We've all heard someone snark, "It's kickball, not bunt-ball!", but the truth remains that the short game is still the most effective way to get base runners on. A popular kickball team strategy is to bunt a few people on, move them into scoring position, and then rip a line drive to score some runs.

Sounds easy, right? Well, not so fast. Bunting a kickball with the right accuracy and pace is not only a skill, but dare I say, an art form. We reached out to some of the best kickball bunters in the game today to get their tips and feedback.

After reading this blog (and many, many reps at practice), the goal is for you all to be painting lines like these tremendous players do.

When you are juggling work, family, and grown up life-ish things, that’s when you need to play on a social sports team. That may seem a little crazy, but having a scheduled weekly kickball game is like having an accountabiliy partner for fun. Being on a team helps to ensure that you make time for yourself and stay connected with your friends. 

The WAKA kickball team Dude I Can Kick (D.I.C.K.) from Albuquerque, NM has been playing together since 2012 and has created a close kickball family where players can play as much as they want, and can always have a spot on the team if they need to take a season off for family or work.

Now that summer is officially over, we're getting excited about fall sports and activities. One of the best ways to stay active as the cool weather strikes is to hit the bowling alley for a happy hour or bowling league night. Bowling is a perfect activity where you can meet new people in small groups and get an effective and fun indoor workout regardless of how many pins you knock over. It's estimated that an average player can burn up to 300 calories during an hour of bowling! 

In case you haven't been bowling since grade school, we put together a photo gallery of hilarious photos from theme nights at WAKA Kickball & Social Sports bowling leagues. These will have you amped up and ready to play in no time! Find a bowling league and sign up today!
