Dodgeball Continues

After reviewing the new restrictions in place, and discussing with the gymnasiums to be certain, we will be able to proceed with games. The new restrictions drop the capacity for venues from 50% to 25% for spectator areas, but since we have been operating with 0% allowance for spectators we are already going above and beyond the current limitations.
We are more than half way through the season, with over 100 events run and no exposures at Dodgeball thus far. We will continue to remain vigilant with respect to sanitation and health measures, and look forward to finishing the season as planned by Mid-November.
When the season is finished teams will be surveyed as to how/when everyone would like to proceed with the next season, and we will use that information to plan if/when/how we operate in 2021.
Thank you!

New Winnipeg Restrictions – what they mean for Dodgeball

We are currently following the Government of Manitoba’s presser with respect to the new Covid-19 restrictions.

We will announce through official channels what this means for Dodgeball once we have discussed with our gym partners as well as once we have clarification from the government. After the increase to Orange there were numerous “clarifications” that walked back many restrictions that appeared to be in place, so we will take more time to clarify before anything is announced, which will be, at the earliest, 24 hours from now.

So far Dodgeball Winnipeg has run roughly 100 Dodgeball games without incident this season – meaning there has been no exposure at any Dodgeball Winnipeg event, no contract traced to a dodgeball game, and we credit this to the community going above and beyond with respect to hygiene, distancing, respecting measures in place and most importantly staying home when symptomatic or potentially exposed. There is roughly one month of games left in the Dodgeball season, and we will make sure that we act responsibly, ethically, and with respect to the players as well as the rules in place.
