In 2010, Beep Kickball was founded by Judy Byrd while volunteering with the Atlanta Beep Baseball Team. She noticed all the players were older teens and adults and wondered what sport the younger children played. Then it came to her – Beep Kickball. Same rules, different ball! She can be contacted at 770-317-2035 or JudyByrd@gmail.com.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of all people who are visually impaired through participation in sports. The direct benefits are the same as any team sport: confidence, leadership, perseverance, camaraderie, exercise, and sportsmanship. The indirect benefits to this group are those that impact their everyday lives: increased mobility and agility, independence as well as a willingness to try something new. The athletes say “If I can do this, I can do anything!”
Beep Kickball is currently being played in over 400 locations across the nation! Over 500 balls have been sold to date.
ALL staff, including the director, are unpaid volunteers and ALL profits from equipment sales are donated to Camp Abilities, an educational overnight sports camp for children with visual impairments. Donations are welcome!
