CAPTAINS
Are you a captain or aspiring captain wondering about how to start a team? First, you want to register yourself & start a "friend group". Your friend group will become a team after registration closes. Here's some videos to guide you through the process. Also review WAKA's Captains Duties.
  1st, Do this --> How to register yourself  |  2nd, Now this --> How to create a friend group

CORPORATIONS, GROUPS: ALUMNI OR GREEK, RESIDENTS (apt or condo communities)
Thinking your company would be interested in sponsoring a whole or partial team? We have an easy registration option for organizations on the registration page. These 2 videos will help out. Learn more about why groups play WAKA Kickball at kickball.com/corporate-teams.
  1st, Do this --> How to Register a group  |  2nd, Now this --> How to create a friend group

FREE AGENT INDIVIDUALS AND SMALL GROUPS
Plan on going solo or joining with one or two friends?   Perfect.  That's actually how a lot of teams are formed. Nearly 50% of the players in the league first started as free agents or small friend groups.  That's how easy it is to meet new people and make new friends. So don't worry - go ahead and sign up and we'll be sure to check with you to place you on a team that's a perfect fit for you. And, if we can't get you on a team, you get your money back - guaranteed!

TEAM STATUS AND ROSTER REQUIREMENTS
Every registered team starts off as a "Friend Group." A friend group does not reach official team status until they have at least 7 players of each gender registered or at least 14-16 players on the team. Teams are required to have a minimum of 14 (7M/7F) registered players or a maximum of 26 players. The league has field limitations, so reaching a confirmed team status is strictly on a first come first serve basis. To guarantee a spot in the league, make sure your teammates get registered ASAP! 

Any other questions beyond Registration FAQs? Contact the Montgomery Community Coordinator.
