FAQs

  • What kind of balls are used?

    The Wack plays with safe rubber-skin foam balls that don’t hurt at all on impact .
  • Am I too young/old to play dodgeball?

    Although we require all of our players to be 19 and over, there is no upper limit.
  • Why does The Wack use peer referees instead of paid ones?

    Unlike many other sports, The Wack’s style of dodgeball is primarily based on spirit and the honour system. The referees are only present to help facilitate a smooth game and not make every single call. Having peer referees encourages all players share in the responsibility of keeping the game fair. The quality of refereeing may vary depending on the experience of the players. However, paid referees would undermine the spirit of the game by discouraging players from calling themselves out and placing that responsibility on the referees.
  • Are the executives and organizers paid?

    The Wack is a community driven organization completely run by volunteers. No one is paid.
  • Are there different tiers in the league?

    All teams will have a chance to play each other in non-tiered format.
