Now, dodgeball has had a resurgence of popularity and leagues have begun to appear throughout the nation.

At Geneva High School last week, the student government used it as a fundraiser in honor of two teachers battling breast cancer. Participants raised $900 for the American Cancer Society at the "Dodge Breast Cancer" event, and two more single-elimination tournaments are being planned for later in the school year.

Fifteen teams made up of at least six players paying $5 each competed.
