The basic objective of Gaga Ball is to eliminate all other opponents by striking them with the ball below the knee (or waist), while also avoiding being hit. You can play with any number of people, such as one on one, two on two, and so on. When multiple players are involved a second ball is typically put into play for more action. One of the essential components of the game is the pit itself. Children can use it to aid their jumps or help with dodging the ball. At the beginning, everyone has to start with one hand against the wall and chant “Ga. Ga. Go!” with the “Go!” signaling that they can go after the ball.
The game of GaGa Ball also requires that one person stand in as the referee to ensure the rules are followed by both teams. The referee begins the game by having the players touch the wall with one hand while then signaling for another player to toss the ball up in the air. Once the ball comes off of its second bounce, the game can begin! Of course, the rules can very as is the case with any playground game, and there's no reason you can't make your own to maximize the fun!
