Dodgeball Questions & Answers
Who can participate?
All Methacton students, Methacton employees, Methacton parents, and Methacton alumni.
Can anyone outside the district participate?
At least 70% of each team must be from Methacton (student, employee, parent or alumni).
Can I be on more than one team?
No! Unfortunately due to the timing of the games, there could be a conflict of game times or your teams could have to play against each other. In order to avoid any of these conflicts, you can only be on one team!
How many can be on a team?
Teams may be 6-10 players and can be co-ed. If a team has mixed grade levels, the youngest players on a team have to play up to the oldest player’s division.
What will I need to register a team?
A team captain (A parent/guardian for the student teams) must be determined who would be in charge of registering the teams.
Info needed to register: Team captain name, team captain email and phone number, team name (be as creative and funny as you want, but names are subject to review!), student’s name, grade, birth date, school, and t-shirt size.
A waiver, “Permission to Participate,” will need to be signed by each team participant (or guardian if participant in under 18) in order for your registration to be complete. Teams will be registered on a first-come, first serve basis.
How much does it cost to register a team?
Registration costs are $150 per team for the students, parents and alumni teams. Registration cost is $100 for the Methacton employees’ teams.
How do I pay?
Payment is made by the team captain for the entire team during registration on-line via a credit card. Each team member will receive a free MEF Dodgeball t-shirt.
When and where is the event?
The Dodgeball tournament will be held in the 3 gyms at Methacton High School on Saturday March 21, 2020. Doors open at 11 AM for check-in. Games will run from 12-4 PM.
I don’t want to play, but I want to come and watch my friends and my teachers. Can I?
Of course! We would love as many cheerleaders and spectators as possible. Entrance cost (if not on a team) is $5 per person.
What are the prizes?
Teams are encouraged to come in costume/uniform! Prizes will be given out for: Best Dressed Team; Best Team Name; and for the First Place Teams in each division.
How are the teams divided up by?
Teams will be divided up by grade-level based on registration numbers, but elementary students will be separated from older students and the adult divisions for safety purposes! If a team has mixed grade levels, the youngest players on a team have to play up to the oldest player’s division.
How many games are we guaranteed?
The minimum number of games played would be 2 as it is a double elimination tournament.

What will I need to bring?
Yourself, dressed up for your team’s theme, and a lot of energy! Balls will be provided.
