Rules & Regulations Committees

Do you want to be on our new look rules and regulations committees? 

As the sport grows we have decided to refresh and restructure our current adult rules/ regulation/ disciplinary committees. 

Instead of one single committee covering all rules/ regulations/ disciplinary issues we will be shifting to having separate committees – one for rules, and one for regulations. We will also have a separate pool of individuals from which we can form panels to review any disciplinary issues. We will be seeking a chair of each of these committees, reporting to our director of rules and disciplinary, Jess Goshawk-Dumbrell, who will shift into a more strategic role. 

We are looking for volunteers from all across the community who are interested in being part of defining the British Dodgeball rules, regulations and disciplinary procedures.

Rules Committee

Individuals on this committee will discuss and shape the playing rules for adults and juniors for the 2022/23 season, translating this into clear documentation. They will have big picture awareness throughout of the impact and relationship with logistics, player and club development, and international rulessets. The committee will engage day-to-day through a facebook group but volunteers will also be expected to attend quarterly phone meetings. Support in drafting documentation may be required. We will be looking for a rules committee chair. 

Regulations Committee 

Individuals on this committee will discuss and shape the regulations surrounding the adult and junior games, translating this into clear documentation. They will have big picture awareness throughout of the impact and relationship with logistics, player and club development, and international rulessets. The committee will engage day-to-day through a facebook group but volunteers will also be expected to attend quarterly phone meetings. Support in drafting documentation may be required.

Disciplinary Pool

We are looking for individuals to form part of our disciplinary pool, a committee that we can draw panels of 3 people from in order to review complaints or other disciplinary issues where these arise. These can range from reviewing matchplay incidents to safeguarding matters. Individuals will be part of a facebook group and will be called upon to join review panels when needed. We will be looking for a disciplinary pool chair. 

Individuals can sit on multiple committees.
