No wrenches to dodge in this league


  • Teams are comprised of six individuals on the floor - at least two must be female
  • The league will be segmented into Upper and Lower divisions if we have enough teams register for each
  • Matches last 40 minutes - the team winning the most games takes the match
  • MSSC supplies balls, referees, and team t-shirts
  • Six game regular season, followed by the playoffs
  • Download the Rulebook in the grey menu bar toward the top of the page for full details on the format and rules


League Size/Capacity


  • Leagues typically have a capacity of nine teams and sometimes sell out in advance of any posted registration deadlines. Some leagues may be capped at seven teams depending on how much time we have available. Don't wait until the last minute to register if you want to play.
  • We won't run a dodgeball league with fewer than six teams, so please select an alternate day of the week during registration in the event we need to cancel the night you registered for. It's been almost 20 years since "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" hit theaters, and the sport isn't as popular as it once was.


Registration deadline: Generally one week prior to the start date (if not already sold out).


Divisions and Skill Level


There is no guarantee we will be able to segment any given league into separate divisions, and all teams may end up in the same division. Teams self-select their skill level, subject to MSSC approval. Be honest about your skill level, as teams of very low skill level do not enjoy getting blown out by highly skilled teams, and it makes the league look bad for allowing that type of skill disparity to occur. We will be moving away from "Upper" and "Lower" divisions, as those labels don't fit well in dodgeball. We will be creating divisions with random names and assigning teams to them as best as we're able.


Individual Sign Up Information


  • The need for Individuals (or "free agents") varies from season to season. Some years we place a lot of them, some years we don't. You are not charged unless we place you on a team, so there's no harm in signing up
  • Men: We typically are not able to place many males who register as Individuals because most teams are not looking for additional males. You could end up on a "free agent" team though
  • Ladies: If you want to be placed on a team, it's best to sign up on your own and NOT request to be placed with a male, as there is a much smaller chance a team will pick you up if you want to play with a guy.
  • Please note that you will not be contacted unless we are able to get you on a team.


Don't register for multiple nights if you aren't able to play on multiple nights. We count on all free agents being available for any and all nights for which they register. If you're able to play on multiple nights but only want to play one, register for the night you prefer and check the boxes for other nights you're available during registration.


Dates and Locations

Fall leagues begin in late October or early November. Winter leagues normally begin at various times in January.

  • Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 league locations: Primarily Lincoln and Thoreau Elementary Schools. There are a few random dates at other schools




Since it's asked all the time: Schedules are posted a few days after registration closes. If you signed up for Tuesday nights, your team plays on Tuesdays nights, and you should be available for any time slot.


Prizes and Other Benefits

  • These can change from season to season and will be communicated to all teams via email
