About Dodgeball - Court Leagues at Average Joe Sports Club
Our Dodgeball Leagues in Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga and Hamilton create a friendly and fun atmosphere where you can enjoy playing that popular game we all remember from grade school gym class. The sting of those big rubber balls is something all kids remember. However, since the release of the 2004 movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story starring Vince Vaughan and Ben Stiller, dodgeball has grown exponentially in popularity as an adult sport. Who can forget “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!”? (By-the-way, we do not recommend throwing wrenches at anyone to practice for our Dodgeball leagues or Dodgeball Tournaments.)
In our Dodgeball leagues and tournaments, we have changed the rules slightly to make the game a little safer and fun. The main difference is the ball. We use a soft ball (like a dense Nerf ball) with a latex coating. This means that you can throw the ball quite hard, but when it hits you it doesn’t hurt.
We offer two level of dodgeball leagues; recreational dodgeball and intermediate dodgeball. Our recreational dodgeball league is for players/teams that are new to dodgeball or who have played before and look to play at a recreational level. Our intermediate dodgeball league is for players/teams that have played before and feel comfortable stepping up a level or for individuals that are strong throwers.
Dodgeball is a great sport for so many different types of players/teams. It is a great sport for company teams that have a wide range of interests and athletic abilities. People just looking to get involved in a fun activity really enjoy it because unlike most sports (where you will be going against some that have been playing the sport their whole lives), most people are relatively new to dodgeball (at least as an adult). People who are looking for a fun time while still getting a good workout love this game. People who are new to the game are often surprised by the great workout you get. You are constantly moving when you are on the court.
As one of the favourite sports leagues in Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga and Hamilton, Average Joe Sports Club started offering dodgeball in fall of 2007. We have now grown to be THE league for Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, and Hamilton dodgeball. In addition to our Dodgeball leagues, Average Joe Sports Club also runs dodgeball tournaments. We run a fall dodgeball tournament (in October/November) and a winter/spring dodgeball tournament (in February/March/April) each year. We have teams drive in from surrounding areas like Hamilton, London and Toronto to take part in these fun and exciting dodgeball tournaments – and many end up joining for the upcoming season to play in our dodgeball leagues.
