CATCHBALL

CATCHBALL

Catchball is a highly successful social-sport start-up from Israel and is now globally recognized. It encourages women to come together as a team to socialize, be active, and have fun.

Catchball is a team sport for women, similar to volleyball, set up and played on a volleyball court. The object of the game is to pass the ball over the net in order to ground it on the opponent's court to earn a point, and to prevent the same effort by the other team.
Each team can touch the ball up to three times on their side of the net, before returning it to the opponent's court. 

Maccabi Canada Catchball is a structured recreational sports program for all women, emphasizing well-being, socializing, inclusion and fair play. The foundation of our Catchball program is inclusive and welcomes participants of all skill levels and abilities.

Maccabi Canada is the official representative of the International Catchball Federation in Canada.  We believe that Catchball has the ability to unify communities, empower women, and increase women’s participation in sports.

New players will make new friends, learn to catch, throw, spike the ball, while laughing and having fun. We also try to partner new players with a friend or someone that can help them get started.

Returning Players can expect guest coaches, specialized clinics with training and many scheduled inter-league games and tournaments.

The 2021-2022 Season will offer teams in various locations in the GTA and Calgary, based on enrollment.  Each location will be limited to 16 participants.  A minimum of 14 participants is required to run each team. New players are welcomed!! 

The Season includes:  practices, inter-league games, team T-shirt, and Maccabi Canada end of season tournament.  The Season will run from October to June.  Cost TBC

TESTIMONIALS

What does playing Catchball mean to me? Initially, I joined Catchball because the idea of getting back into a team sport was very appealing. I played volleyball as a child and young adult and really enjoyed it. I have been playing Catchball for 3 years and it is one of my favorite things to do. I love diving across the court, making the catch, and throwing the ball to make the play!

What do I like about Catchball? I really enjoy the camaraderie on the court. We chat, tease, and encourage each other to do better. It really is so much fun to be on the court with the other women. Skill does not really matter, what matters is that everyone is playing and having fun. Physical exercise is another important aspect of why I play. I feel so much better about myself, both while I am playing and afterwards. I also enjoy learning new skills and discovering how to be a better Catchball player. Alongside the regular practices, there were also pickup practices with teams from all around Toronto. This was a great way to exercise, to gain new skills, and to intermingle and have fun with the other team members.
