Latrobe Valley Dodgeball League is affiliated with the Victorian Dodgeball League (VDL) & the Australian Dodgeball Federation (ADF). Our rules are sourced directly from theirs, which are in turn sourced from The World Dodgeball Federation rule book. These rules are slightly modified to suit our venue and playing circumstances, however we aim to keep them as close as possible to the VDL/ADF. Please see the rule book download button below.
Any updates or amendments to the rules will typically be made prior to the start of a new season. In rare cases, the committee may vote to update or amend the rule book during a season, in which case team captains will be given at least 1 weeks notice prior to the update taking effect. Updates or amendments will only be made as deemed necessary by the committee and will typically be the result of updates received from the VDL/ADF or venue-specific rules that may require tweaking for smoother game play.
Policies & Guidelines
Our league members can source policies, guidelines & our constitution via their team captain. Each captain has direct access to this information. If a member cannot find what they are looking for, or is unable to ask their captain to source this information, please contact the committee directly for assistance.
Dodgeball is played on a 60 Foot long X 30 Foot Wide Court with activation Lines that are 10 Feet From The Center Line. We use low-tack tape to lay out our court as the facility we use does not have the lines pre-marked. Please see the court diagram download button below.
