Macie Berlin, CEO/PLAYER EXPERIENCE
Macie first learned about Kickball365 in 2015, when she and a fellow friend from Santa Barbara played in the Mile High Kickball Open. She went on to visit new cities, meet new friends and eventually turned her enjoyment of the sport into a business decision when being part of the acquisition team in early 2021. Macie studied Feminist Studies and Exercise and Sports Science, an unpopular combination, but one that has helped fuel her passion for equal rights, especially in athletic settings. A full-time market researcher, Macie is privy to turning customer feedback into valuable business decisions and changes. She is excited to help grow the Kickball365 name and brand and continue to provide opportunities for others to join in on adult recreation.

Zachary Shewmaker, Consigliere
Zach started playing kickball in a local league in 2012 but played in his first Kickball365 event - the Georgia Kickball Open - in March of 2015. He caught the proverbial competitive kickball fever and never looked back. After captaining/co-captaining two circuit teams and serving on the Rules Committee, Zach found himself dedicated to growing and improving the game. That dedication led Zach to join the Kickball365 ownership team. A lawyer by trade, Zach hopes to use his skill set to bring clarity and simplicity to the Circuit’s rule book, structure, and day-to-day operations. He hopes the new ownership’s vision will improve the already great competitive kickball niche.
