Ian Childs [MSU] said this about the NCDA: “you’ll find a plethora of talented guys and girls who will no doubt win games.” There’s always plenty of dodgeball going around, and more dodgeball is being played all the time.
Currently, the USDO [USA Dodgeball Organization] is searching for players for the USA’s national team, in Australia this September. The Deadline is June 30th, but they only consider people that apply. Full information can be found on a facebook post in their group.
