History of National Kickball Day

Kickball or soccer baseball is the same in most of Canada. Like the rule of baseball, two teams compete for points together by running around the bases to get points. Instead of using a small, hard ball with a stick, the player will kick an inflated rubber ball. The team that runs longest to the end of the game will win. It is often introduced to school-age children to better understand the national baseball game. It is also common among adults, who are generally known to play similar games such as softball and baseball.

National Kickball Day is launched by WAKA Kickball & Social Sports, the nation's leading social sports and Events Company that organizes kickball tournaments for thousands of people each year in the United States. Kickball, has derived from the name, Kick Baseball, was born since 1917 by Nicholas C Seuss, Supervisor of the Cincinnati Park Playgrounds in Cincinnati, Ohio. Seuss submitted a draft of the game including 12 rules and field maps in The Playground Book, published in 1917. The United States Department of the Army promoted Kick Ball as a game for soldiers as early as 1943.
