Kickball Rules are similar to Softball/Baseball rules with these specific exceptions.

No Bouncies. Pitched balls may not be fired down towards home plate and shall not be excessively bouncy. Teams can force a change in pitcher once an inning by shouting "we want a pitcher, not a belly itcher (three times)".
Kickers must kick the ball behind or on home plate. Kickers can not come into contact with a ball before it reaches home plate. Balls hit in front of the plate are considered foul. Two Foul Balls and you are out.
No Bunting. A ball must reach half the distance to first base to be considered fair. Bunt Balls are foul.
2 Foul Balls and you are out.
A Runner is out by force, but can also be called out if hit with the ball. Hitting a player in the face or any no-touch region will be considered safe and be awarded the base. Intentionally hitting a player in the face or jewels with the ball will lead to an expulsion from the tournament.
One Base Per Overthrow Balls that miss the base for a force out or miss the runner allow the player to advance one extra base only.
No Leading Players may only leave the base once the ball is kicked. Players that advance before the ball is put into play will be considered out.
Teams must have minimum of six players, maximum of 10 players.
Teams must have at least 3 women. Teams with less than 3 women will be penalized 2 runs per women difference in team rosters. For example : if one team fields 4 women and the opposing team fields 2 women. The team with the least amount of women will begin with the score of -4 runs.
Each Game consists of 5 innings or 45 minutes. Tie games shall be decided by sudden-death, best of three rock-paper-scissors play.
Each Team has 10 kickers per inning. The inning is finished when the last batter is called out or the ball is placed on home plate. If a team has less than 10 players, the kicking order will continue through the of the order. The first kicker for each inning is the corresponding kicker for each inning. For instance, the first kicker in the order kicks first in the first inning, the Third kicker in the order kicks first in the third inning. Capice ?
Weather Permitting, players who reach first base are awarded with a water balloon that can be used for defensive base running. It is recommended that each team have a first base coach to hand a water balloon to a player who shall reach past first base on their initial kick. Players who reach second or third base without getting a water balloon when passing first shall not be provided with a water balloon. Water Ballons should also not be throw at a persons face.
