AJP #35: Nationals 2014 Preview #1

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!


2014 All Star Selection!

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!

A Fresh View on Nationals


This past weekend the NCDA held its National Tournament at the University of Kentucky. This was not only my first Nationals, but Towson’s first as well. As a second year team we had wanted to attend last year’s Nationals at Saginaw Valley, but we did not have the funding available to go. This past weekend was a spectacle in my mind that can only ever be imitated, but never duplicated.  Continue reading “A Fresh View on Nationals”
