An all-time gym class favorite has definitely got to be kickball. Everyone can play and everyone can have fun doing it! This is a creative twist to the game of kickball, and is definitely one that kids will love to play. It will work with anyone ages 7 and up. Even the high school kids enjoy playing it in gym class! Here's how to play.

What You'll Need

  • 3 Hula Hoops
  • Home Plate
  • Kickball
  • Enough players for 2 teams

How to Play

The rules of Krazy Kickball are very different than the rules of regular kickball. First, set up the bases by placing the 3 hula hoops in place of where the normal 1st, 2nd, and 3rd bases would go on a baseball diamond. Also, place home plate where that belongs.

  1. Each team on defense must make 2 outs, not 3.
  2. There is no "kick 4 foul balls and you're out" rule.
  3. You run the bases backwards. Normal 3rd base now becomes 1st base. 2nd base is the same. Normal 1st base now becomes 3rd base.
  4. Each player must round the bases TWO TIMES before coming to touch home plate. For example, if I kick a long ball that would normally look like a home run, it may not be. I must run and touch inside each hula hoop representing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd bases and then instead of going home, GO BACK TO FIRST BASE, and round the bases again. Once I reach 3rd base a second time, then I can try to make it home.
  5. You do not need to run to the next base when the ball is kicked. If you are on 1st and the ball is kicked between 1st and 2nd, you can stay inside the hula hoop on 1st base.
  6. You may have multiple people on any base. There is no limit to how many people can be on base, as long as you have the next person in order kicking, and everyone fits on the base.
  7. You may lap people that have kicked before you. If you are on 1st base and someone is on 2nd base when the ball is kicked, you may pass that runner on 2nd without penalty.
  8. If you commit to going to the next base, you must go. Once both feet are out of the hula hoop, you must proceed to the next base, regardless of where the ball is. If you return to the base you came from, you are out.
  9. You may start running to the next base when the pitcher starts to pitch the ball. You don't need to wait until the ball is kicked to start running.
  10. Runs are scored every time someone touches home plate.

I've played this with grade school and high school kids alike and they all seem to enjoy it. It gets their heart rates up and adrenaline flowing, which means you are running a good gym class. Be sure to try it out, the kids will love it!

      For crazy kickball, do you need to tag up if the ball is caught and you are off th base, or do you just run no matter what? What if the hoola hoops get moved while running the bases? Thanks. Playing this tomorrow with 6-8 graders!!

      I love this hub! I think this game is just as useful for teachers as it is for parents! I will be trying this out with my class soon. We play a group game weekly and think this would be a fun one to try.
