Community Engagement

At VDL, we believe in giving back to the community. We organize fun, meaningful charitable activities where we liaise with local non-profits and give back with our time and energy.

If you’ve ever wanted to volunteer and help others, or are a little nervous about going it alone, we’d love for you to join us! Just show up to an event, it’s that easy! Come hang out with other dodgeballers outside the court, gain exposure to the ways you can help out, and make a positive contribution to our local community.

If you are interested in helping organize or lead similar events, or have ideas to pitch for players to get involved in, the VDL Community Engagement team would love to hear fro you! Please contact Michelle at msz@vdldodgeball.ca

 

Upcoming Events

Trivia Night **POSTPONED**

Calling all nerds, brainiacs, and dodgeball enthusiasts! Join us on our first ever VDL Trivia Night fundraiser!

With questions running the gamut from Astronomy to Zoology, (and of course a good dash of Dodgeball trivia thrown in too), show off your knowledge and you and your friends may just be crowned VDL’s Trivia Champions! Did we mention you might win some sweet prizes too?

Put together a team of 6 people or less, of which half of the team must be current VDL players, and sign up for free! But bring some cash with you, as we’ll be selling 50/50 tickets, with proceeds going to a local charity. Because at VDL, we’re all about giving back while having a good time!

Where: East Side Craft House
When: March 19th, 2020 @ 7pm
