Hey all you RPCVs! It is KICKBALL time!
I’m starting a cup-in-hand (every player must hold a cup with any type of beverage in it) kickball team to play in the KIFAC league. Below is some information. If you are interested in registering, please respond to this email. If you need more information, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.kifac.org/kickball.html
KIFAC: We are a recreational, cup-in-hand-required league, not a competitive one. That means if you want to wear cleats, hit people in the head with the ball, and in general relive your high school athletic career, this isn't the league for you. We are all about having fun, socializing, and enjoying a sunny evening.
• Game Dates: June 11 - July 23
Cook Park League (Denver) (Florida & Monaco) 6pm Tuesdays
• Teams play 1 game every week of the 7 week season, no playoffs
• 16 player minimum, but to account for absences, 17-20 are recommended
• As a co-ed league, all teams must be 50% male, 50% female
• All players must be at least 21 years old
• $60 per person which includes:
• All league fees
• A KIFAC t-shirt for every player
• The most fun you've had in a long time!
KICKBALL LEAGUE RULES
(I’ve chosen a couple, but a full list is available at http://www.kifac.org/kickball.html)
This is a social outing and anyone who gets out of control, bitches excessively or acts like an ass in general will be asked to leave. This is for fun--enjoy it as such.
The more the merrier on the sidelines so all friends, family and significant others are welcome to join us but not play, saving the on-field shenanigans for the folks funding the season. Friends are welcome to watch, laugh, and heckle, but not play unless a team is short and needs a sub.
Heckling is highly encouraged but should never be mean in spirit or tone.
For anyone who has never played kickball (or forgotten how), any rules not specifically covered or changed below will revert to those of softball.
Eleven people play defense, including the catcher. (That means five people in the outfield).
Of the 11 playing defense, at least five must be female. You can play with as few as nine people on defense, but if so, at least four must be female. If you don't have enough to do that, then you will officially forfeit the game. After forfeiting, you can field whomever you have present and play anyway. NOTE: Any team who forfeits a game will lose their right to a guaranteed team slot the following year.
Every team member who shows up for a game must bat (or 'kick' if you prefer). Kicking order must rotate girl, guy, girl, guy, etc. the entire game.
No cleats are allowed. Check your ego at the door and see Rule 1.
To increase the level of playing difficulty, all players (including batters) must have a cup in their hand filled with a beverage of choice, even if it is water. (If you choose to bring beer, it must follow the Denver City Parks Alcohol Policy.) Putting the cup into your mouth or dropping it prior to a catch is not allowed and doing so nullifies the catch. A cup is defined as a container without a handle or lid where the top is a larger diameter than the bottom.
No sliding and anyone who does will be out and shunned. Hopefully this one is self-explanatory. If not, please reference Rule 1. The one exemption to this rule is the use of Slip 'N Slides that are set up from third base to home. More info on that below.
