Baseball Field Soccer Game for Elementary PE


This PE game is a fun cross between baseball and soccer. It’s played on a baseball diamond, but by kicking a soccer ball to the outfield, while simultaneously dribbling a second ball to base.

To play this game with the kids, I recommend having lessons before hand where you practice dribbling, trapping, and punting. Then, playing baseball field soccer works out great as a follow-up to work on soccer skills.

How to play Baseball Field Soccer for PE or gym class

  1. This PE game was set up on a baseball diamond.
  2. Instead of bases I used hula hoops on the ground, with the exception of home plate which was a standard cone.
  3. Fielding team played traditional baseball positions.
  4. Kicking team needs 5 soccer balls.
  5. First kicker comes to home plate with 2 balls. The first ball is punted (I let them drop kick or kick from the ground as they are comfortable)
  6. The 2nd ball must be dribbled to 1st base and trapped in the hoop before the fielding team gets the punted ball trapped in the base. No hands are allowed — kicks only.
  7. Next kicker again has 2 balls, one punted & one dribbled to base.
  8. Fielding team can get either player out by trapping the punting ball into a base hoop. The game continues with the possibility of 5 balls being in play at once (1 on each base, kicker with punted ball and dribbling ball).
  9. To score at home, the dribbled ball had to hit the cone before the punted ball. It was a good paced game with some real focus on the dribbling and trapping.

Everyone had a chance to kick and practice. Baseball and soccer fans alike seemed to enjoy the game.

*note: I had 8 players on a team. I did not play 3 outs. Every player kicked and then teams rotated. Strongest punter should kick last as the person needed “home run” to score.
