WAKA's Rock N Roll Classic in Scottsdale

Over President's Day Weekend 2014, 13 WAKA Kickball teams from across the Southwest went to Scottsdale, Arizona to play and party at the WAKA Rock N Roll Classic - a weekend featuring lots of live music, a kickball tournament at Esteban Park and 3 incredible parties in Old Town Scottsdale. Not only was the weekend a blast, through the generous support of WAKA players in attendance, the event raised more than $2,000 for Arizona's Children Association.
 
Nearly 250 players were in attendance to represent their home leagues and cities. Hailing from as nearby as Phoenix and Tucson, and as far as Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and Denver, many new friendships were forged over the 3 days of socializing, camaraderie, and competition.
 
At the end of the weekend, only two teams could be called the best - the best at kickball and the best at having fun of course! The local Phoenix teams represented their home city well: Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death took home the competitive kickball championship trophy and the Platstered Penguins were voted most "fun team" of the weekend by their peers.
 
Here's what the Rock N Roll Classic attendees had to say:
 
"It's days like this that make me so happy to be part of such an amazing family" #WAKARocks!
"The only bad part about these weekends is that they have to end. Miss you guys already!"
 
"This weekend was just as epic as I thought it would be. Getting involved with WAKA kickball was definitely one of my better decisions since moving to AZ."- Jon C.
 
"It should be illegal to have this much fun. GAME DAY!" - Amy H.
 
This was the first WAKA tournament of its kind in Phoenix and was such a hit, the team is already working on the next one. WAKA's next big event is a Ski Trip to Mammoth CA, 'SnowFest 2014', on March 21-23. For more information, check out WAKA Events!
