Team USA

SELECTION PROCESS

All players who represent USA Dodgeball on Team USA must be active members in good standing of USA Dodgeball. Skill and sportsmanship, both on and off the court, is paramount, as each player is a representative of this community and organization. Scouts selected by USA Dodgeball’s Executive Board are responsible for scouting talent in their respective regions as well as nationally for both men’s and women’s candidates that exhibit these characteristics. They select and submit individuals they believe will act in accordance with the organization’s bylaws and demonstrate the necessary skill to attend the USA Dodgeball Combine, where selected players will complete a series of drills and scrimmages. The scouting team will select the final squad to represent USA Dodgeball at the World Dodgeball Federation’s annual World Championship and other events nationally and internationally as required.

USA Dodgeball has built an organization where talent can be discovered from every corner of the country, and where everyone can have a fair and equal opportunity to be assessed on their merit. There are no limits on how many players may be selected to attend the Combine or on how many are selected for the final squad. We are looking to build a team that embodies the ideals of this organization and continue to grow this sport to its highest level.
