STARTING PLAY: The game will start with dodgeballs placed along the center line and players taking positions behind their end line. Players must wait for the official to sound his/her whistle to signal -Opening Rush.- Players may only retrieve balls on the right as they face the center line.

PERIODS & TIME FACTORS:Games will be decided using a -best-of-seven- format. Each match will last five minutes. Teams will change sides after each match.

TIME OUTS: Each team will be allowed two, sixty-second, time outs per match. Any member of a team currently in the field of play may signal the official to call a time out.

SCORING: Matches will be determined when all opposing players have been eliminated; however matches are limited to five minutes. In the event that neither team has been eliminated within the five minute limit, the team with the most number of players remaining will be determined the winner.

SUDDEN DEATH:Sudden death will only occur if, at the end of the five-minute match limit, both teams have the same number of players remaining on the court.
