Complete Details: Adult Dodgeball
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.
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.
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.
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 can be registered online through our website using our online registration system. Simply click on the "team registration" button above, and follow the steps to complete the form. 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.
I've Registered. Now What?
What About Youth Dodgeball Leagues?
Columbus Event Center is willing to host up to four different sessions of youth dodgeball between September and May of each year. Depending upon the number of registrants, the divisions are typically split up into a 6-10 year old division and a separate 11-16 year old division. Our dodgeball sessions are not set up in a league format, necessarily, but rather as an open time slot for kids to play a variety of dodgeball variations. At a minimum of six weeks in length each session, the $15 registration fee is tough to beat for this much fun and exercise! Contact us for complete details.
