2. 6 standard IDA-approved balls (8.25” foam balls) are placed on the centerline in two groups of 3. Each group of 3 is placed at opposite ends of the centerline, in front of the referees.
3. Opening Rush: Players must be touching the back line at the start of the game. After the starting countdown of “3, 2, 1 Dodgeball!” teams approach the centerline to retrieve the balls.
4. Teams can only take the 3 balls to their right initially.
5. Balls must touch the back line before they are live. The ball is dead otherwise.
