Dent, no.

Once it is broken down by the Sun's UV rays, it will crack and break if he hits it hard enough but it won't dent.

Crack and break? Why would I want that over aluminum or drain tile piping?

You asked about denting.

It will not crack or break initially but as the PVC breaks down in the sun's exposure, they become more brittle. Once they are brittle enough, they will crack if you step on them or drop a basketball from high.

Shame on you for even thinking of making the next generation responsible.

There is a downspout extension made of flat hose.
It clamps to the vertical leader and lays flat until water flow through- opens enough to allow the discharge
Here's one style-- http://www.homedepot.com/p/Frost-Kin...3#.Uc7uCfke00g

I tried this once, but wildlife was ripping it up.

Splash blocks get leaves and mulch blocking water flow. It looks like I may have to add the black drain tile back on. Only drawback is that this would be the only area the would have this type of extension. Everywhere else around my home has the white aluminum downspouts.

I would rather broom some leaves of a splash block(or your son can do it) than look at an ugly piece of black pipe- but that's me

Problem is I'm not always there to brush it off. Plus water will be near the foundation. Not good.
