Basic Dodgeball Rules

  • Divide the room into two halves with a center dividing line
  • Place the dodgeballs on the center line and start the players on the back line of each side
  • A player is OUT when hit by a ball from an opposing player that does NOT hit the ground, ceiling, wall, or anyone else
  • A player is OUT if an opposing player catches their thrown ball that does NOT hit the ground, ceiling or wall
  • A player is OUT if any part of their body crosses the center dividing line
  • A player is NOT out if hit anywhere above the shoulders by an opposing player

How to Play Dodgeball:

  • When a player is OUT they go to the right (or left) side of their “side”
  • A team wins when they get everyone on the other team OUT
