Registration FAQS

General Information:

Kickball registration generally opens 2-3 months before the season scheduled start date. This allows WAKA to create the teams, game schedules and order shirts and equipment, etc.

We strongly recommend that you register as soon as registration opens as WAKA does not hold spots and works on a 1st come 1st served basis.

Registration closes on the date noted on the league website or sooner of the spots fill up. Team captains do not have the option of holding spots and friends group invites do NOT guarantee a spot for you.


Teams & Players:

- Teams are co-ed & consist of players 21 years of age and over (by the scheduled start date).
- Some leagues are designated 18 year old and over and it will be noted on the league website. 
- Players are not guaranteed a specific amount of playing time nor specific positions on the field or in the kicking lineup.
- Teams may have up to 26 players, WAKA sets the final team rosters and may need to add players to balance out the teams.
- Returning teams from the prior league's season may be allowed to pre-register(varies by league) to guarantee a spot in the league.

Starting a Team:

A group leader needs to be the 1st one to register. Once you register and pay, you will have the option of creating a friendgroup. Once that is done you can invite others to join your group.


Player Eligibility:

- All players are required to have their own health insurance as kickball is a sport and sometimes results in an injury.
- Only registered players who are on your roster may play. WAKA will conduct random roster checks and illegal players will result in a forfeit and the captain being suspended.
- All players must wear an official WAKA shirt for that league and it must be the correct team color.
- Players wearing a cast or walking boot (moon boot) are not eligible to play. Knee braces, ace bandages and wrist casts are acceptable but only at the players own risk. Pregnant women past the 1st trimester is an unnecessary risk and there-for not eligible to play. WAKA reserves the right to make the final decision on any players eligibility to play due to injury,  illness or general safety concerns.

WAKA is a social organization:

WAKA is a social organization that plays a children's game for fun. Sometimes referee calls are made that may not be consistent with competitive sports leagues. This is to insure the integrity of the social organization and to serve our primary goal of having fun. Overly zealous players and people who feel they must win at all costs may find themselves in conflict with our social organizations philosophy and are encoraged to find another organization to join. All players are strongly encouraged to attend our social functions, parties and league bar after the games.  Most WAKA Kickball games are self refereed meaning players from other WAKA teams are asked to ref other games. With that in mind we do not have professional refs so we ask players to read and understand the rules prior to the start of the season.

WAKA reserves the right to suspend or remove players from the league for violations of the park or league rules and general unsportsmanlike conduct against other players on or off the field. Remember we play for fun!


Zero Tolerance Policy:

Unsportsmanlike conduct is completely unacceptable and can result in a player suspension for up to the entire season with no refund!
Fighting, abusive language and personal attacks on indiduals via social media outlets are not tolerated. People who infringe on other people's rights to have fun may be asked to leave.


Team Captains & Co Captains:

Captains are approved by WAKA and can be removed at any time by WAKA. All captains must read and agree to the "Captain's Responsibilities" section.
