A game competed by two teams of between seven to ten players. There are variations of the game, but each involves players trying to avoid being hit by a ball thrown at them by players on the other team.
Game purpose to eliminate opposing players.

The game may be played indoors or outdoors. The playing field should be rectangler and of at least 50 ft long and at least 30 ft wide, divided into two equal sections by a center-line and attack-lines 3m from, and parallel to the centerline.

Dodgeball as a game has no age restrictions, it is played by all ages from early school years upwards. Teams are segregated by age up until adult teams.

A Dodgeball player needs to possess a variety of skills, if the game is to be played well. The ability to run, react, dodge and change direction quickly, as well as the ability to catch and throw powerfully and accurately.

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, or by catching a LIVE ball thrown by your opponent before it touches the ground.

(Definition of a LIVE ball is 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).

The game begins by placing the dodgeballs along the center line 3 on one side and 3 on the other. Players then take a position behind their end line. Following a signal by the official, teams rush to the centerline to retrieve the balls. This signal officially starts the contest. Teams may only retrieve the 3 balls on their side of the center line. Once a ball is retrieved it must be taken behind the attack-line before it can be legally thrown.
