Key Info

  • Cost:  $73 (includes 7 weeks of games + 2 weeks of playoffs (on Wednesday's), T-Shirt, an awesome party w/ free beer and free food, and weekly discounts at our sponsor bar!)
  • For a complete team you need 8 females, 8 males, and 18 players minimum. There is a 26 player maximum per team.
  • Don't have a full team? No worries. You can sign up as team, a small friend group, or a free agent! We will place you or your group on an existing team that needs players. CLUBWAKA Kickball is a great way to get your friends and co-workers together or to just meet new people!
  • What if I don't have any kicking skills? Doesn't matter. This is a social league built on FUN! Some even say the "post-game" at the bar is more important then the games themselves!

**Important News for 2017 across all sports: You must meet all three team minimums (# of total players, # of females, # of males) BEFORE the league becomes password protected to ensure free agents are NOT added to your team. If you do NOT meet the three requirements, the coordinator can and will add free agents/friend groups to your team in order to meet the league requirements.**

Schedule

  • Games are Wednesday evenings at 6:00PM and 7:00PM starting April 26th, 2017!
  • 7 week regular season + 2 weeks of playoffs (on Wednesday's)!
  • Post-game we will all head to our sponsor bar for some food, drinks, and bar games!

Social Standings Schedule:

  • 4/26 Superhero Day
  • 5/03 Accuracy Kick
  • 5/10 Wacky Wednesday (mismatch)
  • 5/17 Relay Race/Captain Appreciation Day
  • 5/24 Scavenger Hunt Day

  • 6/07 Trophy Night (Create your own kickball trophy and bring it to the field)
  • 6/14 Social Standings Winner Announced- $100 Bar tab enjoyed!

Captains

  • Are you a captain or aspiring captain wondering about how to start a team? First you want to register yourself, then start a "friend group". Your friend group will become a team* after registration closes (*assuming you have enough players signed up). If you don't have enough players signed up by the deadline, its not a big deal, we will add a small group or free agents to your team to make a full roster!

Small Groups

  • Do you have a group of friends (anywhere from 2-12 players) who would like to sign up and play on the same team together? No problem!  What you want to do is register and start a 'friend group'. After registration closes, your friend group will be merged with other friend group(s) or free agents to make a full team.

Free Agents

  • Plan on going solo? Perfect. Nearly 50 percent of the players in WAKA leagues 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 put you on a fun team that's a perfect fit for you!

Corporations

  • Thinking your company would be interested in sponsoring a whole squad for a good team-building/networking activity? No problem. When you register you'll see an option for you to pay for any number of individuals. Then you'll get an email with coupon codes which you can pass out to your players when they register.

This season our games will be played at Colt Park in Hartford, CT @ 6PM and 7PM. The best way to find the fields we play on at Colt Park is to GPS:

10 Curcombe Street, Hartford, CT 06114
 

Do not GPS "Colt Park" it will bring you to a completely different area of the park that is not near where we play. You can find parking anywhere on Wawarme Ave or the cross street, Curcombe Street.

        

After the games we all head to our sponsor bar, The Russian Lady, on their new patio deck for some food, drinks, and bar games!  The Russian Lady is located in downtown Hartford at:

191 Ann Uccello St.
Hartford, CT 06103

Here are the post-game CLUBWAKA player exclusive food and drink specials!

$6 48oz Domestic Light Pitchers!
$3 Jameson Shots!
$4 Well Drinks!
20% off food menu!

One thing to note: Everyone wears their kickball shirt to the bar afterwards. Trust me if you change your shirt you will feel out of place! Don't be that guy or gal.

    
  
- Player shirts will be handed out week 1, before the first games.
- The season schedule will be posted approx 1 week before our first games.
- The season schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather and other factors beyond our control.
- We recommend all players read the game rules prior to the start of the season.
- Cleats are recommended but they are not required.  No metal cleats are allowed.
