ABOUT WORLD DODGEBALL
WHAT WE DO
The World Dodgeball Association is the Official World Governing Body of Dodgeball, working as a not for profit social enterprise across 6 continents in partnership with 48 national federations delivering to over 70 million people worldwide. By 2020 we will be delivering across 70 nations to over 90 million participants.
We are growing sustained participation at grassroots, competitive and high performance levels within the sport in partnership with our National and Continental Federations.
On Tuesday 22nd October 2013 the World Dodgeball Association was established through the amalgamation of three continental bodies under one World Council. Since 2013 the Africa Dodgeball Federation has emerged and therefore the continental bodies represent Africa, America, Asia-Pacific and Europe regions.

Strength to Strength
Strength to Strength deliver a Young Ambassadors Program (YAP) that brings together young people ages 14-20 who lost either a parent or immediate family member in a terrorist attack or were injured themselves. The participants spend a week together in New York City and come from various countries including Argentina, Algeria, England, France, Israel, Kenya, Northern Ireland, Spain, Uganda, and the United States. The goal of the trip is to ensure a week filled with exciting and fun activities combined with meetings with political and community leaders in order to empower these young people to take their personal experiences of trauma and share them with each other in order to bring about healing. The World Dodgeball Association have recently launched a new Global Dodgeball for Development and Peace program that unites people in the face of adversity.
Our policies and procedures are in place to support and guide the Dodgeball Family to ensure that the Sport is undertaken within safe and friendly environments.
