Join the Referee Team!
For over 3 days in April, the dodgeball world will converge on Montreal for the best dodgeball Canada has to offer. Together we'll get to witness some of the highest levels of play as players compete for the title of Canadian champions. Of course, the best dodgeball means having the best officials. We're looking to build a high-performing team of Canada's top dodgeball officials that will rival the level of talent off the court. Join us for a court-side seat to witness the best dodgeball you'll see all year!
