Mother of god no! What if the little angels get paper cuts?
I used to play Dr.Dodgeball all the time in school. It was my hands down favorite game. I was pretty fast, and I caught well, so it didn't matter that most people targeted me. A few times, I had to play blind because one of the kids on the other team thought it was funny to send my glasses flying. I lost three pairs that way, and at least five bloody noses.
I didn't care. I got right back in.
It was a team sport for my school. There would be the girly-girls in the back, trying not to get hit, the showy guys, and the targets. The targets never went down, because they watched each other's backs.
I had bad luck with about every other sport. Baseball, they didn't like how I caught balls, so they gave me a 'lesson' on it. Got hit in the gut three times with a fastpitch ball before they admitted my way was better. Soccor, they wouldn't let me play because of my asthma. Basketball, the guy blocking me would usually be grabby-grabby. Those were worse, but no one is banning those.
