We will begin the election as of this post, and officially it will run until Thursday night, giving teams ample time to submit their ballots. I will start bugging people Tuesday afternoon to submit their votes, so we might complete the election sooner rather than later.The NCDA uses a preferential voting system, where candidates are ranked based on preference, and the Votes are public record. The results will be released after the conclusion of the election. Voting is open to all current Member Teams. If there is any confusion, please ask.
For each Office, rank the candidates by your order of preference. Please email one complete ballot to League email (email@example.com), the votes will be counted and verified by the last Director of Nationals, Jude DuPart [OSU Alum].

Captains and Officers:
On the forum you’ll find a couple things relating to the Executive Board. These are very broad overviews of the in-progress Constitution, but the 2014 Board thought they were necessary to establish before voting on the 2015 Board.
First: the board itself. President, Treasurer, Director of League Expansion, Chief of Content, Director of Nationals.
Any new nominations (or declines) on the 2015 Executive Board now that we have established the positions? Nominations since Nationals 2014

- Treasurer: Felix Perrone [WKU Alum]
- Chief of Content: Sean Smith [TU-Pres], Kevin Bailey [GVSU-C?]

Last year we here at Kent State wanted to get together over the summer one day to play massive amounts of Dodgeball. We decided inviting the rest of the NCDA would be a fun idea and it quickly became a success and spawned a second one which ended up being even bigger. This summer we’re doing it again.
Captains and Officers!
Fill it out as soon as possible so we can get going on votes and other summer administrative fun.
Delegate if you must, it isn’t too complicated.
It will take a little bit, but this is a much more efficient way to update the contact list and the bio pages. It will especially save time for our Content team. If you have any questions please let me know.
Good People, I’d like to ask a favor of you. If you have any developer skills, or are a graphic designer, or know of a fellow designer/developer, please let them know the League needs their help!
We are always looking for more hands to be part of our staff. There are plenty of avenues where one could help. Whether you are a current player looking for resume padding or an alumni looking to give back, we have a place for you.
At the moment, it is volunteer work. But it is real honest work that you can credit on your resumes and portfolios. This registered non-profit can write you official Letters of Recommendation and we also include you on the Staff page.
Please, especially if you are graphic designer or a programmer, please consider contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume. Great things arrive faster with talented and driven people working together.
Kevin Bailey [GVSU-4-C]
In regards to Baller of the Month, this player’s name has been floated around multiple times per season. There were many instances where he would have received the reward, but another player qualified just a bit more. Our selection process isn’t very scientific; it’s just a way to showcase a player or a team in the League.
But age old tradition from the Raymer days dictates that April BOTM be the Nationals MVP and National Champion Team Captain. For these reasons, and many more over the course of the season, I’m proud to interview fellow staff member Kevin Bailey… he’s certainly earned it more than once. Continue reading

Good News Everyone,

COLUMBUS – RPAC, Court 4: “the Show”: GVSU def SVSU 3-2 in the 2014 Championship Match of Nationals 2014.

On behalf of the League, congratulations to the team and a special shout out to its graduating members.
Standings for Sunday’s Nationals Bracket.
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 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
