Rules & Regulations:
Kickball teams will be co-ed and include at least 4 female players. Teams must have at least 9 players with a maximum of 14 players. We will play with 9 on the field.
Players should be 16 years of age and up. Players will have to fill out a waiver when checking in. All players should be included on the rosters.
This is slow pitch kickball. No bouncing pitches. If pitching becomes reckless (in the eye of the umpire) it will be required to have a new pitcher.
Cannot steal bases, players must remain on base until kicker makes contact.
A game will include 5 full innings.
OT innings will be played if game ends in a tie. Maximum of 2 OT innings. If still in a tie, winner will be decided by flipping a coin. Play time will be 45 minutes unless the game ends in a tie.
Mercy guideline: A game will be considered final if one team leads by 15 or more runs after 5 complete innings. 4.5 if the home team leads.
Bunting is not allowed.
Bunting is defined as a kicked ball that does not cross the 1st-3rd diagonal line or reach a fielder (whichever comes first) before the kicker crosses the hash mark halfway down the first base line. And a kicked ball that comes to a complete stop on its own before reaching the 1st-3rd diagonal line will be considered a bunt.
4 foul balls will be considered an out.
