Too long of a season?

So there is surprisingly only a month left in the dodgeball season. But it leaves me wondering, is our season too long? It seems each your teams start playing games earlier and earlier in the year, and then this year SVSU played GVSU in early September. So essentially, our season has gone from the start of the fall semester to all but the final three weeks of the school year.

So, is it too much? For a team like SVSU it might be. We have had a game or a tournament almost every weekend. Which leaves for little else to do... Not that I am complaining. Though, I wonder what the schools that play fewer games like the Kentucky or Ohio schools think.

Perhaps if we shortened to a start date of early November, and still ending in April it would create more of a season feel as well, instead of a year round thing.

Perhaps having this long of a season isn't a bad thing. You can get the most games in this way, you can get new members anytime, and build your arm strength to an ungodly level.

That's really it... no pressing issues this time

My thoughts right now are that for the most part, our games are scheduled based on our availability, and that's why the season sometimes is so long. But if we want to shorten the schedule a little bit, I think we should try to implement more of a set schedule for teams. I think this would be fair to all teams because it would give each team an equal amount of games to play, and we could have our set season as well. Just a thought.
