Dive into Dodgeball is an opportunity for you and your school to get involved in the sport. Dive into Dodgeball links together everything that is available from the UKDBA for school dodgeball with 3 key strands: Playing, Learning & Competition. Each of the 3 strands supports the others to encourage the development of children within your school, in your community and beyond. Within all 3 strands your school children are provided with the opportunity to engage in a team game that builds character, improves health and fitness, and helps them to develop both physically and mentally whilst having fun.

In December 2009 the UKDBA hosted the first ever primary school dodgeball competition in Chester – it was clear to see then that with something new and inclusive the sport had captured the imagination of the children, teachers and parents involved. Today the number of school dodgeball competitions are rising each year with this year alone seeing well over 500 events taking place in the UK.
Our full approach to junior competitions can be found at the Youth Competitions page.
Where possible we aim to encourage full school involvement when hosting your own dodgeball competitions. To assist primary schools we have designed an easy to use Primary School Dodgeball Day resource that provides a template for you to deliver your own event.
