Registering for the Connecticut Charity Tournament is just like registering for a CLUBWAKA 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 CLUBWAKA rules.  We recommend at least 14 players on your roster with a minimum of 5 girls and 5 guys.  Tournament T-Shirts are included in the $45, but accessorize and get as spirited as needed!  After all, this is CLUBWAKA Kickball and that's what we do!  Your captain will have the choice of T-shirt color after registration closes.

Teams will still play three games during the tournament. At check in, we’ll be asking the captains to write down one Wacky rule that they would be willing to play during their game. We’ll put them into a hat and when the captains do Rock-paper-scissors, the losing captain will pick a piece of paper out of the hat. Both captains have to agree on the rule. If they don’t agree, there is ONE ‘repick’. Be wary that whatever rule that second pick is, you’ll have to play the game by! This will take place on each field. Examples are: Play cup/water bottle in hand. No bunting. Kick with opposite foot. So start thinking now of those wacky rules.

We’re adding a TAILGATE TROPHY! Playing on the charity side usually means you’re looking to have some fun playing kickball, donate to a great cause and still like to win. Well we want to see the best tailgating team out there! With teams coming from out of state as well as our local CT leagues, we’re looking for teams to get creative and one-up each other! We like to think we have some of the best tailgaters around (Fireballerz from our Thursday Hartford kickball league has done a slip n flip for playoffs in the past) so we want to see how other leagues and their teams party!
Points will be tallied based on three categories:

  1. Captains will submit a ranking each team’s tailgates, with the input of their teammates of course. We have a max of 12 teams, so you’ll rank them 1-12. These will have to be handed in before 2PM. This will give Josh and Katie (our two event coordinators) time to tally the scores. First gets 12 points, second 11 points and so on and so forth.
  2. Compete in our relay race that will take place during lunch! You’ll need a total of 7 players to compete in five legs of a continuous race (two of the legs will require two people to work together). Scoring again will be awarded: 12 for first, 11 for second down to 1 point for 12th. So start thinking of who on your team you want representing your team! Details for the 5 legs of this race will be shared in the welcome email.
  3. Participate in the scavenger hunt! There will be 12-15 items/tasks/etc listed. Your team will have until 2PM complete as many of the listed items as possible! You’ll turn in your sheet and proof so your score can be tallied.

‚ÄčThese three categories will determine who wins the inaugural Tailgate Trophy for the CT Charity Tourney!

**We’ll two sheets for you at check in. One with the teams listed and the second for the scavenger hunt.**

The best part about partnering with the MDA this year is that they will be hosting one of their walks on the same day! They will have participants at Rentschler, who after their walk, will come over and cheer us on. Just as we're excited to work with them, they are just as excited to work with us!
