Kickball Game

Fun group game that uses a ball, 4 bases and 2 teams of players.  Kickball is played similar to baseball except players kick the ball to run the bases and score points. 

What you Need To Play Kickball

4 objects for bases and a playground ball




Object of the Kickball Game

Similar to baseball players kick the ball and run around bases without being tagged out.



Set up the game

Set up the bases similar to a baseball diamond. Divide kids into two teams. Do a coin toss to determine who will be kicking first. Fielding team decides on a pitcher and the rest of the kids go to the field and get ready to catch the ball and / or tag the runner.




How to Play Kickball


The pitcher rolls the ball to the kicker. The kicker kicks the ball into the outfield and runs to first base - or second, third and home if they can make it without being tagged out. Field players must tag the runners while either carrying the ball and touching them, or throwing it at the runner. If the ball is caught the kicker is out.


If a fielder throws a ball to get a runner out and misses the runner - the runners can only advance one base.

Three outs and teams switch. 


If a kicker kicks the ball and it goes between home base and either first or second base then it is called a foul and the kicker kicks the ball again. 


4 fouls = 1 out


Play up to a certain time limit or whoever reaches 20 first. 



Kickball Strategy

Kick the ball through holes in the fielders and keep it on the ground so there isn’t a chance of it being caught.

This is a great game for children and adults of all ages.
