There’s a place for you at the event whether you’re an old pro whose been knocking red balls out of the park since grade school (Kick A— Division) or a casual gamer looking for a fun and social sport outing on a Saturday afternoon (Just for Kicks Division).

Come dressed to impress because best costume will land you prizes like all day passes to Boomers Amusement Park.

    During the games, players can join in on some 21 and up fun at Vavi’s Beer Garden and dance whatever energy they have left to the beats of a live DJ. Once all the fun and games start winding down, the fun keeps coming with an after party.

    The 3rd Annual National Kickball Championship runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the after party kicking off right after the games and going until 8 p.m.. The registration deadline is Thursday Sept. 9. For more info on all the kickin' activities at this year's championship head over to the event’s website.
