New Kickball Rules!


Thanks to your feedback in our recap survey, we learned a lot from your 2009 kickball cheers and jeers. After careful consideration we made some changes to our kickball rules, all changes are highlighted in yellow but well touch on the big ones here:

No more jackass cards. Why? Well, it was a slightly socially awkward during a sensitive moment to then have the official on the field call a player a donkey. This rule started in 2003 and it was time for a little refining. Weve moved onto warnings, yellow and red cards. Its more clearly defined and we think it will make your kickball experience better!

We have added a rule about wild pitches, some know that pitch by a different name but either way its now defined and will be called a ball or a walk.

Spring kickball starts March 28th. Teams will have two leagues to choose from, early afternoon (games from 12:00 PM 3:00 PM) and late afternoon (games from 3:00 PM 6:00 PM) each league is capped at 32 teams. Well play every Sunday until the end of season tournament, May 21st and 22nd.
