Maybe it’s the spirit of the Olympic games, or that feeling that summer is winding down, but WAKA players have been especially stoked to share their league championship photos on Instagram this week. Seriously... there were so many big winners and we're loving all the awesome trophies from around CLUBWAKA. Check out these winning shots and start looking ahead and preparing for next season!
We’re always on the lookout for inspiring stories from the WAKA community and interesting WAKA people to get to know. This week, we have two sweet stories from WAKA couples who've shared photos and exciting details about their growing families…
Bridget & Mike
In Worcester, Massachussets, Bridget is the league photographer and volunteers with league fundraising events for their league charity partner, Diamond is the Sky. Her husband Mike plays on team ‘Zero fox given’ and the couple is expecting a new addition to their kickball-loving family in February.
We are EXCITED to announce that WAKA Kickball & Social Sports is now CLUBWAKA!
Throughout the years, we’ve expanded the number of ways you can have fun, however our company’s brand has remained narrowly focused on kickball. We often receive questions like… “Why does my t-shirt say Kickball.com when I play volleyball?” We agree!
In order to be more inclusive, we are officially changing our name to CLUBWAKA!
When it comes to moving to a new city, there are so many exhilarating moments and adventures around every corner. It’s a super exciting time, but it can also be daunting to meet new friends and build a new network.
Luckily, we’ve got your bases covered with weekly social sports leagues and events so you can join up, find your new crew, and focus on having fun in your new place.
We can’t get enough of the Olympics so to celebrate, we're hosting a Brazilian-themed sports party.
Whether you’re a super fan whos planning to spend the next two weeks glued to the TV, or just a casual spectator who likes watching with friends, we've got you covered with these ideas for how to host an easy Olympics theme party.
To start, invite your WAKA teammates and friends for Backyard Olympic Game day. Set up game stations for your favorite backyard events like bocce, pool volleyball, table tennis, and basketball.
We're all about some solid theme nights, Bud Light parties, and kickball love stories to keep us rocking through the summer. Here's a collection of some of our favorite moments captured and shared on Instagram in July:

2. "Yesterday’s theme was beach bods. I’ll tell you what, joining kickball was one of the best decisions I’ve made." via @Marcie_88
The summer heat has us thinking of ways to cool off while still having fun in the sun. Luckily for us, we’ve got an adult summer camp on a lake coming up in Marble Falls, TX and we can’t wait to try everything. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should be getting a spot in the bunkhouse and joining us in Texas this September:
1. The jam packed activity line-up to suite your every whim
WAKA Summer Camp is a perfect balance of all of your favorite things. Start the day in the lake, end your day in the pool. Take it back to your childhood with capture the flag, archery, arts and crafts, and a team talent show. Then feast on s’mores, and dance the night away under the stars.
Over the weekend in Jacksonville, WAKA Kickball & Social Sports hosted the Southeast Regional Kickball Tournament with more than a dozen WAKA teams from around Florida and Georgia.
Along with a full day of kickball games, attendees had the chance to enjoy a tournament after-party at the Suite Lounge and a Sunday Funday Bar Crawl. The four semifinalists qualified to receive an invitation to the Founders Cup World Kickball Championship in Las Vegas on October 2016.
