City Physical Education Teacher w/ little resources and space

Hey everyone!

My name is Tim and I have been teaching physical education in an inner city school in Brooklyn, NY for this entire school year. The school is a new school with a small student body (130 9th graders). However, the physical education gymnasium is a converted classroom. The class room consists of:

-Padded floors (similar to the padding found in weight rooms)
-Limited Equipment (foam balls, frisbees, cones, kickballs, etc)
-Glass Windows throughout half of the room
-Brick walls without padding
-3 treadmills and 3 bikes in two of the four corners of the room

So far my curriculum has included soccer, weight lifting, stationary fitness, Tae Bo, European Handball, Basketball (modified), soccer, kickball, Ultimate Frisbee, etc. However, during an incident with a Wiffle Ball unit (student got hit in the eye with a wiffle ball... yes a plastic wiffle ball ), I was instructed that I can no longer play wiffle ball in my gymnasium. For those found in a similar situation and environment, what are some activities that you found successful?
