Warm Up! Before Playing Dodgeball
Dodgeball is a great fun sport. However, one should be fit enough to play. All the muscles (even the muscle you are not aware of) of your body works out, so you should warm up before going on the court. You can warm up yourself by doing few stretches and exercises. You include hamstring and arm and shoulder stretches along with leg and thigh stretches. Practicing for your throws in the game and going for a light jog can be among the excellent ways of warming up. Drink lots of water and avoid getting dehydrated.
Throwing Strategies of Dodgeball
Work with your teammates to throw multiple balls for eliminating the strongest opponent. Practice throwing across the court instead of throwing straight. Fake your throws and fool the opponents. Target your opponent as soon as they jump and dodge them at the right moment. Time your throws accordingly with the opponent’s time of throwing ball
Team Work Strategies for Dodgeball
For the team to perform the best, the players should be playing as a team. Spread out the teammates on the court in order to avoid getting flocked up on the same place Strategize and make a plan in placing all the teammates and communicate with them on the court as well. When the opponent is about to throw the ball while a corner throw, force the opponent so that he stays out of reach of his teammates. Don’t stand in front of your own teammates as ducking an opponent’s ball can hurt your teammate. At the same time, don’t stand behind your teammate as you might get hurt while your teammate duck the opponent’s ball. Use your teammates as human shields
Be familiar with the codes and rules of conduct and make sure that you are abiding by them as getting familiar isn’t enough unless you abide by them
