More info regarding Trench-style Dodgeball:

Trench is a variation of the game Dodgeball; in this version, players on each side will be guarding three bowling ball pins from being knocked down while they try not to be hit by a ball thrown by the opposing team. If a player is hit, that player goes to the trench on the opposing team’s side. The player needs to receive a pass from a teammate while in the trench.
