Summer locations

For those wondering about our plans for the summer season:

Sunday Draft, Platinum and Gold will move to Dakota Field house. Should we exceed 8 draft teams the time will remain 4-6pm and we will run 1-2 games at EECC. There will be no 3pm draft games in the summer.

Sunday Bronze and Silver may remain at Elmwood, or may play at Field house. This is as-yet undetermined and will depend on registration numbers.

Mondays will play at East Elmwood CC.

Tuesdays will be at Dakota Field house

Wednesdays will be at Sinclair Park CC

Thursdays will be at Dakota Field house. Men’s division will remain on Thursdays. Women’s division will take a break for the summer and return in fall.

Men’s division will remain on Thursdays

We have had 6 teams reach out to us to say their preference is for Men’s division to remain on Thursdays, for this reason Men’s will not be moving to Tuesdays.

Thank you everyone for your responses, see you this Summer!

Men’s team captains – we need to hear from you!

We recently posted up that we were planning to move Men’s division to Tuesday nights – in an effort to spur registration beyond the normal 4-5 teams that register. After doing so, we were informed that numerous new men’s teams were hoping to register for Thursdays in the summer.

We have space on Tuesdays and Thursdays and will run Men’s Competitive on whichever night is more popular, or both nights if there is enough interest.

If you are a captain of a men’s team: please send an email to info@dodgeballwinnipeg.com to let us know your team’s name, and if you would prefer to sign up Tuesdays, Thursdays, or both.

We will make an announcement as soon as we have heard from the captains.

Registration for Summer opens May 27th

We will be opening up registration for Summer season May 27th at Noon.

There will be a few small changes for the Summer season.

  1. Simpsons puns will be the theme. Include a pun that references the television show “The Simpsons” in some fashion, and we will donate $25 of your team fees to D’arcy’s ARC no-kill animal shelter.
  2. Women’s division will not be happening this Summer, it will be taking a break and returning in the fall.
  3. Men’s division will move to Tuesday nights at Dakota Fieldhouse – we are re-evaluating this decision pending the input from men’s teams

Dates of the season can be found on our “Important Dates” page.

Dakota Fieldhouse Housekeeping/special rules

An email to all Tuesday and Thursday captains was sent out with the following information:

All games Tuesdays and Thursdays are played at Dakota Fieldhouse, and there are some housekeeping items we wanted to get out of the way:

  1. Please bring ball-retrievers! Showing up to a game with just enough players to play is not enough people. You will need at least one person to retrieve balls that go out of bounds for your team. Ideally 2-3 people. It’s okay for players who are not playing that round to retrieve balls, or ones that are knocked out, but showing up to a game with exactly 6 people will be insufficient and majorly impact your experience as active players are not permitted to walk out of bounds to retrieve a ball. If you’re short on players, try reaching out to teams that play before or after you and offer to retrieve balls for them in exchange for them retrieving balls for you
  2. Bounceback rule To keep things fair, since some courts have a wall ~10ft behind the back line and others have a curtain ~6ft behind the back line, we have a rule in place where balls that rebound off the rear boundary have to stay/be returned to the side they were thrown at. However, both captains can agree to forego this rule before the match begins. To do so, both captains must approach the referee together to inform them that they want to allow bouncebacks and not require them to be given back. If even one captain does not wish to forego this rule though, it will stand
  3. Food and drinks that are not water must be kept outside the gymnasium. There are lots of tables there, your food/drinks will be safe there.
  4. Drop-ins will be run 7-9pm Tuesdays and 7:30-9:30pm Thursdays (except April 18th). Any players who wish to play in the drop-ins are permitted to do so, and if they have a team that plays that night and can only attend one hour of drop-in, will be permitted to do so for just $5, however they will not be permitted to preregister. Payment will have to be made in person to the referee running the drop-in. Drop-ins will primarily take place on the court nearest the main entrance. Please inform your teammates of this opportunity.

Schedule update

Women’s teams are complete, emails have been sent to all players informing them of their team and captain’s info.

We will begin work on Thursday schedules this evening.

Sundays up to May 26 have been completed, and the remaining two dates (June 2 and June 9) will come after we have done significant work on the Thursday schedules.
