Recreational (Rec) Sports on San Jacinto College Central Campus is bringing back bubble soccer for a third time promising participants a fun experience complete with brand new equipment.

Rec Sports Senior Administrative Assistant Mary Shelley said her team introduced the activity on the Central Campus after seeing it at other institutions.

“We thought it would be a welcome addition to San Jac,” Shelley said. “We like to try new and exciting events for our students.”

Bubble soccer is played in a grassy area while players’ heads and upper bodies are encased in a bubble-like inflatable sphere. Like traditional soccer, participants kick the ball with the intention of scoring a goal.

“It is just a fun event, seeing the students run, bump, and hit in the bubbles,” she said. The bubbles go flying and rolling all over the grass.”

However, Shelley noted, bubble soccer attracts more than just students, as evidenced by a battle that took place last semester between firefighter students and their instructors.

“The students did hit hard but so did the instructors,” she said. “Everyone was laughing and having a great time.”

Bubble Soccer will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 21 in the courtyard outside the Student Center (C14) on the Central Campus.
