Confirmation emails

We recently upgraded our hosting package (the amount of people playing dodgeball required us to make some improvements behind the scenes) and for that reason some email confirmations have been sending out again (an unfortunate side effect).

If you got one of these emails and already took care of whatever it asked you to, please ignore it. You should notice improvements to the speed and stability of our website as well.

Thank you!

Space is filling up quick!

We have had a record number of teams register so far given how much time is left in the registration period. For example, over 21 teams have registered for Sunday evenings! Gym space is limited, and while we do attempt to find more when we fill up, we cannot guarantee we will be able to especially given that most community centers will be minimally staffed and scheduling with them will be difficult.

Don’t miss out – sign up now and make sure you get to play on the night you want!

We have more winners!

A big congratulations to the following division winners:

Thursdays:

That’s so Fetch (Women’s)

Heatwave (Men’s Competitive)

Make sure to check back when we announce the date of our Fall windup, as that is where winning teams will collect their beer and medals. We hope to see everyone back next season!

Small rules updates for the Winter 2019 season

One of our organizational goals is to align Dodgeball Winnipeg with the rest of the leagues worldwide that play WDBF format. We want to make sure our league is consistent in style with other leagues so Dodgeball as a sport is played the same no matter where you are.

For this reason, we are enacting the following changes for the Winter 2019 season:

  1. A ball will not be considered out of bounds until you can visibly see the floor between the ball and the sideline. This means ball retrievers can no longer grab a ball that is touching the line.
  2. Sudden death loss will be renamed Overtime Loss, and teams will only receive this point if they play a tie-breaker that goes beyond regulation time. For regular league play this means playing a sudden-death tie-breaker. For competitive divisions this means teams will only receive a point if they go into the 4 minute overtime round AFTER they play sudden death at the end of the second half.
  3. We have changed the priorities in our standings so that number of wins will be more important than rounds won when tie breaking.
    As it currently stands, the priorities are as follows: Points, Goal Differential, Goals For (in that order)
    Starting in winter it will be: Points, Goal Differential, Number of Wins, Goals For (in that order)
  4. Goal differential will be renamed score differential

 

 

Update:

A quick update:

Games will not be cancelled because of the snow this evening, please drive safely and according to conditions. Expect it to take twice as long as normal to commute to the gym tonight.

If you will be late for your game, please come anyway! The people who made it to the gym still want to play, so even if you end up delayed please come out to play tonight!

Playoffs:

Sunova Sundays semi-finals schedule is complete.

Monday final schedule is complete.

Tuesdays are over, congratulations to Odin’s Bastards and Dead Pixels for winning their respective divisions!

Thursday’s schedule is complete

We made Thursday’s schedule yesterday in the late morning, and left it up in case there were any issues.

One issue was found (OKCU was incorrectly placed in the championship game) but other than that it is good to go.

You can consider what is on the schedule page to be accurate.

We have begun work on the Thursday schedule

You may notice the Thursday schedule for this week appearing, disappearing, and moving around.

We will post publicly when the schedule is complete. There are lots of moving parts in the Thursday championship schedule and we will be working on it on and off all day. Thank you!
