The Sweden/Clarkson Community Center now has a gaga pit for residents to enjoy thanks to the efforts of Coby Albone. Coby is a College at Brockport student majoring in physical and health education with a concentration in adapted physical education. In lieu of a thesis paper, Coby chose to construct a gaga pit for the community center.

The gaga pit consists of flat walls about hip high. A ball, similar to a foam dodgeball or rubber kickball, is batted between players with their hands. The goal is to avoid being hit by the ball and be the last person standing.

Coby chose the project because it is a creative and unique game that incorporates many different skills. “We’re very grateful to be the recipient of Coby’s hard work,” said Sweden/Clarkson Community Center Director Jill Wisnowski. “Our summer camp kids love it and we’ll be incorporating the gaga pit into our fall programming.”
