What you need: You need a standard red kickball, an outside wall, and at least seven players.

How to play: One player is chosen to be the hitter, and the other players are runners. The hitter stands with the ball in his hands 15-20 feet away from the wall, and the runners stand at either end of the wall.

The rules: At the starting signal, the runners run back and forth to each end of the wall. As they are running, the hitter throws the ball, trying to hit a runner. If a runner is hit, he is out of the game.

How to win: The last runner who avoids getting hit by the ball is the winner.

What else you need to know: The winner is the hitter in the next round of the game.
