What happens when a guy from Albuquerque moves to Southern California and starts a kickball team with a bunch of free agents who have never played adult kickball? A Krack-Family!

The Duke Cuty Krackheads have been playing together as a team since 2011 when their captain started the team with all free agents. Lucky for them, it was love at first sight and they’ve become the best of friends who do everything together. When they aren’t playing kickball, they go bowling, take group trips, and hangout as a team.They celebrate holidays together; KrackOween, Kracksgiving, Kracksmas and are getting together for Krackerbowl this weekend.

Whether it’s your first time captaining a team, a pre-season happy hour, or a Wednesday WAKA night, try one of these games to get to know your teammates better.

1. For your first team happy hour or game, write the names of popular celebrities, local heros, or professional athletes on stickers or masking tape. Put one sticker on each team member's back and have them ask the rest of the team yes or no questions to figure out who the person is. This game is a great for mingling at a bar and for striking up conversation with your WAKA crush.
