The Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation Department announces the launch of youth and adult kickball leagues. Three different leagues are being offered: men’s, co-ed, and youth. The men’s and co-ed leagues will play games at the Council Bluffs Recreation Complex with men’s games on Friday evenings and co-ed games on Sundays. Youth leagues will play on Saturdays at either Roberts Park or Sunset Park.
Registration for Kickball runs from July 8 – August 16 and the season begins in September.
“We’re pleased to bring Kickball to our lineup of recreation activities. Kickball presents an opportunity for kids and adults to participate in a team sport that doesn’t require a great deal of athletic training,” said Vincent Martorello, Director of Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation. “Anyone can play kickball; the rules are simple, homeruns are easy, it’s nearly impossible to strike out, and it’s a fun way to get some exercise and social interaction.”
Kickball is a game combining elements of soccer and baseball wherein a pitcher tosses an inflated rubber ball to a person on home plate who kicks it and proceeds to run the bases.
