SHOP. DONATE. DODGE.
The NCDA + Campus Causes
October 4, 2018 – To kick off the 2018-2019 season, the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association (NCDA), the official governing body for competitive collegiate dodgeball in the United States, is launching a partnership with Campus Causes to help their 38 active member teams raise more money to assist with their travel, equipment, and gym expenses. Students, coaching staff, friends, family, and alumni can now donate and “shop-to-raise” hundreds of brands with a portion of each purchase going back to their favorite team.

I made a post in the NCDA Capt Club Facebook group asking for the leaders of the teams to pose any questions they may have regarding the NCDA, dodgeball, or me personally. This was just a way to get some fresh content on the NCDA site. So let’s see what they came up with:

THE NCDA TAKES ON THE WORLD!! October 21st-22nd
The World Dodgeball Championships are this weekend, and the NCDA was privileged to receive an invitation to play in this event from Duane Wysynski, President of Dodgeball Canada.
The NCDA will be fielding two teams during this event, USA Blue and USA Red. The two teams are led by two of most experienced dodgeball players in the NCDA. Kenneth Mize (Saginaw Valley) will be leading the USA Blue team, while Jeff Starr (Ohio State) will be leading the USA Red squad. Selecting the teams were hard, we had some long and fierce deliberation between Jeff and Myself. The teams were hard to pick but after a few days we finally figured out our teams. Here I will now go into the depth about the teams and the strengths of each team, also I will include who was our number 1 pick and why for each team.

From the office of the President:
All policies and the bylaws of this organization were updated in early September 2017 prior to the season’s beginning. Final touches were recently added to the bylaws during the first week of October 2017. All policies and bylaws are up-to-date and officially published. Enjoy the read!
The NCDA is partnering with a start-up company called Lucid Travel (lucidtravel.us). They help college club teams raise money by booking hotels using existing travel sites like Priceline, Hotel Planner, & Booking.com. Prices and options are the same but your team gets money back.

This policy proposal was authored in two parts by Felix Perrone and Adam Hynes. Both parties wish to see change to the single-elimination bracket portion of Nationals, but they wish to see things change a bit differently.

On 2017-03-30, the NCDA Executive Board has voted 5-0 in favor of changing the following rule effective immediately.
22.214.171.124 Airborne Balls – All Balls immediately become dead. No Direct Catches or Direct Hits may be made with a Direct Throw that was airborne before the whistle was blown.
126.96.36.199.1 Exception: If a Target is hit, then a Timeout Stoppage of Play is called before the ball is ruled Dead, the Target and his teammates still have the opportunity to complete a Direct Catch or Team Catch. Failure to make a catch will result in the Target being considered out.
New, effective immediately:
188.8.131.52 Airborne Balls – All Balls are live until they become Dead [2.1.5].
184.108.40.206.1 Referee Discretion – If a referee is unable to determine whether a thrown ball was released before the stoppage of play was called, the ball will return to the throwing team. If a thrown ball was released after the stoppage of play, that ball will be returned to the throwing team.
Basically, if a timeout is called, all airborne balls are live until they are dead. If the final whistle blows and balls are in the air, they are still live until they hit the ground/wall/ceiling/whatever.
The 2017 Rulebook has been updated to version 1.1.
Here is the schedule for Nationals 2017. These are not the matchups. This is just the schedule of events. Comment below with your questions.
