Please read the WDBF’s stance on the Covid-19 outbreak.
The potential impact of Covid-19 on our players, officials, volunteers and family members must be taken seriously, and we encourage everyone to respect and abide by the recommendations of your national dodgeball organizations and the global medical community.
In accordance with the World Health Organization’s recommendations, the WDBF would like to encourage all players to:
Wash your hands
Make sure that you wash your hands with soap regularily and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your face
Avoid touching your face, especially while you play. Contamination can occure much quicker this way.
Avoid sharing equipment
Avoid sharing any equipment with others such as whistles. When possible, sanitize any playing equipment that you may have.
Use alternative sportsmanship
Use alternative methods to congratulate your teammates and opponents. Avoid contact methods such as handshakes and high-fives.
Avoid travel where possible
Avoid travelling where possible to minimize the risk of spreading the virus. Stay tuned to credible news outlets and avoid travel to high risk areas.
Whenever possible, remain at home, especially if you or a person you came in contact with falls ill.
If ill, seek medical attention
If you fall ill, seek immediate medical attention by dialing your local emergency number or visiting a hospital.

Regarding major sanctioned events by the World Dodgeball Federation, congress is meeting in April to discuss contingency plans in the interest of public health and safety.
