The volleyball court in the gym at Camden Middle School looks normal- until the students start draping sheets over the net and bring out a big plastic ball to toss over it. The seventh-graders aren’t’ taking clown classes; they’re preparing to play Blackout, a mixed-up version of traditional volleyball. Many of the rules stay the same, but the ball is definitely different—softer so it doesn’t hurt like a hard volleyball—and the sheets add an element of excitement; players can’t see from which direction the ball is coming.
