QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What is the team roster deposit?
Is there a DodgeBall League in London?
What do we get if we win?
You get to rub peoples noses in the fact that you beat them.
The winning teams will be presented with medals.
There is a prize awarded to the 1st and 2nd place teams and 3rd for Tournaments.
These awards will vary from each Tournament and League.
We will at times also have an award for best team uniform/theme and sportsmanship.
The current prizes have not been posted but checkout the prizes from our last tournament.

Do I need to sign up early or can I sign up on game day?
You do need to sign up early. Generally 2 weeks prior to the event is the last day to register.
Plus you can save yourself up to $100.00 by signing up early.
In addition to that we offer cash prizes to those who sign up early.
If we have more people than expected we may not be able to guarantee
them entry into the game. If we know earlier we can have the right number
of courts and officials available.
What if I can't throw?
Just remember the 5 D's of DodgeBall. Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge.
If you're not comfortable throwing you can pass the ball off to a team member.
How many games will we be playing?
Are we guaranteed a certain number of games?
The number of teams participating will determine the number of matches
being played. Each match is 17 minutes in length.
Each team will have at least 4 matches in Tournaments.
Those teams that make it into the finals will have additional game play.
What if we have more than 10 (12) people?
The following response applies to Tournaments only.
6 to 12 people is the allowable number. If you have more then 12, register a 2nd team.
When you register a 2nd team or refer a team you get $20.00 off your registration.
That's a $20.00 savings. Keep in mind when setting up a 2nd team it's best to have
at least 8 people. With only 6 you'll have no subs and will tire quickly.
Plus not everyone always makes it on game day.
If you don't meet the minimum team requirements you will be automatically
disqualified without refund.
Does it hurt when you get hit?
No. The our dodge balls are foam balls with a vinyl coating.
Even if you’re hit at close proximity there’s very little impact.
What sort of clothes do I wear? Do I need protective equipment?
Generally you’ll want to wear the same clothes you would exercise in.
Something breathable that you won’t overheat in. Proper footwear is important.
A court shoe is ideal. None marking soles are required for all indoor events.
We don’t recommend a boot with a deep tread. As for personal protective equipment.
A jock or a jill is a nice added feature but is not necessary.
Some people like knee or elbow pages.
Depends on how hard you’re going to play.
Why do we have to have 2 girls on the team?
Each team must have at least 2 people of each sex.
This promotes a more open playing environment and encourages
more people to play. Besides that we had quite a few girls that really kicked butt!!
Do I have to be in good shape?
No. Being in good shape may help though.
The nice thing about this game is that people generally don’t play dodgeball
regularly so everybody’s skill level will be equal.
How do I find more out about Dodgeball?
Do I need to bring anything else?
Drinking fountains will be accessible.
If you wish to consume any other non-alcoholic beverages or
food choices feel free to bring them. All beverages must be in sealbale containers.
Who enforces the rules?
Two Officials are present on each court.
However the primary success of these events is the common practice
of good Sportsmanship on the part of each player.
When do the Leagues run?
The Leagues will run for 9 weeks at a time. One in the Fall (starts in September).
The Winter League (starts in January).
Do you only do Dodgeball in London?
Currently we are only operating the League in London.
If you live in or around Chatham, Windsor, Woodstock, St.Thomas or Goderich
and would like to see a Tournament come to your city let us know. click here
How old do I have to be to play?
You must be at least 16 years of age to play. In the future we may host a licensed event.
In that event you must be 19 years of age. If you are between 12 and 16 years of age
and interested in playing Dodgeball please let us know.
We have a database of interested individuals.
Once we have over 50 people on that database we will proceed in implementing a youth
Dodgeball League or Tournament.
