Volo City’s DC Dodgeball League seeks to provide our members with a fun and social atmosphere while playing their favorite sport. We encourage you and your friends to come out, play dodgeball, meet new people, and HAVE FUN! Head over to the sponsor bar after the game for post- game celebrations and to continue the fun!

Flip Cup is mandatory and counts in the season standings! You can join our extremely social DC Dodgeball League as a team, small group of friends or solo.
