This game is called ‘Super Kickball’. Start with the lines from a basketball court. If you’re outside you can use cones or markers. You will actually use just the sidelines
from the basketball court. One team will be the kicking team (they can wear pinnies). One team will be the fielding team spread out in the playing area. The teacher or leader will start with the ball in the middle. To start, roll the ball to a kicking player, and once the kick has been made, the whole team (yellow players) will try and run to the other line on the other side and
then back again. A point is scored for every trip there and back. Or they can choose to stay on the first-base. Runners can continuously run on a kick and can go back and forth over and over to score many points in one round. The blue team tries to get 3 outs. Players can get out by tagging runners with the ball or throwing the ball at the players and hitting them as they
run. An out is also made if they catch a pop fly. After 3 outs the round ends. Any play is over once the fielding team passes the ball back to their pitcher. Once that happens, players can no
longer run, so whatever base they are on they must stay there. That’s it for this idea!

    So let's just say that the ball was kicked and 5 players ran to the other sideline and back… That would result in 5 runs for the kicking team? Just want to make sure that I understand the scoring.

    I'm play a version of this and its also helpful to make a rule that outfield can play the ball of the walls n ceiling. This is needed when playing in a confined area like the gym.

    Also, I saw the below comment but want further clarification. let's say after a ball is kicked, the entire 15-20 kids run to the other side and back..& if within that time 3 tags have been made while the kids are running A) if 12/15 kids make it back that team gets 12 points, (counting ALL who made it) B) what happens to the kids who make it as the 3 outs are made & after 3 outs are made? Their run doesn't count?

    does the kicking team have to stay together? can half stay at "first base" while the others go all the way to score? What if whole team stays at first, do you turn around and pitch it to someone over there?

    Notes for my lesson: 1) divide class into teams of 10. Team A goes first then team B and so forth. 2) place my numbered cones behind the kicking line. students randomly select a cone. Use my app to randomly pick a number. I pitch to that number.

    Just played this with 3rd and 4th graders and have the kicking line split into 4 colors w/ 6 cones of each color. As the pitcher I yell out "yellow 4" and that is the student who kicks. All students run after the kick. We play 10 outs per "inning"
