In this tutorial, we will learn what being on offense means.
A kicker can automatically earn a run for his team if he kicks a home run. A home run is when a kicker kicks the kickball beyond the outfield fence. Since kickball is usually played on a recreational field, make sure you know where the home run delimiter is.
Goals While On Offense
- arrive safely on base and become a baserunner
- help a baserunner complete the cycle of bases and score at home plate
REMEMBER: In kickball, a team scores when kickers get on base and safely advance through all the bases to eventually come back to home plate. The opposing team tries to get the kicker and baserunner(s) out before they can complete the circuit.
Transitions From Offense To Defense
Once the offensive team has three (3) outs, the half-inning ends and the teams switch roles. The team on offense now becomes the team on defense, and a new half-inning begins. We'll learn all about being on defense next.
