The National Dodgeball Festival has eligibility rules to ensure the tournament play will be a successful experience for all players. The festival organizers reserve the right to deny entries to teams which are in the wrong division relative to their ability. Our goal is to build the sport. Our highest level players should compete in the highest divisions. Teams are encouraged to contact us if they have questions regarding eligibility.
The Festival reserves the right to deny entries to a country's specific National Team.
