The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them "OUT". This may be done by:
Hitting an opposing player with a LIVE thrown ball below the shoulders.
Catching a LIVE ball thrown by your opponent before it touches the ground. Definition: LIVE: A ball that has been thrown and has not touched anything, including the floor/ground, another ball, another player, official or other item outside of the playing field (wall, ceiling, etc)
During play, all players must remain within the boundary lines.
Players may leave the boundaries through their end-line only to retrieve stray balls.
Players must return through their end-line.
Uniforms- Teams must wear the same shirt.
Ball- The official ball used in tournament and league play will be an 8.25" rubber-coated foam ball.
Shoes - All games are scheduled to play on a grass field. Footwear should be appropriate to the field of play.
Official Rules Team
Teams can have 6-10 players. Six (6) players will compete on a side; others will be available as substitutes.
Substitutes may enter the game only during timeouts or in the case of injury.
Each team may have up to 10 players
6 players must start each game
Each team may set their own formations but there must be at least 3 players within 10 yards of the dividing line
Game begins by placing the dodgeballs along the center line – three (3) on one side of the center hash and three (3) on the other.
Players then take a position behind their end line. Following a signal by the official, teams may approach the centerline to retrieve the balls. This signal officially starts the contest.
Teams may only retrieve the three (3) balls to their right of the center hash.
Once a ball is retrieved, it must be taken behind the attack-line before it can be legally thrown.
Players are “out” of the game when hit on a fly below the shoulders or when their thrown ball is caught on a fly.
A 15-minute time limit has been established for each contest, consisting of: (2) 5-minute halves, (1) 30 second time outs per team, (1) 2 minute warm-up
6 balls in play at same time
First team to eliminate all members of the opposing team within regulation wins a game. (If neither team has been eliminated at the end of the 10 minutes, the team with the greater number of players remaining will be declared the winner).
Rules enforced by court monitors using the “honor system” and player code of conduct
Each team will be allowed one (1) 30 second timeout per game. However the game clock continues to run.
5-SECOND VIOLATION -In order to reduce stalling, a violation will be called if a team in the lead controls all six (6) balls on their side of the court for more than 5 seconds. This also applies to tied teams.
Stalling teams will lose one player, which will be chosen by the opposing team.
The game clock will stop for 5 seconds but play will continue.
Rules will be enforced primarily by the "honor system”. All contests will be supervised by a court monitor*. The responsibility of the court monitor will be to rule on any situation in which teams cannot agree.
THE COURT MONITOR’S DECISION IS FINAL – NO EXCEPTIONS
Competition Forfeitures and Elimination
Because the 6-on-6 Dodgeball Tournament is a double elimination tournament, teams forfeiting their first game in the tournament are forfeited out of the tournament.
If a team forfeits a game after having already played a game or games in the tournament, that forfeit will be counted as a loss.
Awards Awards will be given to Division Champions
