Trying to plan a fun date night out (or in) with your kickball crush? From a farmer’s market cooking adventure to an ugly sweater craft night, this great list of fall date ideas from WAKA Kickball & Social Sports players will help you pump up the fun and romance– even in chilly weather.
Catch an autumn sunset in a local park. The leaves are changing so there are lots of romantic settings to take advantage off. Bring a picnic dinner, bocce ball, and a portable speaker.
There’s this certain energy when going on a ski trip that makes it different from any other vacation. Maybe it’s the fresh mountain air, or the opportunity to play like a child in the snow. Regardless, ski trips are super fun whether you ski, snowboard, or prefer hanging out mountainside in the hot tub.
Halloween costuming and WAKA players go hand in hand, and we eagerly await this time of year to hold the Halloween Costume Photo Contest and to see the ridiculous and wonderful photos that are submitted.
WAKA players seemed to celebrate Halloween for weeks this year and we were insanely impressed with the creativity, ingenuity, and downright awesomeness of the costumes. With more than seventy-five entries, selecting the winner for this contest was definitely a doozy. Thank you to everyone who entered and shared a photo and congratulations to this year's Grand Prize Winner - Cristina P. from Los Angeles! Her team Mario costume photo is absolutely fantastic!
The Halloween Costume Photo Contest entries are in and voting for the “WAKA People’s Choice award" is now closed.
The grand prize winner (as selected by WAKA) and “People’s Choice” winner will be announced on Wednesday, November 4th! Thank you all for sharing your creative costumes with us!

WAKA is working with WAKA league members and participants across the country to collect interviews about their lives and experiences playing kickball and social sports and having fun adventures in "adulting". Over the next few months, WAKA will share these stories using Instagram with hashtag #mywakastory to inspire new adventures and to create a visual archive of the current generation of WAKA players. WAKA hopes that players from each social sports league will participate, and that the project fosters meaningful connections and new ideas within the WAKA community.
