Best Children's Character-Building Program (2003)

Middle School Dodgeball League
South Suburban Parks and Recreation District

Parents, do you feel your child is getting soft and lacks the killer instinct necessary to survive today's competitive world? Well, forget Montessori and the Ivy League. South Suburban has been hosting this middle-school dodgeball league for more than a year. Games are typically held on Friday evenings (when most kids that age are gearing up for an evening of senseless vandalism). The league uses softer "gatorskin" balls -- not the painful red rubber balls of your youth -- but the effect is the same. For what it's worth, good sportsmanship is stressed.
