It was a picture perfect day in Miami for our first charity kickball tournament with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). After a full day of kickball games, the Downtown Devils from southern Florida came out on top, and took home the tournament trophy.
For the event, we worked closely with LLS to come up with a fun and unique fundraiser that would help spread awareness of their cause. More than 150 people came to play in the kickball games and celebrated with us at the tournament after party and silent auction.  From the event, we raised more than $4,000 as a donation for LLS.

The 2016 National Kickball Day celebration finished on a high note with tributes to Prince, a crazy handstand kickball pitch, and league parties that lasted until the wee hours of the morning.

From bringing kickballs to work, to getting matching teammate tattoos (yes, real ones), WAKA players wowed us with a myriad of awesome kickball photos and stories. Here’s a recap of #KickballDay2K16… in case you missed it!

There’s a new viral dance trend sweeping through the social feeds and its made its way to the kickball field!
The Running Man Challenge started earlier this month with a group of college basketball players dancing the "running man" in a locker room while listening to "My Boo," (the 1996 hit by the Ghost Town DJs.) When the video was released on the internet, players from other college teams took up the challenge and now there are tons of team videos circulating throughout the world of sports.
WAKA players in New Haven took up the challenge this week and shared their video with us. Check out their wildly fun video and don't be surprised if you feel like dancing on the field tonight!

There's something about the sun, private island beach parties, and bar crawls in foreign lands that really brings out the best in people - and this year’s Bahamas Cruise was no exception.  
Last weekend, we had a ridiculously good time and made a ton of new WAKA friends while cruising from Miami to a private island, and then on to Nassau.
As any seasoned WAKA cruiser knows, there's as much to see and do on the cruise deck, which is always filled with sun-kissed, costume-sporting party people, as there is at any of the cruise stops.

Last weekend, we hosted our South Central Regional Kickball Tournament in New Orleans, Louisiana. Lucky for us, WAKA player Chris Biernat was there and filmed an incredible video of player Andrew Moise, doing a front flip at home base, and scoring the tying run for his team at the bottom of the final inning.

The video was shared by SportsCenter as a Top Ten play of the day! Watch their coverage of the play here: 

We have whole lineup of Regional Kickball Tournaments this spring and summer. Check out the tournament dates and get signed up to play!
