Games are played using half the gym

 

2 games happening at the same time during the 7:45 am timeslot

 

2 games happening at the same time during the 8:00 am timeslot

 

10 minute games

 

whichever team has the most points at the end of the game wins

 

Each team begins the game with 5 players on the court and the remaining players on their respective benches

 

To begin the game, 11 dodgeballs will be lined up at centre with each player starting on the court lying down on their stomachs at the volleyball court end lines

 

As play begins, teams throw dodgeballs at the other team as in any other version of dodgeball, trying to eliminate them

 

The player who was struck by a dodgeball must quickly get off the court, through the pylons, and sit at the end of their team’s bench

 

A player leaving the court to go sit on their bench signifies to the referee that a point has been scored by the opposing team

 

As soon as the player who was hit by a ball sits on their bench, the player at the front of the bench immediately enters the game and all players on the bench move 1 spot closer to the front, waiting to get into the game

 

 

You are OUT if:

 

you get hit directly by a ball (bounces do not count) at the shoulders or below

 

the ball you threw gets caught by an opponent

 

the ball you are using to block a ball gets knocked out of your hands while blocking

 

You are ever holding onto more than 1 ball at a time
