international dodgeball association

A grassroots initiative to advance dodgeball globally.

dodgeball for the world

We believe in the power of dodgeball to bring people together. We imagine a world where anyone—young and old—who loves dodgeball can play it. Whether competitively or recreationally, may it always be with good people and common values that promotes fun, spirit and good sportsmanship. 

our vision

build Community

We’re run entirely by passionate volunteers who love the game and are passionate to share it. We cultivate dodgeball communities based on good sportsmanship that build friendships and promote fair and spirited play. 

be social

IDA builds dodgeball infrastructure and resources that allow anyone to organize a dodgeball league and develop their leadership potential. We bring to communities a variety of activities including league play, tournaments, skills clinics, and social celebrations, on top of participating in and sponsoring charitable events.
