Urban Athletics: Kickball for Grownups (Co-ed)

  • Jul 9, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's time to get kicking. Kick your neighbor. Kick your brother. Kick the big red ball. Just don't kick your dog. Game. On.

If you don't know, now you know ...

If you've never played the game of kickball as a kid you must have grown up on Mars. But as a quick primer, it's a game with rules similar to baseball -- except instead of using a bat to hit a little ball, you use your feet to kick a ball about 10x the size of a baseball. Kick the ball, run to the base, avoid getting your ball caught mid-air or yourself tagged out. Easy. And no athletic skill is necessary, just the ability to kick! Go out and practice now to get ready. Kick the postman when he delivers your bills. Kick that neighbor who won't turn down his stereo. Just get kicking!

If you haven't played the game in 20 years, here are the general rules we will be using with a few modifications. http://www.neighborhoodsports.us/Rules/KickballRules/tabid/155/Default.aspx

A $3.00 organization fee will be collected at this event, your host is in the running for hardest working person on meetup.

The important stuff ...

• This is a co-ed game so ladies don't be shy to sign up. And it doesn't matter if you have no athletic ability, you just have to be willing to have a little fun.

• Dress for physical activity! You'll be kicking and running so wear your sneaks, shorts and a t-shirt.

• Rain or similar un-favorable weather cancels the meetup. Not!

• Check the meetup site before leaving for last minute updates as well as my mobile phone number.

• Please DO NOT RSVP if you do not seriously plan to attend as space is limited. No flakes allowed! If you RSVP and I notice that you have a number of no shows or have a history of last minute cancellations, you will be removed.

• Sorry, no guests allowed for this one.

    July 9, 2014

    • AJ

      Yes it would!!! Affects your playing time and when we are setting up teams. But we would understand.

      July 9, 2014

    Hi. I'm out for tomorrow. I slipped climbing Mt Washington this weekend and sprained my ankle (small fracture). I feel like a total flake. Kevin, I have a doctors note I can show you so I don't get banned for life!!!

    July 8, 2014

    • Kevin

      Oh no. See, if you had come with us to the Adirondacks this past weekend you'd still be healthy. :-p Feel better soon.

      July 8, 2014

    • Virginia

      Nice!! Lol. I hope you guys had fun. And have fun tomorrow.

      July 8, 2014

  • Jenn D.

    I really wanted to come but I have too much on my plate atm. Hope I can make the next one!

    July 8, 2014

  • Kevin

    Peeps, my mobile number is[masked], contact me if you have questions or issues tomorrow. Make sure you check this site BEFORE you head to the park for updates in case of weather related issues. Other than that, I ask of you just four things:

    1) Try and be on time, coming late throws a wrench in the works and you short yourself on playing time.

    2) If you can't make the event, change your RSVP NOW to not attending and DON'T be a NO SHOW! People stuck on the waiting list will gladly take your spot.

    3) BRING WATER. It's summer and I don't want anyone dropping from dehydration.

    4) When you get to the park, come see me directly so I can sign you in -- please bring small bills for the meetup fee.
