Program Description

This after school registration program is offered to the Gr. 3 & 4 classes of each of the 10 community schools from Monday to Thursday during May & June. The schools all play outside on a host school’s ball diamond against each other in this fun league. The kids learn the rules of the game, code of conduct, teamwork and gain confidence during play. A nutrition component taught by the PAPHR Food For Thought Nutritionist is included for each of the schools involved in this league.

Kickball is a playground game and competitive league game, similar to baseball, invented in the United States in the first half of the 20th Century. Kickball may also be known as kick baseball, base soccer, soccer-base, or soccer-baseball. It is essentially baseball where players kick the ball to bat it instead of using bats (this makes it more accessible to younger ones).
