NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Weber Middle School in New York is banning soccer, football, baseball and lacrosse balls. Rough games of tag and even cartwheels have also been ruled out, unless supervised by a coach.

But why? The superintendent tells our sister station WCBS that there have been several injuries lately on the playground.

Nerf balls, though, are still allowed. Parents implied that they think the school might be worried about lawsuits over playground injuries.

Yahoo News reports that another elementary school in Michigan reportedly created a "no tag" and "no chasing" policy.
