Although Dodgeball Ottawa was originally started simply to provide another option for dodgeball in Ottawa, it was always our goal to help build a community within the sport here in Ottawa. It started with our drop-in dodgeball and grew into a team league. Now, 3 years later, we have established Ottawa as a competitive breeding ground for tournaments and made a name for Ottawa provincially within dodgeball. Meanwhile, our community grew and grew. Within the community, people have made new friendships, business partnerships, relationships and of course dodgeball court chemistry. Today I believe our community is stronger than ever!
Alex Svetlovsky, who is an extremely dedicated community member, recently went above and beyond. Alex built a removable plexiglass barrier to stop balls from getting caught on the stage. He did this using his own time and effort. He came up with a great solution for making this barrier completely removable with no installation needed. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge Alex for his commitment to the community! I would also like to thank everyone who jumped to Alex’s side to help him. I am so incredibly moved by our dodgeball community and would like to thank everyone for being a part of it.
I truly never expected the community idea to catch on the way it has and I am just happy to part of it all.
See you on the court
