Today's Activity: Dodgeball

This is how you play Dodgeball

  • A live ball is a ball that has been thrown and has not yet hit the ground, the referee, another player or any other item or surface outside of the playing field.
  • If you throw a live ball that hits another player, that player is out.
  • If your ball hits anything (the floor, the referee, the ceiling, etc.) before it hits an opposing player, that ball is no longer live and that player is still in.
  • If you catch a live ball in the air, the player who threw that ball is out.
  • If you catch a live ball in the air and any of the six other original players on your team have been eliminated, one player gets to return to the game. Players should return to the game in the same order in which they were eliminated (first person to be eliminated should be the first person to return if a player on your team catches a live ball).
  • You can deflect a live ball coming towards you if you are holding another ball in your hands.
  • However, if the live ball hits any part of your body, you're out. And if the live ball causes you to drop the ball you are holding, then you're out.
  • You may not eliminate a player by hitting him above the shoulders.
  • You may not purposefully move your head into the ball to avoid being hit on another part of your body.
  • You must stay within the boundaries of the court unless you are retrieving a stray ball.
  • To retrieve a ball outside of the boundaries of the court, you must leave and return through the baseline (not the sidelines).
  • If you leave the boundaries of the court to avoid being hit or to catch a ball, you're out.
  • Play continues until one team's players have been totally eliminated or time is up.
