Yes! And...'s Annual Kickball Tournament
June 9, 2013
This year's Kickball Tournament was fun for everybody! Among the picnic-like atmosphere under the trees, teams sat ready to do battle on the kickball field. For an afternoon, everyone was transported back to third and fourth grade recess and it was awesome. We saw the reign of the team from Germantown Mennonite end with the crowning of the Halo Hackers as champions. Check back next year for your chance to knock them off their throne.
Thank you to our sponsors:
Next year, you can sign up as a team, connect with an already established team or just come and hang out, watch, and eat. The entire day is a fun family event, filled with food, friends old and new and friendly competition on the Kickball field!
We love kickball because it's retro, because it's radically recreational, and because it welcomes a range of ages, creeds, and body types. Kids love it because it's a game, and adults love it because it's a game that makes them feel like kids.
In this spirit, the rules of the Yes! And... Collaborative Arts Kickball Tournament are as follows. All of the basic rules of baseball and softball apply (four bases, players must run the bases in the correct order, etc) with the following special changes:
In keeping with the spirit of Yes! And...'s mission, we request (but do not demand) that each team have at least 3 kids (defined as under 18 years of age) on the field at any given time. After all, the reason we love kickball is that kids love to play because it's fun, and we love to play because it lets us feel like kids.
Who? You, 9 friends, & Yes! And...
What? Kickball! Kickin' it grade school style!
When? Next June!
Where? Blue Bell Park (W. Walnut Lane at the circle.)
How much? Teams of 10 register for $250 and individual players can register for $25. Spectators can come, watch and eat for $10!
Why? Help us raise scholarships (we call them "camperships") for kids from Philadelphia to be able to attend one of Yes! And...'sSummer Collaborative Arts Camps
