I have thought of this many times before, but when I played dodgeball in gym today, I actually felt like writing about it. Let’s see if I can do it!
I believe that any randomized gym class could easily win a match of dodgeball if they broke each person into “jobs,” each with a special ability with only one thing to worry about. I will create a fake gym class based off of my own to demonstrate.
Most people in a gym class know each other and know how well each person can throw, how motivated they are, etc. With this knowledge, they could break the class down into a well-balanced team. With the unmotivated and unskilled people in the back tapping balls towards the athletic and competitive people near the front, ball-fetchers delivering balls to the throwers, and tall people waiting for balls to catch. Everyone has a specific job and can help the team out.

So there’s my dodgeball strategy. Whenever I play dodgeball, I am always a fetcher who occasionally throws. I wish that I could get a whole class to try out this strategy and see if it works though…
