This is one of the most popular gymnasium or playground games.
It is here described first for an informal game; then in three

William A. Stecher; and lastly, for use in the schoolroom.
Forms II, III, and IV are for match games.

I. Dodgeball (informal; players not in teams).

II. Circle Dodgeball (one team forming a circle, the other team
standing within).

III. Double Dodgeball (two teams in a three-court field).

IV. Progressive Dodgeball (three teams in a three-court field,
changing courts at the end of each inning).

V. Schoolroom Dodgeball.
