What: Join us for the 19th Annual Kickball for a Cause as we bring together 600+ young people, ages 21+, for a day of kickball, picnicking and more! Teams play in round-robin lightning games in the morning & early afternoon. Winners of each division advance to a single elimination tournament later that day. In addition to raising funds for two important nonprofits - Proud Haven and Foster Love Project. The $550 team fee includes 3 refereed kickball games (with the potential to move into playoff rounds), your team's t-shirts, a DJ, food, non-alcoholic beverages, complimentary alcoholic drink ticket(s), and Zero Waste.

Cause Partners: Our charities are hand selected by our PUMP members through nominations and voting. This year our Causes are Proud Haven and Foster Love Project! https://www.pump.org/kickball-for-a-cause/

2. On Thursday August 11th we will host a Zoom Captain's Meeting from 6:00-6:30 pm. Teams are welcome to have as many players as they want at the Zoom meeting, but they must have at least 1 representative.

Weather Policy

Kickball for a Cause is a rain or shine tournament. Games will be played in moderate rain. If needed, games played on dirt will be shifted to the grass.

In the event of lightning we will sound an air horn to stop all play. All participants and attendees should get into a safe spot to wait. Games will be resumed according to our flash to bang policy, as listed on our website.

In the event we stop play, captains will receive an email with further instructions from PUMP staff as soon as we have updated information on the weather delay.

Flash to Bang Method:

In the event of lightning, a flash to bang method will be used. A flash to bang method is used to determine how far away lightning is. Every 5 seconds between a flash of lightening and a bang of thunder equals 1 mile. The field will be evacuated if there is less than 15 seconds between a flash of lightening and the bang of thunder. Game play will not continue until the severe weather passes and there is more than 15 seconds between the flash of lightning and the bang of thunder.
