World DodgeBall Federation

The World Dodgeball Federation (WDBF) is here at last! Dodgeball organizations from all over the world are joining together to bring Dodgeball to the next level through collaboration, cooperation and international matches. The main purpose of this organization is to for DodgeBall to be officially represented in the International community by acting as the International Federation (IF) for the sport. The World Dodgeball Federation, commonly known by the acronym WDBF , is the international governing body of association dodgeball. Its membership comprises 11 national associations. Its headquarters are in Toronto, Ontario Canada. WDBF is responsible for the organisation of dodgeball's major international tournaments, notably the Dodgeball World Championships. '''History of WDBF''' The need for a single body to oversee the game became apparent with the increasing popularity of international fixtures. WDBF was founded on 29 July 2011. The founding members were the national associations of Canada, United States of America, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Romania, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines. '''Structure''' WDBF is an association established under the Laws of Canada. Its headquarters are in Toronto, Ontario. WDBF's supreme body is the WDBF board, an assembly made up of representatives from each affiliated member association. The Board assembles in ordinary session once every year and, additionally. Only the Board can pass changes to WDBF's statutes. WDBF's Board is the main decision-making body of the organisation in the intervals of Congress. WDBF's worldwide organisational structure also consists of several other bodies, under authority of the Board. Among those bodies are the Finance Committee, the Disciplinary Committee, the Referees Committee, etc. Beside from its worldwide institutions there are three associations recognized by WDBF which oversee the game in the different continents and regions of the world. National associations, and not the continental confederations, are members of WDBF. The continental confederations are provided for in WDBF's statutes, and membership of a confederation is a prerequisite to WDBF membership. Asia Pacific Dodgeball Federation European Dodgeball Association North American Dodgeball Association In total, WDBF recognises 14 national associations and their associated national teams. The WDBF Board is the supreme legislative body of WDBF. At the assembly decisions are made relating to WDBF's governing statutes and their method of implication and application. The board approves the annual report, and decides on the acceptance of new national associations and holds elections. Each national dodgeball association has one vote, regardless of its size or dodgeballing strength. '''Discipline of national associations''' WDBF frequently takes active roles in the running of the sport and developing the game around the world. One of its sanctions is to suspend teams and associated members from international competition when a government interferes in the running of WDBF's associate member organizations or if the associate is not functioning properly.

Who's a good boy? These eight.ANNOUNCEMENT: 2018 TEAM CANADA ROSTERS REVEALED

After several months of qualifiers, trials, walkies and a National tournament that saw over 250 of Canada’s strongest and most passionate dodgeball athletes showcase their talents, the 2018 Team Canada rosters have been decided. On behalf of dodgeball communities from across the country, we thank everyone for their passion and appreciation for the process and embracing the connections and bridges being built across Canada.

The National Team Selections Committee (NTSC) deliberated in-person on the talent being represented from coast-to-coast and constructively have built a team adhering to the 2018 Team Canada vision, as the program looks to capture success on the court abroad. At this time, Dodgeball Canada would like to thank the members of the NTSC for their relentless effort, thoughtful considerations, commitment, and treats they’ve invested to build Team Canada.

We now ask you to join us in celebrating and welcoming your 2018 Team Canada athletes!

WDBF is grateful to the Ministry of Tourism in Indonesia for their support of the Bali Badung International Beach Dodgeball Tournament! We also want to acknowledge the support for the Ministry of Education in helping to establish the sport in the country.

With two schools on board and five more to begin programming in April, dodgeball is on its way to become a part of the sports curriculum in the world's 4th most populous country.

We hope to see a great turnout for the event, and show the country the incredible community that exists for the sport, worldwide.
