OBJECT OF THE GAME:
There will be six people playing per team during the game.
Each match will consist of 2 or 3 games in a best of 3 format.
The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them “OUT”. Balls will be provided for the event. Game begins by placing the dodge balls along the center line – three (3) on one side of the center hash and three (3) on the other. Players then take a position behind their end line. Following a signal by the official, teams may approach the center line to retrieve the balls. This signal officially starts the contest. Teams may only retrieve the three (3) balls to their right of the center hash. Once a ball is retrieved it must be taken behind the attack-line before it can be legally thrown. If a player is hit with any ball that has not yet touched the ground, that player is “out”. Play continues until one team is eliminated. Match will consist of 5-minute games.
