Are you a captain or aspiring captain wondering about how to start a team? First, you want to register yourself and then start a "friend group". Your friend group will become a team after registration closes. Here are some videos to guide you through the process.

Then do this one --> How to create a friend group
Thinking your company would be interested in sponsoring a whole team?
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 percent 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 put 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 REQUIRMENTS
Every registered team starts off as a "Friend Group.” A friend group does not reach official team status until they have at least 4 players of each gender and at least 14 players on the team. Teams rosters house a maximum of 26 players. Being a league that sells out regularly, reaching a confirmed team status is strictly on a first come first serve basis. So to guarantee a spot in the league, make sure your teammates get registered ASAP!
FL CENTRAL is the best way to enjoy Thursday - playing kickball! We are known for great kickball, the best playing fields in Central Florida, an amazing ‘post-game’ and legendary parties! Don't miss the action this year at Smith Center and Chico's/Whiskey Dicks in Downtown Orlando! We play a 7 game regular season and a single-elimination tournament that lasts 2 weeks.
View the Kickball Rules and the League Tournament Guidelines.
We are headed back to the Original WAKA Fields, James R. Smith Neighborhood Center. Our games will be palyed at 7PM and 8PM. The best way to find the feilds we play on is to GPS:
1723 Bruton Blvd Orlando, FL 32805
There is plenty of parking at the neighborhood center and overflow parking across the street at the church. Best fields in all of Central Florida!!! Bring on the debauchery!
After the games, Chico's Tequila Bar & Whiskey Dicks in Downtown Orlando. That's right! We're too big for just 1 bar.
Chico’s and Whiskey Dicks are located at:
50 Central Blvd, Orlando, FL 32801
If you have never been to Chico’s or Whiskey Dicks, well, its awesome. This is where the kickball parties really happen! This seasons specials include: $7 domestic pitchers, $3 wells, $2 drafts & $2 PBR Tallboys. Whiskey Dick's also does a bottomless wing/beer combo for $15 up till 10 pm.
The best place to park is the library parking lot on Central, across the street from, wait for it......The Library. A couple things to note: Everyone wears their kickball shirt to the bar afterwards. Trust me if you change your shirt you will feel out of place!
- Player shirts will be handed out week 1, before the first games.
- The season schedule will be posted approximately 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.
