Sometimes, work is just plain stressful. We've all been there!

Here are 11 ways WAKA can make you happier after work:
1. You'll be surrounded by positive, happy people who love to have fun. Team bonding is a cure-all after a long day!

Last Friday, April 17th, thousands of people started their weekend by celebrating their love of kickball on National Kickball Day.
A teacher in Los Angeles challenged her students and fellow teachers to a kids versus adults kickball game after school. Several players in corporate offices from Denver to Boston challenged their colleagues to pick up games on their lunch breaks. Kickball teammates in Houston dressed up for a stop light theme party and played beer pong by the pool. Players all over the country enjoyed games, parties, team challenges, and bar crawls and shared their kickball stories and photos on social media with hashtag #mykickballday.
Back in 2012, a group of WAKA players sat at the kickball field in Huntington Beach, California discussing their love of kickball costumes and dreaming of brightly colored fanny packs.
The players realized that they were onto something good, and decided to start a new team. They invited friends from nearby WAKA leagues in Fullerton and Irvine to join, then got down to business planning team costumes and the new team name. “I thought it would be funny if we just showed up in bathing suits” says team captain Lena R. “Then someone said Beaches be Crazy and boom! The team name was born!”
For most WAKA Kickball & Social Sports players, socializing with teammates over a beer is a favorite part of the league experience. Regardless of whether they are looking to beat the heat and prevent their beer from sweating or to win MVP points with their friends, WAKA players have developed some pretty great ways to drink their favorite beers. From beer pong to sippy cups, we've compiled some of the most creative and ridiculous ways WAKA players drink their beer of choice. Check out these special drinking vessels and let us know which is your favorite in the comments:

It's kickball night. It's time to get your game face on. You throw the ball around with your teammates and promise yourself you won't drop a pop up tonight. Then you take in the sights at the field and think...
1. “Tonight, I am definitely getting on base.”
2. “I’ll take it easy at the bar so I can rest up for the WAKA party on Friday.”
3. “Is that guy wearing a purple body suit?”
4. “Whoa, the other team brought a flip cup table, speakers, and strobe lights. Next week, we’ve got to step up our game.”
