How to kick a kickball according to Live Strong:
Stand 4 feet behind home plate. You don't have to attempt a kick if you get a ball that is on the edge of the strike zone or is bouncing.
Take your first step with your opposite leg. If you are a right-footed kicker, step forward with your left foot first to get yourself in a good kicking position. If you are left-footed, step forward with your right foot to put yourself in a position to drive the ball with your left foot. Generate power by bending forward at the waist as you move towards the ball. Use your arms to help gather momentum and then make an explosive kick by following through after contact. Try to bring your foot up to hip level after contact.
Kick the ball in its midsection and extend your leg after you make contact. You don't want to kick too low on the ball because that will send it high up in the air and give infielders and outfielders a chance to catch a pop-up. If you kick the ball at its midsection and then follow through with your leg, you have a chance to drive it for distance.
Kick the top of the ball if you want to keep the ball on the ground. For example, your team may be tied in the bottom of the last inning and your team has a runner on third base. In order to get the run home, you do not want to hit a fly ball or pop-up that can be caught. You want to hit a ground ball that can get the winning run home. Do this by kicking the top half of the ball.
