TIFTON — Zac Martin wants to see your moves. Your dodgeball moves, that is.
Martin is organizing a dodgeball tournament Nov. 16 at TIft County High School, which is being co-presented by TCHS athletics and Called to Care.
“I’m trying to make this a community event,” said Martin, who head coaches the varsity Lady Devils in soccer and assists with middle school wrestling and football. Martin was inspired to organize a dodgeball tournament because of the experience he had earlier this year competing at one in Valdosta. “It was just a lot of fun,” he said.
Martin is looking for teams around Tift County to fill out the brackets. A minimum of six people are needed per team and there is a $60 entry fee for the groups. Players should be high school age and older. The tournament will start at 9 a.m. and is expected to last all day.
Proceeds from the tournament will go to support all Tift County athletics teams and Called to Care. By benefitting Tift County teams, he mentioned areas that people might not think about: ticket-takers and bus drivers.
There will be a prize for first place. Martin also promises an award for the best uniforms. The whole day will be festive. Martin said there will be music playing and food available.
Martin is requesting teams register by Nov. 9. He’d like at least 32 teams in the tournament, but is hoping for 64.
