Each team is responsible for team name and uniform. We strongly encourage creativity!

CONDUCT: 

Come on man…its kickball! You’re an adult…act like one. If you’re playing to be a competitive jerk then find somewhere else to play. Have fun, treat others and the game with respect, make some friends, and don’t take it too seriously.  That goes for friends and family too. If someone is cheating or causing problems, talk to an official. Watch your mouth…there are often kids around.

Food and beverages: Food and drinks are allowed. Alcohol is prohibited by SPAR…our policy is to don’t look, don’t tell. If alcohol (or the effects because of alcohol) becomes a problem then we will look and tell.

RULES:

We follow WAKA rules with modifications. You can look up the rules online atkickball.com/rules

Team captains will submit final scores to the official after the game

Each regular season game is self-umpired under an honor system. Championship will have officials. If a team has a dispute, ONLY the team captains should discuss it and work it out.  Close calls can be settled by rock-paper-scissors, a dance-off or some other means. Team captains can ask the official to intervene if necessary.

10 run max per inning. 15 run mercy rule for game.  Each game is 7 innings or 1 hour time limit. The inning that is currently being played when time expires is the last inning. The entire inning can be finished if last batting team is behind.

Bunts must go at least 10 feet (a box will be chalked). No double kicks (counts as foul). Pitcher and infielders must not “creep” towards home plate past 10 feet until contact has been made with the ball.  A chalk mark will be on the baseline and in front of the pitcher’s mound. 

Each team will be required to submit a batting order to the other team prior to game start. No batting out of order.  An order sheet will be provided.

Substitutions may be made. Once a player is replaced by substitution, that player can no longer play in the same game. Only exception is medical or personal emergency.

4 fouls is an out

No lead offs or steals.

Infield fly rule is in effect.

2 base max on overthrow.

Tagging someone out above the shoulders is not allowed unless the person “ducks” into the throw or tag.  The runner is safe if hit above the shoulders. Don’t be a jerk and throw it too hard. That won’t be tolerated either.

Pitchers: this is recreational…no 70 mph rollers with English please. Just roll the ball…not bounce it.

Pick up your trash

Don’t drink and drive
