Hack-It-Ball Games

HACK-IT-BALL GAMES

Kick-IT, Hack-IT, Smack-It (KHS) Game: every part of the body can be used for the game so kick-it, Hack-it with any part of your body, or smack it with your hands, no rules on getting it over the net, and make up your own point system or play to 15 points.

Singles: takes two players to play, one on each side of the net, serve distance should be at least 6ft away from the net and only the server can score points. When the server loses the rally the defender now gets to serve and score points, games can be two games to 15pts, tie breaker to 11pts or make up your own point system. Field size is 10 feet wide by 30 feet length and the net is in the middle of the field, so coverage is 15 feet on each side. When you serve or return the footbag must land inside of the playing field or it’s out of bounds.

Doubles: takes four players total to play, two players on each side of the net and the serve distance can be 6 feet or deeper. Only the server can score points, but the players must take turns serving the footbag, so when team A serves loses the rally and team B serves and loses the rally then the second player on team A now gets his turn to serve and vice versa.

Cut Throat: Three players to play, two players on one side of the net and one player on the other, make up your own point system or just play to fifteen points, this game is great exercise for the single player who’s going against the two players on the opposite side of the net.

General Rule:

• Out of bounds is outside the imaginary line of 15ft x 10ft, so if the ball lands outside of these boundaries you either lose the serve or score a point.

• The footbag can’t touch the net during the serve, ONLY, it’s okay to touch the net during the rally, and depending on which side the footbag lands on you either score the point or win the rally to serve.

• No part of your body can pass the net, because the net is to low so your entire body must stay on your side of the playing field.

• Three hit maximum rule – during the rally when the footbag is hit over the net the defending person/team has three hits to get the footbag back over the net, or they can just kick it right back with one hit but no more then three attempts to get it back over.

Playing Doubles

Doubles:  Doubles all rules are the same as the singles game, for beginners the palm up serve and return applies, intermediate/advanced all body parts except the hands and arms can be used, the rally is the same, kick the ball over the net to score or win the serve back, keep the ball inbounds, the only difference is there are two players on each side of the net.

Doubles serving: only one team member can serve, when the opposite team wins the rally the ball goes back to that team, each player gets to serve by letting the other team member serve, no player can serve twice in a row, so if team A player one serves, the next time team A serves player two serves, that keeps all players participating in the game.

Games:  two games to 15pts, tie breaker to 11pts, switch sides after the first game, and winner with the highest points gets to choose their side if a tie breaker has to be played, so each team member gets a chance to serve, but remember only one team member gets to serve, when the opposite team wins the rally the ball goes back to that team, and the 3pts rules still applies.
