Month: August 2017

Drop ins

Another reminder drop ins are no longer happening Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our drop in registration page was updated indicating that the Tuesday and Thursday drop ins were cancelled.

The ONLY drop in events currently available are the charity sock drive events, which you can find by going to our schedule page and clicking drop in. This will take you to the Facebook event pages for these events.


Survey results are in!

The survey on the future of stat keepers received 100 responses, which broke down as follows:

We are going to implement the option the community chose (each team is required to provide a stat keeper for the hour opposite the one they play), and blend it with the second option of a raffle each week.

The cost of draft will be increased by $0.95 which gives us just over $120 to buy merch/shwag for the people who do keep stats each week. In addition, at the end of the season all stat keepers who kept stats at least 5 times will be entered into a draw for half price draft the next season (OR a $30 DW gift code if they are not playing draft), and the stat keeper who keeps stats the most times (5 times minimum) will win a red DW hoodie (we will permit ties, so if multiple people tie for most stats kept, they will all win hoodies).

Captains will be contacted each week to find out who they have wrangled for stats, and any team that does not organize a stat keeper for the slot they’re responsible for will receive scores of 0 for their stats that week. We will put together a calendar so that teams can organize their stat keeping responsibilities as far in advance as they wish.

Thanks again to everyone for your input! We will be opening up draft registration soon. 64 slots will be reserved for the returning players from this summer, and 64 more slots will be opened to the public right away. On August 31st any reserved slots that are unused will be opened the public as well.

Premier league makes a comeback!

Premier league is coming back this fall! It will look a bit different from last time, but will offer that same top level of competition you have come to expect. This will not affect regular league play

  1. It will be run on a 30’x60′ court in a 49’x80′ gymnasium, meaning there are boundaries on all sides with ~10′ of extra space around all sides
  2. There will be no gender minimums. This will allow men’s and women’s provincial teams to practice together in real game situations
  3. There will likely be nets behind each team’s rear out line
  4. Teams will be required to bring their own ball shagger(s) each game, the league will not provide these and they are necessary to keep the balls in play so be prepared!
  5. This is not for the faint of heart! There will be teams here who compete at the national level, and this is our way of catering to the competitive community
  6. It will run Wednesday nights 7:00-10:00pm, meaning there is only room for 6 teams
  7. Cost will be $595 during early bird, $645 after the early bird deadline is passed
  8. There will be 2 referees, but we still expect you to be honest. The extra ref is because people will now also be called for stepping out of bounds on the back lines and the extra set of eyes will help keep track of this
  9. Due to setup and teardown of nets, games will have 20 minute halves (the WDBF standard) instead of 25 minutes (the DW standard)

Long weekend update

With August long coming up, there are no games on Sunday or Monday. Enjoy your time off, we will be away as well and respond to inquiries when we return.

Also, Thursday drop-ins have been cancelled for the summer and will return between seasons. Future drop-ins will happen when we have empty gym space, and between seasons.

Have fun, we’ll be back on Tuesday!
