CFCC Summer Dodgeball Classic Rules Update

By Jbrause | In News & Events | on August 9, 2016

Dodge, duck, dip, dive, dodge.

Hey all,

Our first annual CrossFit Coolidge Corner Summer Dodgeball Classic is coming up this Friday! If you missed our first announcement,  this Friday at 6pm (in place of the 6pm class) we’ll be holding a dodgeball tournament, no sign-up necessary. If you’d like to bring any snacks or BYOB feel free.

Some more details for you though- to keep things simple we’ll establish a bracket and teams once we’re all there, depending on attendance team size will likely be 4-6/team and rules will break down as follows (as taken from NADA, the National Amateur Dodgeball Association):

THE GAME

The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them “OUT”. This may be done by:
1. Hitting an opposing player with a LIVE thrown ball below the shoulders.
2. 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).

BOUNDARIES

During play, all players must remain within the boundary lines. Players may leave the boundaries through their end-line only to retrieve stray balls. They must also return through their end-line.

TIMING AND WINNING A GAME

The first team to legally eliminate all opposing players will be declared the winner. A three-minute time limit has been established for each contest. If neither team has been eliminated at the end of the three minutes, the team with the greater number of players remaining will be declared the winner. Details on overtime can be found in the NADA Rule Book.

TIME-OUTS & SUBSTITUTIONS

Each team will be allowed one 30-second timeout per game. At this time a team may substitute players into the game.

5-SECOND VIOLATION

In order to reduce stalling, a violation will be called if a team in the lead controls all six balls on their side of the court for more than five seconds. This also applies to teams in a tie situation. More details can be found in the NADA Rule Book

RULE ENFORCEMENT

During pool play or regular-season matches, rules will be enforced primarily by the “honor system”*. Players will be expected to rule whether or not a hit was legal or whether they were legally eliminated. All contests will be supervised by a court monitor*. The court monitor’s responsibility will be to rule on any situation in which teams cannot agree. THE COURT MONITOR’S DECISION IS FINAL – NO EXCEPTIONS.

Guess who the court monitor is.

This is serious business guys. See you there, best bring your A-game. The only thing at stake is everlasting glory for the winners and the shameful sting of dodgeballs for everyone else.
