Attack strategies: Dodgeball strategies, secrets and tips: Part 4 of 7

The game of Dodgeball is great for devising creative ways to attack. Here’s a few ideas.

  • Aim for the best throwers first. You want to get them out, so they don’t eliminate any of your players.
  • Point at a certain player casually and then throw at a different one. (the pointing can’t be too obvious)
  • Here’s a neat play called the Statue of Liberty. Hold the ball behind your back, and then have one of your teammates run behind you, grab the ball, and then immediately throw for a shocker.
  • Another from the play book could be synchronized running where you and a teammate run in a diagonal and cross paths, then throw.
  • As soon as one of your opponents is hit, aim for another one. There’s that brief moment of time where people are stunned when one of their teammates get hit. It’s a great one-two punch.
  • We haven’t tried this one, but maybe there is some sort of scream before attacking to shock your opponent. But then again, we want a lazy nonaware opponent. Once you yell, that perks them to be more attentive.

I find it helpful sometimes to throw the ball at a player who already has a ball or even better two its much harder to catch the ball if you already have one in your hand or two. I also would suggest trying to catch a ball that is hard to catch and that your probably goonna drop only when you have many players and the other team has only one player because you could catch it and end it and even if you drop it you still have a good advantege.

Another good attack strategy comes into play when the number of players on your team either slightly outnumbers the other team or is equal. Say it’s down to 3 on 3 and your team has 3 balls and the other team two. Position two of your players with one ball each in the middle of the court. Send the third out to the side as a flank. When the opponents work together to throw at the same time at your two teammates in the middle, throw from the side flank to get them out during the throwing motion, or at… Read more »
