Dodgeball for Dyslexia is a dodgeball tournament that has been driven for the purposes of raising as much money as possible for the Children’s Dyslexia Centers, which is the State Charity for Pennsylvania DeMolay. Dodgeball for Dyslexia was founded by Brother Evan Crawford from Elizabethtown Chapter, who has now passed the duties of planning this tournament to me, Kody Anderson, a 2017 Past Master Councilor of Elizabethtown Chapter.
Save the date: Dodgeball for Dyslexia will be held on May 12, 2018. The tournament will be at the Spooky Nook Sports complex in Manheim, PA.
2018 will be the fourth consecutive year for this tournament. In 2017, we raised over $3,000 for the Dyslexia Centers, and we plan to raise even more for 2018! Each and every year, the Dodgeball for Dyslexia tournament has been increasing in participation, with teams coming from all over Pennsylvania and even Virginia. We have had 13 teams in 2017, which consisted of many DeMolay chapters and even members from various Masonic Bodies.
We invite anyone who is willing to play dodgeball to make a team and help support and raise money for the Dyslexia Centers. All the money that is donated by teams will go to the Dyslexia Center nearest to them, so grab six to ten of your best players and come out to raise money, and have fun while doing it! The overall winning team wil take home the coveted Travelling Gold Dodgeball and have their name engraved on the trophy stand. The team that raises the most money for the Dyslexia Centers will win the Silver Dodgeball; and the team showing the most spirit will be awarded the Bronze Dodgeball. Along with the registration fee, we encourage all teams to raise and donate money to the Dyslexia Centers. We will distribute the funds you raise to the Center you designate or the one that is nearest your location.
In order to participate, each team will have a minimum registration fee of $75. The earlier you register, the less the fee. This enables us to secure the necessary referees, the required medical personnel and order sufficient commemorative shirts. Our goal is to have all teams registered by March 1st. Here are the dates and the registration fees.

March 2nd – March 15th, $100
