Prairie Dodgeball Prepares For Second Season in Martensville

by Shanine Sealey

Prairie Dodgeball had their first season last year, offering both an adult and a youth league in Martensville.

“We were blown away by the response. You never know what to expect from a first season and it surpassed all expectations as for turn-out. On the other hand, we quickly realized that some players were used to the classic PE dodgeball gam. This is much more than just that,” Prairie Dodgeball organizers Charma McIntyre and Amber Anaka explained.

Instead, this version of dodgeball is more intense, fast-paced and extremely competitive, while still being fun. McIntyre and Anaka stated that once the rules were set in place, all players were able to pick up the game and the season progressed successfully.

Following the first season, feedback from the adult league was extremely positive, with players looking forward to the next game night. “Some players had never played the game before and realized this was an incredible form of exercise and fast-paced cardio. It was a way to meet up with friends, meet new friends and have an hour to unwind and release stress in a positive way.”

As the second season of Prairie Dodgeball approaches, McIntyre and Anaka stated that they have learned from the previous season and will be making some modifications; mainly to the way that ages will be grouped for the leagues. This year, ages 10-13 will comprise the youth league, and teens will play within the adult league.

“The youth league will be a bit more dynamic in the sense of switching up our weeks with variations of the classical version of dodgeball. With an exceeding amount of interest, we are expecting more players for both youth and adult, which gives them more teams to compete against.”

There will be an information and registration night taking place on Sunday, February 26th at the Venture Heights School gym, with youth registration taking place from 6:00pm-7:00pm and adult registration taking place from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Youth can register as individuals and will be assigned to teams, and adults can register as a team or an individual if they do not have a team in place.
