Let’s see if we can try and answer some of your most likely questions, but, if you still have any questions after reading this page, email us at fun@koalakickball.com!

What is K.O.A.L.A. Kickball?

K.O.A.L.A. Kickball is an adults only co-ed kickball league that strives to bring YOU fun during the middle of your week!

Where are your kickball games played?

We now have four leagues! Our Miami Lakes league plays its season at PSN Park (also known as Norman and Jean Reach Park), located on 7901 NW 176 Street. Our first game for our Miami Lakes league is on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. We also have a league at Tropical Park, located on 7900 SW 40th St. Our first game for our Tropical Park league is on Thursday, April 20, 2017. Our second season of our Cutler Bay league opens on April 26, 2017, with games played at Bel-Aire Park, located on 18500 SW 97 Avenue, Cutler Bay.

Our first season of our newest league is about to open in Pembroke Pines, and games are played there at Brian Piccolo Park, located on 9501 Sheridan St, Hollywood. Our first game there will be played on Tuesday, April 25, 2017.

When do you play your regular season kickball games?

We can’t release a team’s full schedule until after we know the number of teams that are going to register, but ALL of our Miami Lakes regular season games are held at either 7, 8, or 9 pm on the following Wednesday nights: 4/12, 4/19, 4/26, 5/3, 5/10, 5/17, 5/24, 5/31 (playoffs are at PSN Park on Saturday, June 3).

ALL of our Tropical Park regular season games are held at either 7 pm, 8 pm, or 9 pm on the following Thursday nights:  4/20, 4/27, 5/4, 5/11, 5/18, 5/25, 6/1, 6/8 (playoffs are at Tropical Park on Sunday, June 11 at Field 4).

I see that you guys talk about a playoff tournament. How does that work?

EVERY team is invited to playoffs regardless of their regular season standings. The playoff bracket that we use for the playoffs is determined based on the total number of points that a team earns during the regular season, but, again, EVERY TEAM is automatically allowed to play into the playoffs when they register.

When are playoffs held?

Unlike our regular season, playoffs are NOT held on a weekday. Instead, they’re usually held on a Saturday or Sunday. This coming ninth season for our Miami Lakes league, playoffs will be held on Saturday, June 3 at PSN Park, while for our seventh season at Tropical Park league, playoffs will be held on Sunday, June 11 at Field 4 at Tropical Park. For our second season at Cutler Bay, playoffs will be held on Saturday, June 24 at Bel-Aire Park, while we still do not have a playoff date for our Pembroke Pines league (but we will announce it as soon as we have one).

Do you guys organize any kickball practices?

No, we don’t organize any practices, but you can always go to a park and practice on your own time! And there’s almost always space available for you to practice at PSN Park, Tropical Park, Brian Piccolo Park, and Bel-Aire Park before the start of your game!

How many people do I need to form a team?

You need a minimum of 11 adults to form a team, with four of those adults HAVING TO BE females. But because people usually will miss games, we always recommend that a team have a few more people register for their team so that they always have enough players on the field. Besides, the more the better!!!

Can I sign up my entire team myself?

Nope. We need every person to register him or herself and agree to our terms and conditions.

What if I don’t have enough people to make a team?

Don’t worry! We’ll do our best to give you free agents to a team. However, please understand that if too many teams don’t sign up full teams, then we’ll have to combine teams so that each team has a minimum of 11 players.

Can I sign up on my own and be placed on a team?

Absolutely! You may always sign up on your own and let us worry about placing you on a team!

How much does it cost to join K.O.A.L.A. Kickball, and do you charge per team or per adult?

The current price for the league covers: 1) 8 regular season games, 2) a playoff tournament, 3) a team t-shirt, and 4) food and drink specials at Sports Grill after games. We charge per adult, and for our current Tropical Park, Miami Lakes, and Cutler Bay seasons, our regular season price is $55/adult. For our first ever season at Pembroke Pines, our price will remain at a special, discounted price of $45/adult.

Do I have to pay immediately after registering?

We highly, highly, highly recommend you pay immediately after registering through PayPal, which will immediately pop up after you register. You won’t be allowed to play unless you have paid the league before the season starts.

Are alcoholic drinks allowed?

At Tropical Park, the answer is NO.

At Cutler Bay, the answer is NO.

At Pembroke Pines, the answer is NO.

At PSN Park, the answer is YES, BUT… if you choose to drink alcohol at games, you MUST NOT give any alcohol to anyone under 21 years old. Please place any adult beverages in a separate cup (and don’t bring any open containers anywhere to the park or dump them anywhere in the park).

Remember: YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION (and not K.O.A.L.A. Kickball). Drink responsibly. This is something you agree to when you register as part of our Terms and Conditions.

What happens if it rains and games get cancelled?

We may have to change the start time of a game we had originally scheduled at a certain time (or add an extra game on a certain day) depending on whether we have to postpone games because of bad weather. Please keep your regular season nights flexible because we may have to adjust things throughout the season and we don’t want you to have to forfeit a game.

Do you have a bar sponsoring you where we hang out after games?

Yes!!! After each of our Miami Lakes regular season games, we go to Sports Grill (Miami Lakes), located at Royal Oaks Plaza on 15462 NW 77th Ct, where they offer $6/pitchers and $1 drafts Wednesday nights for everyone 21 and over. After each of our Tropical Park regular season games, we go to Sports Grill (Bird Road), located at West Bird Plaza, 11481 SW 40th St.

Do you have any pictures online?

Where can I find out more about the rules?

What are Weekly Themes, and how do they work?

Every week, we have a competition based off of our Weekly Theme. Examples may include “Superheroes and Villains,” “Wacky Socks,” and “U.S.A.” The team that shows the most team spirit for that week’s Weekly Theme will enjoy a small gift from us at Sports Grill!

How is the parking situation for game days?

At PSN Park, you have to park on the grass surrounding the park and not inside the gated parking of the park because the park ranger will lock you in at 9 pm (and this has happened to a couple of our players)!

At Tropical Park, you may park on any available parking space inside the park.

At Bel-Aire Park, you may park on the available parking space inside and outside of the park.

At Brian Piccolo Park, you may park on any available parking space inside the park.
