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 2-15 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.

About Us

TX Republic is Wednesday night kickball in Austin, TX. We are known for great kickball, our unmatched post-game experience, legendary parties, and a year-round social schedule with something for everyone! Republic is committed to keeping the spirit of kickball alive in every game, and as such has an established "no bunting" rule for teams who choose that division.

This league has a legacy trophy that is passed down each season from champion to champion.  We'll also be having a "social scavenger hunt" throughtout the season in which teams will accumulate points.  There will be sporadic weekly prizes as well as an end of season award.  We call them "Life of the Party Points."  Check out the breakdown HERE and get yourself camera ready this season!

View the Kickball Rules and League Tournament Guidelines
TX Republic is a super-social league, and champions are not eligible for the National Founder's Cup Tournament in Las Vegas. They are, however, eligible for extremely long, awkward hugs from Mike Harris (league rep.)

Board of Volunteers

Head Referee: Positions Open! - If you know the rules and think you might be a decent ref, reach out to Tom (the league rep).  There are a lot of perks (free registration the following season, VIP status at WAKA parties, resume-builder).  Plus you'll finally have power over something, so you don't go all Office-Space-freak-out on people.

If you would like to lend your skills to make the league better, contact league representative Mike Harris at mharris@kickball.com
