A Brief Look at the IDC Story
The Island Dodgeball Championship in Prince Edward Island is eastern Canada's premier dodgeball event. The championship was hosted for the first time in January 2012 at Colonel Gray High School in Charlottetown.
Our first tournament drew teams and fans from 6 schools.  Early on, it was evident that dodgeball was a level playing field in which smaller communities could compete against larger city teams. The wildcard "Kinkora Trojan Tropics" did just that in 2012 and went on to upset the favourited "Bluefield Bullseyes" to become the first ever mens Island Dodgeball Champions.
As time has passed, the sport of dodgeball has grown at an exciting pace with more teams and fans joining us each year. When IDC 2013 set an attendance record that approached Colonel Gray's fire code limit, it was determined that a new home was needed for the event's future.
After consultation with Colonel Gray, Coltin Handrahan and his team at Golden Events began independently managing the Island Dodgeball Championship brand  and moved the event to the UPEI field house for 2014.  The following tournament saw a much larger turn out in the womens division than previous years and the introduction of a junior high age division.
Today's Island Dodgeball Championship is an independant event hosted yearly in partnership with the Holland Hurricanes at the Holland College Centre for Community Engagement in Charlottetown. Over 500 athletes and 1500 spectators are drawn to the main series of tournaments representing over 50 independent teams from across the province.
During past years we have developed two spin off tournaments under the IDC brand.
The IDC "December Shootout" kicks off the road to the championship in early December with roughly 20 teams. The Wildcard Redemption pre-tournament is hosted each year a few weeks before the main tournament as a final shot for teams to qualify for the Island Dodgeball Championship.
2017 saw the introduction of our first ever 19+ senior division, the East Coast Dodgeball Championship which included our first ever off island team from New Brunswick. The Golden Events team looks forward to growing this exciting addition to the main championship as an opportunity for past IDC players to continue playing the sport.
Stay tuned for more exciting developments coming this season!

  •         Style of Play

    The style of dodgeball that is played in IDC tournaments originated at Colonel Gray High School and has seen several rounds of changes and improvements over the past 5 years.


    A full PDF of the IDC rulebook is included on our website under the rulebook section. Some of the major rules that define our style of play are as follows:


    • Games are played on a full sized basketball court

    • 10 players begin each game, with a maximum of 5 subs for a total of 15 players per team.

    • 10 balls are laid out on the center line. These balls are activated during the opening  rush

        only after they have been taken or thrown behind the "Attack Line."

    • Round robin games are played in a single set, 5 minute timed format.

    • Finals are played in 3 sets. The winner of the game is determined by who wins

       2 of the 3 sets.

    • In the case of a tie, 2 minutes of overtime can be added. If the tie continues after this

       overtime, the game moves to a sudden death format.
