W H A T   A R E   C O M P A N Y   L E A G U E S?

This league is for company groups - be that office mates, corporate team, alumni group, church group, non-profit, um, yahtzee club? Etc.

Here's a PDF flyer you can send to your company - now who's a hero for finding a cool new office thingy!

Teambuilding can be just a buzzword - what that means here is we understand how important colleagues bonding outside work is: A focus on social interaction - not the usual lazy execution of "here's a gym, balls, & a ref - go!" in leagues.

Weekly game photos for your HR departments to show off and help recruit - showing off "lookie what cool stuff our company does!"

W H A T   A R E   S O C I A L   L E A G U E S?

NYC's classic - these leagues are for everyone - good, suck, newbie, veteran, athletic, or uncoordinated!

Like, winning's definitely cool and all, but really not the singular focus, ya dig? The motto's "Hey don't be a dick." Good or bad can thrive here

THE league in the city to meet people and feel most welcome. (Not to toot our own horn, but that's the reputation out there - beep muthaf-in beep)

We mix up the teams every season. Because of that, it's not cliquey like most sports leagues - everyone gets to know everyone as one big community - not just a bunch of preexisting friend groups.

Dodgeball Rules Overview

We'll explain it all, but in short:

  • 6 balls, to rush for in the middle.
  • Throw em! (Without being a dick by overthrowing at people smaller/not as good!)
  • Head safety - keep throws low!
  • Stay in bounds!
  • Out if your throw's caught, or if a throw hits you or knocks a ball out of your hand
  • The ball is live until it hits the ground - so it can be caught off a deflection...or it can hit out more than one person!
  • When out, get in line on the sideline.  If a player on your team who's still in makes a catch, whoever's first in line comes back in - up to the number of players who started.
  • Play til one team's dead, rinse and repeat!
  • Your record determines your seeding for the playoffs. Everyone makes the playoffs
