Pro

its proven that people get hurt in doge ball but just because one preson got hurt is should not mean everyone should stop playing
Chetork

Con

When we argue the concept of dodgeball we must think about it nationwide, several years ago in our nation it took place every day in schools across the country.

The concern it presents now is that this is an aggressive sport that you aren't penalized for trying to "out" the other player. This raises concerns of bullies being able to take out their aggression on a fellow class mates. Various kids ganging up on one other child can cause them to feel like a target in school.

Pro

they do that for fun and if you want to ruin dodgeball go ahead
Chetork

Con

When you speak of dodgeball you imply it is the only fun game to play during gym, however there are plenty more activities that substitue dodgeball and are far less dangerous, in fact schools have begun to bring it back in safer forms where you can roll the ball and if it makes contact with a player they're out. Why would we not do something like that rather than full on aggressive throwing of dodgeballs at one another.

Reasons for voting decision: Con argued that bullies use dodgeball to take out their aggression on fellow classmates. Pro argued that schools use soft balls, and if one person is hurt they may not play but at least allow other to play. Con couldn't rebut. Both arguments were short and crisp, but pro managed to rebut as pro argued that those who get hurt may not play,. Con forfeited, so conduct goes to pro. Neither side used sources, and spelling and grammar was fair on both sides.
