Background information

  • Since 2005, the Faculty at Newark High School have participated in an annual Dodgeball Tournament sponsored by Student Government. It was decided by the Student Government officers in the Fall of 2006 that a Student Tournament should also take place in order to foster more school spirit amongst the student body while also serving to build interest in the pre-existing Faculty one.

Registration information

  • Each team must have at least eight players, but have no more than ten on their roster.
  • Each team must submit the registration form for their team and pay the registration fee of $20.00 to Mr. Freccia no later than Friday, January 12th. If there are less than four teams participating, your team captain will be notified and the registration money will be refunded the following Monday.
  • Each team member must have had a recent sports physical within the last six months as well as signed permission to participate by a parent or guardian.
  • Students are allowed to play on more than one team, should they want to. However, should those two teams face off that student can not participate. Make sure that your alternates do not have the same conflict of interest or you could be a "man-down" in that particular match.

2007 Tournament Rules

  • Each team can only have eight players "active" for each match. They are also allowed two alternatives who will play in case of injury, conflict of interest with the opponent or in order to rest a teammate. With the exception of injury, teams cannot "sub-in" an alternate during a match.
  • Once a match starts, a team must play with the players on the court. Late arriving teammates, for example, will not be allowed to play once the game clock starts. In cases where one team outnumbers the other, the team that is outnumbered is playing a man down and is not given any special advantage.
  • An "out" is recorded when...
    • A player catches a ball thrown by an opponent that has not bounced
    • A player is hit by a ball thrown by an opponent
    • A player drops a ball thrown by an opponent that has not bounced
    • A player crosses the center court line
    • A player hits someone in the head (the player that threw the ball is ejected from the game)
  • An "out" is not recorded if...
    • The ball bounces off of a wall, ceiling, or bleacher
    • The ball bounces off another player, referee or audience member
    • The ball hits the basketball rim, net, or backboard
    • The ball hits someone in the head
  • Students may re-enter the game when...
    • A teammate catches a ball thrown by an opponent
    • A teammate makes a basket from half-court (if that occurs, all "out" members of a team may return to the game)
  • Any player who displays reckless, or unsportsmanlike, behavior as deemed by the referees will be removed for a period of time decided by the level of infraction (the game, the match, or the entire tournament). Examples of unsportsmanlike behavior include, but are not limited to...
    • Arguing with calls made by the referees
    • Aiming with the intention to hurt another student (going for their legs at close range, taking shorts at the head, etc.)
    • Taunting or fowl language directed at the opponent
  • The first round matches are five minutes long and all are single elimination. Second round matches are five minutes long and in a "round robin" format, meaning all remaining teams play each other once. The two teams with the most wins will then meet in a best-of-three championship round of five minute matches.
  • In all cases, the team with the most number of students on the court as time expires wins the game.
  • Should both teams have the same number of students on the court as time expires, the match will go to "sudden-death." This "sudden-death" period will consist of an extra minute of play.
  • At the end of the "round robin" round, if several teams are tied with the most wins the tiebreaker is head-to-head results.
  • The winning team wins all the registration money for the tournament AND will play the winning team from the Third Annual Faculty Dodgeball Tournament on Friday, January 26th.
