Dodgeball is a classic youth group game - definitely needs to be played in a place where balls cannot cause too much damage!
Split your group into two teams. They line up at opposite ends of the hall or gym. In the middle, place 5 or 6 balls. See diagram below
5 or 6
Start by yelling "Dodgeball". The two teams then race to the middle, grab the balls, and start throwing them at the other team.
- If you are hit directly by a ball, you are out and must leave the playing area
- If you catch someone's throw, they are out, and in addition, you can bring one of your 'outed' team members back into the game.
- If you fumble whilst trying to catch a ball, you're out.
- You can use a ball you are holding to deflect a ball thrown at you.
The game continues until a team runs out of team members.
