Let's get WEIRD in Austin for a weekend full of fun, kickball, and friends! Our second annual Keep WAKA Weird Weekend on April 8th will raise money for Club Blue, a local Austin charity! This year we will be playing at the Travis County Softball Complex, just minutes from downtown Austin!
Club Blue is a young professional's organization that supports the Boys & Girls Club of the Austin Area through volunteer events and social events. There are over 60,000 kids that live in poverty in Austin and the Boys & Girls Club serves 12,000 of them! Through Club Blue, you can make a difference by spending time in the clubs with us or attending one of our events to raise awareness for our cause.
How It Works
Registering for the tournament is just like registering for a WAKA team. If you are a captain, you'll create a friend group and then have your friends register and select your team from the dropdown. If you are a free agent or small group just looking to join the fun, no worries, sign up and we'll find you a team!
Your team can consist of as many players you wish, but just make sure you have the minimum requirements to field a team, per the standard WAKA rules. We recommend at least 13 players on your roster with a minimum of 5 girls and 5 guys. Costumes, walk of shame outfits, team shirts are all welcome! Afterall, this is WAKA Kickball and that's what we do!
All teams will be guaranteed 3 pool play games. Prizes for costumes and teams who bring the fun!
Are you a captain or aspiring captain wondering about how to start a team to play in the tournament? First, you want to register yourself, then start a "friend group". Your friend group will become a team after registration closes.
Thinking your company would be interested in sponsoring a whole team for the tournament? We now have an easy registration option for this on the registration page. Or if you or company is interested in our other sponsorship opportunities, see below.
We are currently in need a few paid referees for the tournament. Please email the Fun Games tournament director, Megan Lundquist, at Lundy@kickball.com if you are interested in officiating this fun event!
