wonder, they are so much fun for kids! Students at St. Mary’s Catholic School are going gaga, but they’re neither crazy nor overly zealous fans of a certain pop singer.
Instead, the Longview students have become eager players of gaga, a form of Israeli dodgeball. Children can touch the ball with their hands or other parts of their body, but if it touches their feet, they’re out. So kids spend a lot of time jumping and weaving to make sure the ball doesn’t come into contact with their feet.

Found a great website today, it has tons of useful resources for inline skating! The Inline Skating Resource Center (ISRC) is the website originally representing the International Inline Skating Association and now operated by Zephyr Inline Skate Tours.
The International Inline Skating Association (IISA) was founded in 1991 by a group of manufacturers, retailers, and skaters who chose to be proactive about enhancing the future of the sport of inline skating. For 14 years the IISA developed educational programs, promoted safe skating, and protected and expanded access to public skate ways across the country. Areas of emphasis of the IISA included the Instructor Certification Program, the National Skate Patrol, the Gear Up! Program, and the Government Relations Program.
On December 20, 2004 the IISA disbanded. At that time, ownership of this website was transferred to Zephyr Adventures, operator of inline skating vacations through Europe and North Americ

Do you want your chance to skate in the shadows of Montreal’s famous Bell Centre? Then head down to downtown Montreal on Wednesday, November 27th to skate on a synthetic ice rink and Sport Resource Group ProWall Rink System.
Come celebrate Montreal’s rich hockey heritage at the site of the city’s first hockey rink during a one-day extravaganza on Wednesday, November 27, 2013. Kraft Hockeyville 2014 is being launched from the site of the Victoria Skating Rink, which once stood on Drummond St. between Rene-Levesque Blvd. and Ste. Catherine St. The world’s first formal indoor hockey game was played on its surface in 1875 and the first Stanley Cup was presented in it in 1893. (According to the website victoriarink.org, the building was considered the “Mother of all Arenas and Hockey Rinks”.) The cup itself will make an appearance, along with former Montreal Canadien Patrice Brisebois and the Kraft teddy bears, a hit with the younger ones. An outdoor skating rink will be created – for this one day only – so bring the kids, their skates and make some family hockey history of your own. The site is scheduled to be developed into condos, so this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to skate where Canada’s great game developed into what it is today. This launch of Kraft Hockeyville 2014 is free and open to the public, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m Learn more here – http://www.montrealfamilies.ca/Montreal-Families/December-2013/Hockey-day-in-downtown-Montreal/
