What You Can Expect

We are using FOAM dodgeballs! The dodgeball has a SOFT coating and SOFT inner foam to reduce the chance of injury. You'll play a minimum of 4 games a night and gym-style pickup games after league games end.

Additional Info

This is DRAFT league. Register as an individual and be drafted onto a team. No full teams are allowed.

Each Night you will have 4 10-minute games. At the conclusion of 'league games' each week we will play pickup games where we mix teams up and all play different styles of dodgeball together.

This is a Bar Champs League: At the end of the night, make your way down to our sponsor bar, The Dark Horse Tavern! (5-minute drive). There is where we play our bar games, hang out with league members and have some drinks.


Scoring: You play as many games as possible within the 10-minute match. The team scores points based on the number of people that are left on your team when the game ends. For example, if my team won with 3 people in game one, lost with 2 people left in game 2, and won game 3 with 1 person left my team would have won the match 4-2.

Join our Facebook Group "Dodgeball on Long Island' to find teammates, get info about tournaments and share their favorite Dodgeball memes. Free agents and small groups can expect to receive their team assignments one week prior to the start of the league.


Theme Week starts February 5th. Theme week is a massive competition between all teams in LI-Kick. This season's theme is "Pajama Party".

If part of your team is unable to attend, and you have less than the required amount of players, you are allowed to bring a sub during the regular season. Only rostered players may participate in the playoffs.

No processing fees! The price you see is the price you pay

Frequently Asked Questions

Nope! Most of our leagues and tournaments allow you to join as a free agent or with one or with a group of friends (while being kept together), in fact, most first time players join this way. When you register we'll ask a few simple questions and we'll do our best to fill out your roster with players like you. That said, the free agent pool for some leagues, like cornhole are limited so your best bet is to join with a friend and form a complete team.

Generally, registration covers the cost of equipment, facility use, umpires/refs and a team shirt. You'll also be given access to the various social events we host and sponsor throughout the year.

Rules

RULES

These Are the LI-Kick Dodgeball Rules. However they may not cover every situation. Unless otherwise specified in these unique situations we will follow USA Dodgeball Rules which can be found here USA Dodgeball - Rules.

Key Rule Changes/Most Confused Rules:

  • There are no momentum catches
  • All lines are hard lines stepping on a line(even a toe) will result in an out(Includes sidelines, backlines and center line) 
  • Every throw by the attacking team will reset burden count but if a defending team throws burden count does not reset.
  • Arguing with refs, not respecting calls will result in cards that can be given out at league director or coordinator discretion based on recommendations of referees. 
  • Games will not start with less then 30 seconds left on the play clock during the regular season

PLAYERS

  • Teams consist of 6 players per game. 
  • Legal Line-Up: There must be always at least 2 girls on the court 4M/2F to start a game (subject to change based on sign-ups and will be detailed in Week 1 email)
  • If a team cannot produce a legal line-up that team will be allowed to play short-handed (less than 6 on the court)
  • A female player can play in place of a male player but not a male player in place of a female.
  • During the regular season, subs are allowed in the case that players cannot play. For subs during the postseason contact the league director before the night of playoffs.
  • On a catch, the players come back in from the order in which they were out with the subs from the team being the first players in while following gender rules. 

MATCH-

  • All Teams will arrive at the same time and play 4- 10-minute games each night. To stay on time teams must line up as quickly as possible.
  • We will be rotating matchups each week so make sure you check your schedule weekly
  • Each game will be played with a 10-minute timer. You will be able to fit as many matches as possible within the 10 minutes for each opponent. 
  • No new game will be started with 30 seconds or less left. 
  • In the event of any 1 v 1 situation where nobody is throwing the ball, we will go to a no-blocking rule that is at the discretion of the referee. 

RUSH 

  • Each game will start with players touching the backline with a side ready countdown. All players can start running after hearing “dodgeball” in the “side ready, side ready, dodgeball” countdown.
  • When the referee starts the game, the team may only go for the balls on their right side of the court.
  • For balls to be thrown during opening rush, balls must be cleared back 5 feet (at the discretion of the refs) before throwing the ball on opening rush. After clearing the 5 feet once, players may then go up to the centerline to throw the ball.
  • If there is a false start, each team will receive their 3 balls and then the game will resume when all balls are cleared.

Throw Clock/BURDEN- Which team has to throw.

  • Once the burden is established, count starts. Burden is established when all balls on the burden side are on the court or held by teammates along the sidelines.
  • If balls are off the court, the throw clock will start when balls are possessed by players of the team that is playing, whether that be playing or shagging. The throw clock will start even if the side without burden is waiting for balls to return to the court.
  • The throw clock starts at 10 seconds counted down at the discretion of the referee
  • Failure of a team not resetting burden before the throw clock reaches zero seconds will forfeit all balls to the opposing team
  • How to determine Burden-
  • The home team has burden first to start games
  • The winner of the game prior will start with burden the next game
  • Burden only resets when the side with burden throws a ball. It does not reset when the defending side throws during the burden countdown. 
  • Burden is determined by
  • Majority of balls (more than 3 on one side) 
  • Majority of players(if both sides have 3 balls)
  • Whoever didnt throw last(if both sides have same amount of balls and players and Team A threw last Team B has to throw)
  • Burden Resets when a ball is thrown by the attacking team

OUTS 

  • I. A player will be deemed out when: 
  • They are hit with a live ball. (Clothing is considered part of the body.) or
  • They are struck by a ball that bounces off a teammate or a ball a teammate possesses or
  • They throw a ball, and it is caught before it hits the floor, the wall, or the ceiling or
  • They step or fall outside of the boundaries including, Sidelines, backlines, and the centerline( HARD LINES, Stepping on a line means you are out) or
  • They drop the ball they are possessing when trying to block a ball thrown at them (see blocking) or 
  • Trapping a ball- a trap is when the ball hits a player and the ground at the same time 

BLOCKING 

  • Players can defend themselves from a ball by blocking with another ball
  • No part of the thrown ball can hit any part of the players’ body (including the hand and fingers)
  • The player must also maintain control of the ball they blocked with
  • A player that drops the balls as a result to the block, will be deemed out.

BOUNDARIES 

  • The dimensions of the court will be the size of the volleyball court. 
  • Players must remain in the dimensions of the court at all times. 
  • Players that have been knocked out or teams that are not playing are expected to retrieve balls. It will be strongly encouraged for active players to always stay within the boundaries. 
  • When returning in from a catch, players are eligible to get hit once they have one point of contact in bounds and must enter through the back line. 
  • A player must make first contact within the boundaries when catching a ball and land in bounds. If the catch is made while falling out of bounds the catch will count and they will be out.
  • Players may only step over the centerline on opening rush
