Traditionally hosts the Chicago Dodgeball Open. Additionally, DePaul Dodgeball hosts the May Day Dodgeball Rally after Nationals. This event is conducted in a hat tournament style, with a general invitation to anyone to play.

DePaul Dodgeball is proudly co-ed, the oldest team in the League, and predates the NCDA. DePaul has also been steadily involved in refining NCDA policy. To note a few contributions, its members have drafted numerous rulesets and introduced the idea of using an NHL-style point system for season wins.

Nicknamed the Court Jesters of the NCDA by their peers, DePaul plays the game as our childish forbearers did. Our games are a juvenile program of delinquency, where the headshot hug rule substantiates our collegiate goals and ambitions.

DePaul Dodgeball remains Undefeated.
