- Slip n Slide
- Splash pad
- Basic rules are the same as normal wiffle ball. The rules below are typical for kids.
- The group is divided into two teams
- The pitcher throws the ball to the batter. (For young children have an adult or older youth pitch.)
- For young children, let them swing at the ball until they make contact. For older children, each gets to receive three pitches before they are out.
- There is no tagging out of base runners.
- There are three zones. A ball hit into the singles zone is a single. Into the doubles zone is a double. Into the triples zone is a triple.
- If it doesn’t make it as far as the singles zone, then it is an out.
- A fielder may stop the ball to prevent it from going into a higher zone.
- Set up your zones at distances which are appropriate for your age group.
- A ball caught in the air is an out.
- A player who makes it around all four bases, scores a point for the team.
- Team with the most points after five innings wins.
- Use the kiddie pools full of water instead of bases. Runners are “on base” when they are standing in the pool.
- If you want to make it extra cold, put some ice in the pools also.
- Optionally, add some sprinklers to the sides, between home and first base and between third base and home. Position them so the runners will get wet when running these paths.
- A slip n slide between third base and home is also a fun option.
- Also consider using a splash pad for the batter’s box.
You could also play a kickball game with your youth group this way.
