The World Dodgeball Federation has awarded its championships to Edmonton, Canada, from August 28 to September 4, 2022. The 2022 World Championships is likely to attract over 200 athletes from more than 30 National Federations.
As a response, the Australian Dodgeball Federation has officially restarted the National Team Program and applications are now open for players and volunteers.
The current National team consists of Devrim Van Dijk leading the National Foam Program as the National Coach, and Scott Dent leading the National Cloth Program as the National Coach. Rosie Everett has stepped into the General Manager of National Team appointment since September and has been organising the program's restart for the 2022 World Championships.
