Your passion is kickball, your strife is managing all the fun and games each week. Last week, WAKA Kickball & Social Sports players shared their struggles with finding balance between WAKA life and everyday life with the #WAKAproblems hashtag.
1. “Frantically digging through my stack of same-colored shirts to find one with the current season's bar logo AND year on it because my team has been together for so many seasons...” #WAKAProblems - Katherine C.
2. “Getting to work early so you have time to nap before your 9:15 WAKA kickball game.” #WAKAproblems - Erin C.
3. “Losing my cleats, or wallet, or cooler at the fields. Again.” #WAKAproblems - Mike W.

August 13th is International Left-Handers’ Day so WAKA Kickball is highlighting left-handed kickball players who are rocking the fields.
While Lefties account for around 10 percent of the population, they have a reputation for dominating the world of sports. Here are 5 stories from left-handed kickball players about their experience in the game and what it means to be a lefty:
David plays on team Rumspringa with a group of friends he has known since elementary school. He grew up playing baseball and loves to play center field and catcher. “The most challenging thing about being a natural left was having to train my brain and build muscle memory to bunt down third base with my right foot.” - David

International Left-Handers’ Day is Wednesday, 8/13 and we are celebrating all over WAKA Nation! Left-Hander's Day has been around since the early 90's and celebrates left-handedness and raises awareness of the difficulties and frustrations that left-handers experience every day in a world designed for right-handers. You can join the celebration by challenging your team to play and drink like a lefty all night.
Earlier this summer, we asked you to capture your Summer Selfie photos and share them on social media with hashtag #WAKASmiles.

Here’s a round up of 9 of our favorite WAKA team summer selfies so far.
While you’re rolling with your WAKA friends this weekend, make sure capture a #WAKASmiles summer selfie and share it on your favorite social network.
