NCDA Nationals 2014 took place this past weekend, and as expected, it was one of the best weekends of the year for everyone involved. I had the privilege to play and spectate so many awesome collegiate dodgeball games this weekend, and it made me more than excited for the future of this league. Here are some of my reactions to what took place this weekend. Continue reading

Hello Fellow Dodgeballers and Debaucher-ers!
DePaul lady dodgeballers here.
We’ve recently been made aware of a NCDA-related twitter account called “Dodgestitutes” with the description as follows, “Dodging balls and stalking players since 2013.” We are sure that some of you are already familiar with this account as it has been active for around a month now (we’re a little slow on the draw here, okay?). While this account claims to be all in good fun, unfortunately it is not fun for everyone who is associated with the account, whether they ask to be or not. It’s our personal impression that by labelling the ladies of the NCDA as groupies, stalkers, hoes, and most prominently prostitutes, this account belittles our impact and role as athletes and equal players in the NCDA.

In the following sections, Teams participating at Nationals 2014 may find six pool options on which they may vote.
*Please do not submit one option, as this is not a winner-take-all system.
Please email your votes to the League email by 11:59pm Thurs, April 10th. One submission per team. *The vote must have eight Nationals Participants in order to be considered valid: that is a majority and therefore a Quorum of Member Teams. Continue reading

The second part of a two part podcast. This episode, #36, previews potential matchups for this upcoming weekend. Also covering a little bit about the all-star game, ladies match, and potential Sunday matchups. Join Sean, Zigmas, and Dylan, Kevin, Spencer, and Wes as they wet everyone’s appetite for dodgeball!
The pools discussed in this podcast are not the actual pools, but pretty close to what they should be.
A two part podcast for nationals. This first episode, #35, will be from an administrative perspective. Join Zigmas and Sean Smith as be completely off topic and discuss March Madness. Then they launch into who’s coming, how the Rulebook discussion might go, a little about the All Star Game as well as the available hours for Nationals. Next AJP should be a release party for the Nationals 2014 Schedule!
Captains, please get your All Stars together. Please submit 4 players by April 1st.
Please choose 4 players that best represent your team. (I’d recommend having your club perform a preferential vote)
True All Stars are welcome, these are the male AND female dodgeballers that are the best representatives of your team, in whatever way you want to represent that (competitive, great attitude, leadership, trick shot master, etc).
The NCDA is a coed League: do not skip out on the Lady Dodgeballers just because they also have their own Ladies game. If they deserve it they would be in both games. In that same light, do not leave out a player because you don’t want them to get hurt, or too tired from an extra 30 minutes of play. This is not in the Spirit of the Game! This is fun!

Max Siler is in his second season as the captain for Saginaw Valley State. Recently, Max led his team to undefeated records in the Michigan Dodgeball Cup, and DePaul University Invite. SVSU currently boasts a 10-game win streak, thanks in large part to the efforts of their captain. Over the past few years Max Siler has developed into a star player for SVSU, and he is a very deserving recipient of “Baller of the Month”. Continue reading
