Dodge, dip and dive your way into the Coed Adult Dodgeball League in Ocean Pines. The winter league for women and men, ages 18 and older, is now accepting groups of at least six people for its foam-ball throw-downs that will happen every Wednesday night at the Ocean Pines Community Center starting Jan. 17 at 6:30 p.m.
“The best part about it is we don’t use the big red ball anymore. Come check us out; it’s a blast,” said Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Manager Debbie Donahue.
You can sign up as an individual who would serve as a ‘free agent’ for teams in need of additional players or assemble your own team of dodgeball experts. League rules require teams to have a minimum of six players, including two females, on the court at all times and up to 15 players on the team’s roster.
Donahue said those who do not have a team but wish to play should attend the Jan. 10 pre-season team meeting at 7 p.m. the Community Center, where they will be partnered with a team or other individuals who are looking to join a team.
The season consists of eight weeks of play at the Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines. The eighth week will consist of the championship games for bragging rights and some awesome prizes.
Registration, which is open now through Jan. 10, costs $300 per team. To register, contact the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department at 410-641-7052. All events and programs in Ocean Pines are open to the public.
