A few days ago we asked WAKA Kickball & Social Sports players to share their weekly team rituals and traditions to get some new ideas for fun at the fields.
We found that WAKA teams have lots of different traditions including team songs, cheers, and celebratory cocktails. Many of these traditions have become super important to WAKA players and are a big part of their games each week.
Check out these ten ideas and start a new tradition with your team this season:
This month, WAKA Kickball & Social Sports kicked off the 2015 event calendar with a ski trip at Keystone Resort in Colorado, and the Rock N Roll Kickball Classic in Scottsdale, Arizona. In case you missed either of these epic events, here’s a recap of everything you need to know:
1. WAKA kickballers played a snowy game at the base of Keystone Mountain in Colorado.
2. Then they took over Keystone Village with a Neon Bar Crawl
3. Two teams from Phoenix competed in the finals of the Southwest Regional Tournament. Dry Heat Won over the Haters gonna Hate and won a spot to play in the Founders Cup World Kickball Championship this October.
While all WAKA leagues offer a fun and happy escape from the 9 - 5 every week, each league is a little bit different and reflects the unique personalities of the players in the area. To highlight the local flavor of these awesome leagues and inspire you to try fun things with your teammates, we’re giving your the inside scoop in our new WAKA League Spotlight series.

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.
