What We're All About
Why we're gooder. Dazzle me!

Oh hey!  So...lemme get this little nugget out of the way - our super classy motto is "Hey don't be a dick."  Charming eh? Youre not a dick are you?  No?  Great!  You’ll fit right in!  So you should probably come play with us.  If you like charity and fun and smiling and stuff.  Fun’s pretty alright. 

Ooooh! lookie!  Here
s a bullet point list of why were gooder!  Because you know, kids these days and their buzzfeed lists and stay off my lawn:


1. By players, for players: a community, not a corporation
2. Lowest cost sport league in the city
3. The most playing time
4. Only NYC league for Elite National Tournament teams, casual player leagues, or suckos (term of endearment)
5. Only NYC league with Old school playground balls (8.5”), No-sting rubber balls, or soft foam balls


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 youve 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 their own clique a lot of times?  Yeah, that sucks.  Youll find a lot of that in New York.  Here, its an actual community.  So brace yourself for, you know, strangers being inclusive and stuff.  I know.  Deep breaths.  Whether your agenda is meeting people, some charity, grabbin a beer, exercise, a social option, a competitive one - we got you.

Pretty much, I dunno, if you’re in NYC and playing dodgeball somewhere else, you kiiiinda F'ed up

So probably don’t F up?  Plus, all the cool kids are doing it.  You don't wanna not be a cool kid do you?!  

Balls Full, Laces Tight,

Dodgeball Shogun

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!
