Dear haver of eyes who is reading this right now,
You should probably come play with us. If you like charity and fun and smiling and stuff. Fun’s pretty alright.
If you’ve ever been in a sports league before, you know how the idea of “social” actually just ends up being each team of pre-existing friends hanging out in cliques a lot of times? Yeah, that sucks. You’ll find a lot of that in this city. Here, it’s an actual community. So brace yourself for actually an inclusive community. Deep breaths.
Whatever you’re into: whether you're awful, great, wanna compete, just wanna meet some people, run around like a kid, have a drink after work – you’re good to go here.
Ooooh! lookie! Here’s a bullet point list of why we’re gooder! Because you know, kids these days and their buzzfeed lists and stay off my lawn:
BETTER GAME EXPERIENCE
1. By players, for players: a community, not a corporation
2. Lowest cost sport league in the city
3. The most playing time
4. Options for all-stars, casual players, or suckos (term of endearment)
5. Old school playground balls (8.5”), No-sting rubber balls, or soft foam balls
BETTER SOCIAL EXPERIENCE
1. Seasonal charity drive to an organization of your choice
2. Actually meeting good people, not cliques
3. Balanced gender ratio
4. Post-game drink specials, Beer games and shenanigans
5. Costume themes (optional, but you get free shots!)
If you’re looking for the best players in NYC – our players represent NYC in national tournament (and you can too!) - you’ve come to the right place!
If you’re just looking for funsies and can’t throw or catch to save your life? You’ve also come to the right place! Or anything in between.
We’re just a good group of people of all walks of life who realized you’re allowed to play dodgeball after grade school apparently. Who knew? Our motto’s “Don’t be a dick.” You’re not a dick are you? No? Great! You’ll fit right in!
Pretty much, if you’re in NYC and playing dodgeball somewhere else, you kiiiinda F'ed up…
So don’t F up. All the cool kids are doing it. You don't wanna not be a cool kid do you?!

Great way to be a part of a cool community. Play for free, get free drinks at the bars, get discounts for buddies too so you look cool to your pals.
Were you a terrific camp counselor and can translate that to adults? Then you're our (wo)man. Probably the only thing where having camp counselor on your resume is a plus. And your friends who took banking internships said you'd never amount to anything from summer camp. Look at you now! Making a few bucks an hour as a big important dodgeball ref! All those color wars were worth it!
