Did you know that in 1996 the sport of Dodgeball was recognized by the International Olympic Committee as a serious sport and was played that year at the Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta?
Paonia High School will host the first Winter Warrior Dodgeball Tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m.
The event is a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project.
Co-ed teams made up of students ranging from grades 9-12 will compete in the age-old game of dodgeball (the game has roots dating back more than 600 years, although its roots in the U.S. began in 1920), and uniforms will reflect a warrior theme. Think Spartans, Romans, American GIs.
Team entry fees and the admission fee of $2 per person will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Admission for veterans is free. PHS will host a Heroes' Wall, and community members are encouraged to bring pictures of veteran heroes, who will be honored at the event.
