Here are the official rules of National Kickball Association.
  • Helping you get lucky rule: All teams are required two members of the opposite sex on the field at all times. If a team does not have 2 members of the opposite sex playing, 2 members of the primary sex must sit out per absent member of the opposite sex.
  • No more than 9 players on the field; you must field a catcher at all times

  • Kicking lineup=9 or more; you don’t have to play the field to kick
  • A kicking lineup must be submitted to the umpire before the start of each game.

  • outs per inning
  • fouls is an out
  • Mound is out
  • Only for the runner advancing to first base.
  • Also, on a caught ball you may throw to the mound for a double play if the base. If there is more than one base runner then going to the mound will only force out the lead runner but you may also go to the previous base of a non-lead runner to force them out.
  • On a caught ball if a base runner has advanced past their next base then when returning to their original base they must retouch the base they just advanced past in order to not be forced out.
  • innings per game
  • 10 run rule limit per inning
  • 12 run limit at the end of 3rd inning to win the game
  • The “Kirk Clause”-if the game is tied at the end of regulation 2 players will be removed from defense every inning thereafter (this is an own team decision)
  • If ump is sober enough to know the infield fly rule he can call it
  • Championship will be the undefeated team coming from the winners bracket versus the champion, one-loss team coming from the losers bracket.
  • If the one-loss team from the losers bracket defeats the team from the winners bracket then there will be a second game to determine the champion. The undefeated team is only required to defeat the one-loss team once in order to be crowned champion.
  • The Championship game(s) will be 5 innings
  • Ump’s decision is final

  • Absolutely NO DOGS, NO COOLERS or any OUTSIDE FOOD and DRINK. Don't worry fatasses and drunks they will be selling good food and enough liquor to kill Tara Reid.
  • Drinking is encouraged at this event for it will impair motor skills and provide ample excuses for lack of ability.
