This August, WAKA Kickball & Social Sports hosted dozens of parties and costume theme nights around the US - and took a cruise to Mexico! There were enough WAKA league parties, pool parties, costume nights, and after-game events to keep players partying all month long while showing off their creativity and team spirit. Here are some of the stand out events from August: 

1. WAKA's TX Cruise to Cozumel

2.  Mad Max Theme Week

3.  Famous Duos Party

Friends, happy hour cocktails, and a smart phone in your hand. These days, most of us are juggling a million emails and phone calls and are plugged into our devices all the time. Whether we’re hanging out at the pool or going to a concert, we end up staring at screens and responding to notifications for the majority of the day. 
Having our smart phones, tablets, or laptops always at the ready can create a lot of FOMO, anxiety, and stress. It can also be limiting to your social life if you are glued to your screen instead of interacting with the people around you.
Could joining a social sports team be just what you need to take a break from technology?

The kickball team ‘Boston Social Club’ played their very first game together at WAKApalooza Weekend 2014. The players were from different WAKA leagues around Boston, and joined up to travel to Las Vegas for the WAKApalooza Fun Games.
The group was a mix of veteran and new kickball players - some with more than ten years of experience, and others with just a few seasons under their belts. They didn’t have a team name, but that really didn’t matter. They were going to Las Vegas with 3,000 other kickball players for four days of parties and tournaments.

You can tell a lot about someone’s personality by the way they kick a ball. Here are 6 of the archetypal kicking styles that we see at WAKA Kickball games– which one are you most like?

1. Power leg: You're confident and self assured and kick the first ball thrown at you as hard as you can. It doesn't matter what the pitch looks like, you believe in yourself and can do what it takes to get the ball out of the infield.
