Latrobe Valley Dodgeball League is organized by a non-for-profit committee made up from our playing community. This means that every dollar made goes back into the league for continued improvement and benefit to our community as a whole.
“If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.'
I believe in setting up good foundations on which to grow our community and our competition. This comes from both the people that volunteer their time and the practices we put in place. I am very proud of the growth our community has made to date and intend to continue striving for strong development in both our community and our competition.
I value a balance between strong competition and good community spirit. Seeing competitors go all out in a tough game whilst honestly showing one another respect & encouragement is simply amazing."
“ The league is as only good as its players and volunteers. We all need to do our part, that's why i am here!
As a player, it’s all about the camaraderie and the adrenaline rush.
I.e. A game was scored 6-7 Us vs Them on the siren. I was a fill in, my first game back after a break. Me alone, 1 vs 4. I win the round and force a tie break, then I help win the game 8-7.
I also like to think of dad jokes to try to outdo President Mitch Howell, but I never succeed.”

"Always seek a higher plateau, in everything you do. There is always more to learn, there is always room for improvement.'
After seeing all the work getting put in to running the LVDL first-hand, I decided to throw my name in the ring, and lend a pair of hands wherever needed, whether it be setting up, organising matches or the whole enchilada.
Ever since I started, Dodgeball for me has been a stress relief, a social event, and a hobby all rolled into one. I guess you could say it’s more than ideal!
My favourite aspect of the game is that there is no limit to your own potential. You can truly be as skillful or even more-so than those around you, but the ball is truly in your hands (Most of the time anyway)."
