The World Dodgeball Federation (WDBF) is pleased to announce that USDO, the American representative since the inception of the WDBF, has joined USA Dodgeball, to form the new official representative of the United States. Michael Costanza and Nicole Chasin will be joined by Jake Mason as leaders of USA Dodgeball’s International Relations Committee, also to be known as “Team USA Dodgeball”.
USA Dodgeball has experienced a meteoric rise since its recent formation, and has brought the most respected and recognized entities together under one banner, including Elite Dodgeball, Volo City, WeHo Dodgeball, the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association, and the Ultimate Dodgeball Championships. The Board of Directors includes Jake Mason, Mark Acomb, Kate Kerins, Felix Perrone, and Alex Benepe.
This team’s considerable breath and depth of talent will further enhance the WDBF as we continue to develop programs in coaching, officiating, youth development, and adaptive sport. 2017 was a seminal year for the Federation, with a spectacular edition of its annual World Championships in Toronto, Canada, and the introduction of new member federations in Europe, Africa, South America, and the Caribbean. We look forward to working with USA Dodgeball, and all our member federations, as we plan for an amazing campaign in 2018.
