Great Exercise with Friends!

Columbus Event Center hosts adult dodgeball leagues from September through April each year. Our leagues are open to men, women, and coed teams. We also offer a "high school" division for participating teams who are currently in high school. In addition to our adult leagues, we also offer youth dodgeball sessions for kids under 16 years of age. Youth dodgeball will be offered if enough interest exists to form a league.

For our 2020-2021 league seasons, age is determined as of July 31st, 2021

Registrations are currently being accepted for our dodgeball leagues. The cost to adult teams remains unchanged again this year at $200 per team. The cost for youth registrations is $20/player for all ages. Or, purchase a LEAGUE PASS and play in unlimited sports seasons for one low rate. Click here for details.

Registrations will be accepted at the Event Center during business hours, by phone (Option 4 - leave a message outside of business hours), or online at any time.

Age Divisions

We currently offer Men's/Mixed, Women's, and Coed divisions for adults. Our Men's/Mixed division teams can have women on the roster, while our Women's division is for women only. Our Coed division requires that teams must have a minimum of three women on the roster, and that at least two women must be on the floor for each game. We also offer a High School division for teams with rostered players who are currently attending high school (16-19 year olds). We will also offer a special night for youth to play dodgeball, if enough interest exists. Age is determined as of July 31, 2020

Game Details

Games are 25-minutes in length. The clock runs throughout the game, only stopping for a timeout. Each team is given one 1-minute timeout per week. The game begins with six players on the floor from each team. At the official's signal, players from each team charge the center line to gather their assigned dodgeballs (the three balls to the right of center). The players must then retrieve the dodgeballs back to the throw line to be live. From there, it is just how you remembered it. Simply eliminate all of the players from the opposing team. The team who accomplishes this is awarded a point on the scoreboard. At the conclusion of the 25-minutes, the team with the most points, wins. A tiebreak procedure is used to determine a weekly winner.

Season Schedule

To date, adult league games have been played on Tuesdays only. While Tuesdays will still be the primary date for adult dodgeball action, we will also be opening up Thursday nights as well for additional leagues or divisions. So, if your team is available either Tuesday or Thursday, be sure to sign up right away, as space is very limited. The season generally wraps up with an extra (not previously scheduled) week of games, just for fun. This is a purely recreational league, although we will offer separate A, B, and even C divisions if needed. Youth games will likely precede the adult division games on Tuesday evenings.

Required Equipment

The only required equipment is appropriate clothing. Jerseys or team uniforms are not required, but any participant wearing inappropriate clothing (purposely undersized, oversized, inappropriate content) will be asked to change clothes or leave. We do recommend sports glasses/goggles for participants who wear glasses.

How Do I Register?

Teams and youths can be registered online through our website using our online registration system. Simply select the appropriate link to register your dodgeball team. You will be redirected to an online registration form based upon your selection. Complete the online form, and your registration will be emailed to Columbus Event Center. You will also receive a copy in your email account as well to review for missing or inaccurate information (please contact us if you find any mistakes). Of course, you can also register by downloading a team roster/registration form from our website, or by picking one up at the rink. We can also mail one to you if you would like, along with other helpful information about our leagues. Or, we can also take registrations over the phone in just a few short minutes. Registration fees must be paid by the deadline to be included, and late registrants will be placed on a waiting list. Columbus Event Center can accept cash, checks, and credit cards for payment of all registration fees.

After completing the form, you will have an link option to pay your league fees online through our secure store. Simply click the button to be redirected to the "League Sign-Up" category in our online Pro Shop. Or, if you are purchasing a LEAGUE PASS, select that item from the "Gift Cards & Passes" category. Add the correct item to your cart and complete the checkout process as you would any other online transaction. It's that easy! To speed up the process, and to give you the ability to look back at your order history, current order status, and more, feel free to create an account. Otherwise, you may checkout as a guest. If you have trouble, don't hesitate to contact us for assistance or to complete the registration over the phone.

I've Registered. Now What?

First of all, thank you for taking part in these great leagues. We appreciate your support, and look forward to getting out on the court for some dodgeball! We have created deadlines for our leagues that are two weeks before the start of the season. This allows us some time to sort out teams, create age divisions, and put together information together for our captains or team contacts. Team contacts or captains should be contacted at least one week before the scheduled start date of any league. If, for some reason, you do not hear from us, or do not receive information about the start of the season, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately at (402)562-5663. The rink owners can also be reached via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
