Tournment Rules  

Each game teams can start up to 8 players per side.  (max 6 guys, no minimums)

Gameplay:

  • Games begin with each team holding 3 dodgeballs
  • When the referee blows the whistle to start layers come out throwing
  • The game is won when the opponent has no more active players on the court

Honor calling - While referees will be watching the game it is expected that players will honor call themselves out.  Repeated or gross violations can result in additional players from that team also being called out.  Example:  Player A on team A clearly has a ball hit off their leg and does not leave, the referee may blow the whistle to call them out and asses a 2nd player being called out as a result of the clear attempt to cheat.  This rules is there as a deterrent and will be called by referees at their discretion.

NO HEAD SHOTS – hit someone in the head and they are not out, you are.  Unless that person’s head was below their standing head height.  Example: bending down to pick up a ball

  • Repeated infractions can result in a player being tossed out of the tournament

Live ball & dead ball

  • Any ball that leaves a players hand is live until it comes in contact with something else
  • If a live ball hits a player and that player does not catch that ball the player is out; the ball must be caught before it touches anything else
  • If a live ball is caught the player throwing that ball is out
  • If a live ball hits anything else before hitting a player it becomes dead (walls, ceiling, other balls, the floor, or other players)
  • Any ball held for more than 10 seconds will be whistled a dead ball and must be rolled towards the center of the opponent’s court

Game boundaries  (each court may have unique rules, inquire with referees before games begin)

  • Players must stay in bounds or they will be out; unless directed by a referee
  • Any part of a player that touches ground over the center line or across the side & back line will be out; unless directed by a referee

Stalling - If gameplay slows down referees will begin counting 3-2-1-0.  If a referee gets to zero the game will be stopped and the balls evenly distributed to both teams before play is resumed.

Other rules

  • Players may block a ball with another ball
  • If a player has a ball knocked out of their hand they are out; this often occurs while trying to block a ball with a ball
