A athletic game made played mainly in American elementary and middle schools in which participants throw foam or rubber balls at each other. If a player is struck by a ball in mid-flight, without catching it, he or she is out of the game. Because of its rudimentary simplicity and low initial costs, dodgeball is enjoying a resurgence among urban and suburban adults.
When I was in middle school, I was quite the dodgeball player. I was fast and had good hand/eye coordination, which is all you really need. Plus I could catch. Unfortunately, the game was eventually banned from my school by a bunch of conservative, bible-thumping Republicans, who preferred us to stay indoors all day and praise Jesus.
