Preteen Ministry Game: Kiddie Pool Kickball

I came across this game awhile back while scrolling through my Facebook feed.

This has potential to be the best game in the history of preteen ministry!

With spring summer upon us…this is the perfect game for preteen ministry.

See below the video for game instructions.

(As told by REMIX Ministries on their Facebook event page: Kiddie Pool Kickball)

  • 3-5 innings
  • 3 outs per inning.
  • Students in the field can have pool noodles to beat the runners as they round the bases.
  • To be safe on base you must sit down in pool.
  • Can’t run from base until ball is kicked, must slide into home for the run to count.
  • No bunting.
  • Best scenario is 15 to 20 on each team.
  • You will need to continually fill pools during the game.


  • We used 2 boxes of plastic sheeting 6mil 6’X100′ from Home Depot that we bought online for 33 bucks a box.
  • Roll out 50′ and fold under pool.
  • You never have to cut anything because the pool filled with water weighs it down.
  • Pull it tight as you fill the pools and it won’t go anywhere.
  • Repeat to each base.
  • We use the cheap bouncy balls you always see stacked high at a Walmart or Target.
  • Make sure to use tear free soap.
  • Use a little league baseball field instead of a lawn if you don’t have enough yard.
  • Lots of slipping and falling involved. Please play safe and at your own risk.
