Bossaball

It is a ball game between two teams that mixes volleyball, football, gymnastics and capoeira on a court. This one is a combination of inflatables and trampolines divided by a net. The aim is to ground the ball in the opponent’s field.

Each team, of three to five players, is entitled to a maximum of eight contacts with the ball in its field while the trampoline jumper gains height to prepare a smash. They can touch the ball once with their hands or double touch it with their feet and/or head. Once a team grounds the ball on the inflatable it gains 1 point, or 3 points if scored on the trampolines.

The referees have a whistle, a microphone, percussion instruments and a DJ who is the master of ceremonies.

Parkour

This sport comes from France and its main purpose is to move from one place to another as fast as possible, mainly using physical ability.
