WAKA Players! You have raised over $1 million for charity in the past four years alone! Now, we ask...do you think you can beat Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon to help put school supplies in classrooms? Here's how it works...

Have you caught that commercial recently that features a bouncing red kickball?

The ad is for DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that allows public school teachers to post classroom project requests – donors then decide which projects they’d like to donate toward. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class, and even include kickballs and other athletic equipment. It’s a great way to get much need supplies directly into schools.

How this Relates to WAKA Kickball Leagues

Lately, we've had a lot of requests from WAKA players from around the country who want to come to Founders Cup Weekend to play in The Kickball Games 2011 but are having trouble rounding up a whole team to play. We've also had lots of requests from teams that are registered for The Kickball Games 2011 and are looking for players to fill out their rosters.

Ever since the Founders Cup World Kickball Championship settled into the Pool Play/Elimination Bracket format, we've received questions about the bracket structure and why we do things the way we do. Why, for instance, we have brackets with fixed tracks for the various Pool Winners and Runners Up, instead of reseeding from scratch after Pool Play.
