The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Committee is sponsoring its 12th annual Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Championships on April 5 at 7 p.m. at Dublin Scioto.
The 24 members of Supt. Dr. Todd Hoadley’s student advisory committee have chosen this year’s causes that will receive 100% of the tournament proceeds.

A donation will be made to OSU-James Cancer Hospital-Brain Cancer Research
on behalf of Dublin Coffman Teacher Beth Willer.
Blessings in a Backpack
The Blessings in a Backpack program takes place at some of our elementary schools and provides food on the weekends for students and their families in need. This completely volunteer effort must be funded to purchase the food in order to ensure none of our students or their families go hungry. This type of kindness and concern is indicative of the Dublin Difference.
American Cancer Society
Cancer is a disease that touches almost everybody’s life in some form or another. American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
A portion of the funds will also benefit the Memorial Scholarship Funds of Lyndsey Rice and Kyle Colello, two Dublin Scioto students who passed away in November of 2009.
“Our annual dodgeball tournament has become a unifying community event, raising more than $145,000 since its inception,” said Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley. “The students on my committee were extremely thoughtful as they discussed this year’s possible beneficiaries, ultimately landing on extremely worthy organizations. We hope our entire community will join us on April 5.”
The entrance fee is $25 per team, but the Central Office/Board of Education team will be donating more to this year’s causes. The Central Office/Board team challenges all adult staff teams to also donate beyond the $25 entrance fee. Admission to the tournament is $5.
Teams consist of 6-10 players, with six players per team on the court at one time. The winning teams will be awarded the Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Championship trophy that currently resides at the schools of last year’s champions.
We will again have student and adult divisions of the tournament. Student teams will be selected at the school building level.
If your adult team would like to compete on April 5, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, March 22.
Admission to the tournament is $5 and 100% of all proceeds go to this year’s beneficiaries.
