The intramural Dodgeball program is presently in full swing. Students from grades 4 through 8 are taking part in our leagues.

Schedules and rosters have been delivered to all classes, enabling the students to know when their games are. It is important for students to know this information in order to attend their scheduled games. Players not attending are hurting their team’s chances to win games. All players are also expected to be changed (in phys. Ed. gear) and on time.

Official Rules


  • There are 6 people playing per team during the game.
  • A match begins at 11h30 and ends at 11h55.
  • The number of balls for a 12 player game is six.
  • To begin a game players take a position behind their end line / rear wall. After a signal by the official, teams approach the centerline to retrieve the balls. 
  • Players then attempt to eliminate members of the opposing team by tagging them with the ball. If a player is hit with any ball that has not yet touched the floor, that player is "out". 
  • Play continues until one team is eliminated. At that point, the referee calls time and awards the winning team one point.
  • The balls are then reset on the centerline and play resumes when the whistle is blown.
  • When time runs out the team to win a majority of games wins the match.
