3D Dodgeball…Bounce your way to victory!

By: Ken Cross | January 1, 2013

If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball.  Well, according to the movie, “Dodgeball,” this statement is true.

What happens if you add in an endless sea of trampolines, all connected to form one massive trampoline service?  Wait, there’s more.

Imagine that surface of trampolines is enclosed with angled trampolines that allow you to literally bounce off the walls.  If this sounds fun (who wouldn’t think this sounds fun?), then Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park in Canton is the place for you!

Ever since the first time I played dodgeball in elementary school, I was immediately addicted.  As soon as a friend of mine told me about Sky Zone, I thought they were playing a joke on me.  That was until I talked to Jeff Leahy, who is the operations manager of Sky Zone.

“The owner had a passion to bring a fun atmosphere to Canton,” said Leahy, who describes Sky Zone as “an incredibly fun atmosphere!”

Want to give it a shot?  Come and join in on one of their daily pick up games.  Whether you are bringing friends or coming alone, Sky Zone will do its best to get a game going.

Do you think you are ready to play some competitive 3D dodgeball?  If that’s the case, then you have to join in on the action by signing up for a dodgeball league!  Registrations for Co-ed 10 person teams with up to 15 people on a roster are taking place as we speak.  If you are interested in signing up a team, visit www.canton.skyzonesports.com.

Interested in the trampoline playing court but don’t enjoy getting hit with dodgeballs?  You’re in luck because Sky Zone offers SkyRobics as well!

“SkyRobics is an hour of the most intense cardiovascular workout where you can burn up to 1000 calories in one hour,” said Leahy.  “We have our amazing foam pit where children and adults take a leap into our giant pit of blue foam cubes and we also have 3 sky slam lanes with basketball rims at 3 different heights for all ages.”

Personally, if I was still a kid, I would whine and beg my parents to throw my next birthday party at Sky Zone.  I would probably say, “Mom, I am sick of plastic slides, ball pits, and arcade games.  I want to play 3D dodgeball at Sky Zone!”

“Birthday parties are a big part of Sky Zone; however we do have corporate events, field trips, private group events & dodgeball tournaments,” said Leahy.

Although Sky Zone is the only available 3D dodgeball facility in the Metro Detroit area, don’t stress, you can still find traditional dodgeball facilities throughout southeast Michigan!

WHO’S READY FOR SOME DODGEBALL?!?
