Hamner YouTube CaptureRon Hamner talks dodgeball strategySCHOLARSHIPS: Ron Hamner, SHP Jr. Advisory Board member, explains who benefits from the scholarships the tourney is funding.

STRATEGY I: Hamner, himself a former middle school dodgeballer, says using your Knowledge That Will Change The World will help.

STRATEGY II: Our only advice is to remember the immortal words of Patches O'Houlihan (legendary ADAA champ), "If you're going to become true dodgeballers, then you've got to learn the five d's of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!"
