rules

Reporting

Each participating team must report to the registration desk at the VIU Gym by 

7:45am on Saturday, October 22, 2016. Transportation will be provided between 

the Coast Bastion Hotel and the VIU campus. We encourage the participants to 

dress in school colors.

The Game: Obstacle Dodgeball

The objective of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by:

 

Hitting the opponent player with a live 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 plater, official, or other item outside of the playing 
field (wall, ceiling, etc.). Obstacles do not neutralize a live ball.

Obstacle dodgeball is played like standard dodgeball except there are slight 

variations to the court (see Court and Boundaries). Divided into three zones 

(Zone A, Zone B, and Zone C), the “neutral zone” (Zone C) will feature multiple 

inflatable obstacles accessible to both teams at all times throughout the game. 

Objects are considered part of the court which means they do not neutralize a 

thrown dodgeball (ie. deflections off obstacles keep the dodgeball live and could 

therefore eliminate a player).

Rules and decisions will be carried out at the referee’s discretion. Arguing with 

game officials will not be tolerated and may lead to deductions in the overall 

Spirit Score of a team. During the match the referee has the right to prevent 

stalling (ie. one team may not hold all balls for an extended period of time). This 

is to uphold the spirit of the MBA Games virtues of competition.

Court and Boundaries

During play, all players must remain within the boundary lines. Players may only 

leave the boundaries of their end-line in order to retrieve stray balls. Each game 

will have 2 designated volunteers to retrieve dodgeballs which roll out of the 

court (1 volunteer per team).

ZONE A

ZONE B

ZONE C

Team Structure

(i) Teams will consist of 6 players on the court at the beginning of each round

(ii) 6 players are required to start and continue the match

(iii) Each game must begin with a minimum of 2 male and 2 female competitors

(iv) Substitutions may not be made during the course of a game

 

A team may make substitutions between each game

 

Only one of the six starting players in a game may re-enter upon a 

 

 caught ball (see outs)

 

Teams can consist of a max of 12 members

Opening Rush

Game begins by placing the dodgeballs along the center line – six in total. Players 

then take a position behind their end line. Following a signal by the official, teams 

may approach the centerline to retrieve the balls. The signal officially kicks off 

the competition. Once a ball is retrieved, it must be taken outside of the neutral 

zone (Zone C) before it can be legally thrown.

Outs

An out is considered legal in the game when:

(i) A live ball hits any part of the player’s body, clothing, or uniform below the 

head. If a player crouches or takes a position with their head below their standing 

shoulder height (ie. Kneeling, sitting, diving, rolling), the player is out and the 

throw is considered legal.

(ii) A player throws a ball that hits an opponent, who is standing upright, above 

the shoulder; the player who threw the ball is OUT.

NaNaimo | october 2016

(iii) A live thrown ball is caught by a defending player; the player who threw the 

ball is OUT

 

If a player catches a ball thrown by the opposing team, they may return  

 

one player from the bench, assuming they have less than 6 players in play

 

The defending team shall choose which player returns to the court

(iv) Should a catch be made after the ball has hit a player but not yet deemed 

“dead” (ie. Hit the ground, roof, walls), the catch is legal and only the thrower is 

OUT

(v) A legal catch must be made in the court of play

(vi) A player touching the line denoting the end of their team’s “zone” with any 

part of the foot or any other part of the body

(vii) A ball makes contact with an obstacle and then rebounds onto a player 

without being neutralized (ie. hits the ground, another dodgeball, etc.)

When a player is OUT, they must immediately drop any balls in hand and exit 

the court. Once a ball touches the floor, sidewall, or anything else that is not a 

person or obstacle in the game, an OUT cannot be scored.

Round-Robin

The event will begin with a single Round-Robin schedule; each team will play 

against every other team once.

Round-Robin matches will be played within fifteen-minute (15) periods of time 

featuring as many games as possible

 

The team to win the most matches and at least two games shall be   

 

declared the winner of the match; all additional game wins add to the total  

 

round-win score

 

If a Round-Robin match is not completed prior to the elapse of 15    

 

minutes, the team with the most remaining players shall be declared the  

 winner

 

 

- In the case where equal players remain in a given game, a 

 

 

sudden-death will begin where the next player to be eliminated  

 

 

ends the game

There will be a 60-second break between each game as to allow a reset of the 

court and substitutions to be made if necessary

A game is won when one team has eliminated all players from the opposing team

Playoffs

All teams will advance to playoffs following the Round-Robin

Seeding positions for playoffs are determined by total points earned during the 

Round-Robin

 

Points are won as follows:

 

 

3 points for each round win

 

 

1 point for a tie

 

 

0 points for a loss

 

 

 

In the event of a tie for points following the Round-Robin,  

 

 

 

 

seeding will be prioritized by total round win

Playoff matches are best of five (5) games

 

The first team to win three (3) games shall be declared the winner of the    

     

match

Each Playoff game will have a five-minute (5) time limit

 

If five (5) minutes have elapsed and a game is still in progress, the team    

 

 with the most remaining players is declared the winner

 

 

In the case where 5 minutes has elapsed and both teams have  

 

 

    

 equal players remaining, “sudden death” overtime occurs until the   

 

   

 first player on either team is eliminated

  

Important: match wins (last game of a match) cannot be ended   

 

   

with players on both teams remaining. (ie. a team’s 3 rd win is not    

 

 

declared at the end of five minutes if players on the opposing team    

 

 

remain) This is to prevent stalling.

There will be a 2-minute break between each game as to allow a reset of the 

court and substitutions to be made if necessary

A game is won when one team has eliminated all players from the opposing team

These are subject to change based on any disruptions, updates to competition rules, or 

team additions
