JMU Club Dodgeball is one of JMU’s newest club sports that offers a physical and social outlet to a co-ed environment that benefits the team, the university and the Harrisonburg community.

We compete in the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association, the premiere collegiate dodgeball association in the United States. We play teams across the nation from Kentucky to Michigan, and even the Windy City.

Every year we set up a number of tournaments and round robins that form our regular season; our season ends by qualifying for NCDA Nationals, which will be held in Ohio for the 2015-2016 season.

We are in the East Coast region of the NCDA, so we frequent local rivalries against teams such as VCU, Towson, University of Maryland, and Penn State. Since our club started, we have continued to grow as a powerful force on the East coast, as well as the entire country.

Our co-ed roster is comprised of 65 members every semester. We hold tryouts at the beginning of every semester and allow a number of people on that corresponds to our open roster spots.

We practice three times a week, and times and locations are posted at the bottom of our webpage. Most of our practices are team only, however, if you approach an exec member, we would be more than happy to get your friends out here too.

Dues for 2015-2016 season are $100 for an entire year of membership, or $60 for just one semester. This covers practices, equipment, tournament and league fees, and some travel expenses.

In order to retain member status for our team, we require:

  • Full or Part-time student status at James Madison University
  • Attend 50% or more practices, fundraising and social events throughout the year
  • Complete five community service hours a year registered, and have them registered through the team
  • Be up to date with dues

With 3 consecutive Final Four appearances, we have established ourselves as a national powerhouse. We think we have what it takes to bring a national championship back to JMU, and we would love for you to be a part of it.
