We asked 2 of WAKA’s Co-Founders to share some of their favorite memories from the past 16 years of WAKA Kickball & Social Sports. Check out these videos with Johnny Lehane and David Lowry and hear what they had to say:
Kickball Day is Thursday, April 17th and that is the best news we've heard all year! Many players and fans will be celebrating Kickball Day and sharing their love of the game. In honor of this day, here are some fun things that you can do to celebrate:
Throw a kickball with your four legged friend on your morning walk.
Play a pick up kickball game with your besties and a cooler of your favorite drinks.
From a “onesie” party at the slopes to a plentiful presence of neon and 80‘s gear, WAKA players were all over Mammoth Mountain last weekend for the first ever WAKA Snowfest! More than 285 players took over the lodge for a weekend of skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and WAKA style fun and games!
A big thank you to everyone who helped make the event a blast and participated in this year’s event! We can’t wait for the next one!
After 16 years of WAKA Kickball & Social Sports, it’s time to crank things up a notch and thank our community for all your support. That’s why we’re throwing the first official KICKBALL DAY brought to you by Daysoftheyear.com on Thursday, April 17th — celebrating our love of kickball and all the WAKA Smiles that have been created throughout WAKA nation.
Many WAKA teams like to design team logos that help their team stand out at the fields and the league bar. Whether the logo is printed on a team t-shirt or as a team banner, a unique design can be a fun way to show off your team’s personality and style!
Here are some great tips from Michael Winfield, a WAKA Kickball & Social Sports Community Coordinator, about the best way to create a logo for your team:
Step 1: Come up with a logo idea
The easiest thing to do is to build the logo around your team name. The immediate image you think of often helps build the bigger picture. In our experience, literal imagery works better than the abstract.
St. Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest celebrations of the year, and WAKA players are the first to get in on the action to host unforgettable St. Patrick’s Day parties and pub crawls! Every March, in bars all over the US, you will find enthusiastic WAKA people dressed in green, carrying kick balls and having the time of their lives– often raising money for charities along the way!
