Game Format

  • All Dodgeball Leagues are single-opponent; teams will play one match per week.
  • All Dodgeball Leagues use a Games Coordinator (GC).
  • All Dodgeball Leagues use a weekly time slot of 1.00 hour.
    • Each match is 60 minutes long including a 5 minute warm-up and a 5 minute half time.
    • A match consists of as many games that can be completed in the 50 minutes of playing time. No single game can exceed 5 minutes.
    • A game is won when one team eliminates all of the opposing players on the court. Each game is worth one point.
    • The team with the most games won during the time slot wins the match.
      • For regular season games, if the match ends and both teams have the same amount of games won, the match will be recorded as a tie.

  • When registering a full team, there is no limit to the maximum number of players you can have on the roster.
  • Prior to the first game of the season, teams must have 6 players confirmed on the roster in MyCSSC. This number is equal to the total number of players required on the court in the above chart.
    • If the minimum amount of confirmed roster players is not met, the team will receive a loss for every game played until the requirement is met.
    • Minimum female requirements are inclusive of anyone who identifies as female (i.e. players who identify as M or X do not count towards F minimums).
  • Prior to the first playoff game, teams must have all players who are playing in the playoff game(s) displayed as part of the confirmed roster in MyCSSC.
    • If this requirement is not met, teams will receive an automatic loss and will not be eligible for the championship.
