KC Beep Kickball Adult Tournament
Kick it with your friends and play Beep Kickball for a great cause!
CCVI and Alphapointe are hosting a one-day Beep Kickball Tournament for adults on Saturday, October 9. The event, held at the Urban Youth Academy, will guarantee three games of kickball and provide a fun opportunity to shed light on visual impairments. Form a team of 7-10 players or register as an individual and be placed on a community team!
Beep Kickball is an adaptation of Kickball for those who are visually impaired, using a ball that beeps and two bases that buzz.
There are seven players on each team. On defense, five players wear a blindfold in the field, and two are sighted spotters. One blindfolded offensive player places and kicks the beeping ball from home plate then runs to a buzzing base, either first or third. If the runner reaches the base before a fielder picks up the ball, they are safe and score a run. If a fielder picks up the ball first, the runner is out. Three outs, six innings, or time expired, game over!
8 teams minimum, 16 teams maximum. 3-game guarantee, randomly seeded tournament.
Concessions stand at Kansas City Urban Youth Academy will be open and adult beverages will be available for purchase. Please drink responsibly. No outside food or drink.
All proceeds benefit Alphapointe and CCVI's programs and services for children and youth who are visually impaired.
