We love cute hats and side ponys during the summer — anything that keeps our hair back while still adding a bit of style. From getting the perfect tournament braids, to keeping sweat out our eyes while we sprint to first base, here’s how we’re getting our hair gameday ready during hot summer months:

This weekend we’re in Austin, Texas for Keep WAKA Weird Weekend! We’ve  been having a blast with a ‘Weird WAKA Costume’ Bar crawl (aka anything from your costume trunk), pool party at Barton Springs, ‘Daisy Duke and Boots’ brunch, and a round robin kickball tournament with teams from Texas, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.

Last weekend, we headed to California for a non-stop, action-packed, summer camp adventure with more than 300 WAKA people.
 
Located at the Canyon Creek Campground in the middle of the Castaic Mountains near Los Angeles, the camp is the perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life.
 
With activities like color wars, ropes course, dizzy bat races, slip n slide kickball, archery, kick golf, pool parties, and an electric forest DJ set—it’s a weekend getaway designed to help campers kick back and vibe the day away. To say it’s one of the more magical weekends of the year would be an understatement, but there really is no other way to describe and do it justice. Good thing pictures speak a thousand words…

Check out these photos from the weekend and join us at WAKA Summer Camp in Virginia and Texas

We’re always on the look out for inspiring stories from the WAKA community and this week we have a big milestone to celebrate!  

On June 6th in Hollywood, California, Padraic "Paddy" C. played in his 1000th kickball game. No, not one hundred… one thousand!


 
ONE THOUSAND KICKBALL GAMES. The fact that he even kept track is an achievement in of itself.  
 
One thousand kickball games is a commitment to the game and the sport itself - to play fairly, to play hard, and to display great sportsmanship.

At the end of our epic WAKA Summer Camp in California, we welcomed David Moss from The Harold Robinson Foundation for dinner and a chance to share summer camp stories through the lens of the people who know it best.
 
To kick off the evening, David shared the HRF’s mission to provide the funding and resources to send Los Angeles's less fortunate children to camp, in a safe and nurturing environment, far away from the stress that most of them face on a daily basis. Then, he showed a short video about the Canyon Creek Retreat Center, the campers, and families who benefit from their work.

Summer officially kicks off this weekend, and we’re packing for camp! This year, we’re hosting THREE ridiculously awesome adult summer camps that, we promise, are totally worth emerging from your air-conditioned cave for. From pie eating contests to hiking scavenger hunts, we've already built your summer bucket list... all you have to do is pack your bag and show up.

Here are 11 more reasons to look forward to partying at camp with WAKA this summer: 

1. The realization that there are no camp counselors.

2. The thrill of learning something new.

A volleyball game is a whirlwind. It's fast. It's sweaty. And from the first serve to the final point, players experience a full spectrum of emotions. Want to join us for a game? Find a league here!
