Key Info

  • Price: $75.
  • 6 week regular season starting June 27th, 2018!
  • Games are Wednesday evenings, 6PM and 7PM.
  • All teams make the playoffs. 2 consecutive Wednesdays, June August 15th and August 22nd.
  • Team rosters must consist of 8 males, 8 females, 18 total players minimum, 26 players maximum.
  • 11 players on the field at one time (minimum 4 guys, 4 girls).
  • Don't have a full team? No worries. You can sign up as team, a small friend group, or a free agent! We will place you or your group on an existing team that needs players. CLUBWAKA Kickball is a great way to get your friends and co-workers together or to just meet new people!
  • What if I don't have any kicking skills? Doesn't matter. This is a social league built on FUN! Some even say the "post-game" at the bar is more important than the games themselves!

**You must meet all three team minimums (18 of total players, 8 of females, 8 of males) BEFORE the league becomes password protected to ensure free agents are NOT added to your team. If you do NOT meet the three requirements, the coordinator can and will add free agents/friend groups to your team in order to meet the league requirements.**


Key Game Rules

  • Games are 6 innings or 50 minutes, whichever comes first. 
  • All kicks must be made by foot or leg, below hip level. Any ball touched by the foot or leg below hip level is a kick.
  • A count of four fouls is an out.

Full Rules


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, it's not a big deal, we will add a small group or free agents you to your team to make a full roster!

Small Groups

Do you have a group of friends (anywhere from 2-10 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 another 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 CLUBWAKA 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!

Corporate Teams

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. Any additional questions, email Janice Lemieux at janice@clubwaka.com.

Where We Play
This season our games will be played at Colt Park in Hartford, CT @ 6PM and 7PM on Wednesday nights. The best way to find the fields we play on at Colt Park is to GPS:

10 Hendricxsen Avenue, Hartford, CT 06114

(You'll want to park at 222 Huyshope Ave, Hartford, CT 06114 because that is the entrance to the lot across from where we play. See map below)
 
Note: Do not GPS "Colt Park" it will bring you to a completely different area of the park that is not near where we play!


Where We Party

After the games, we head to our sponsor bar, The Russian Lady! All specials are honored at The Tavern as well. So come mingle, hang out with your teammates and enjoy our awesome specials!

191 Ann Uccello St.
Hartford, CT 06103

Specials are:
$3 Drafts and $6 Pitchers of Miller Lite or Coors Light
$4 Drafts and $10 Pitchers of Blue Moon
$4 Smirnoff Spiked Seltzer's
$3 Shot of the Week
$6 WAKA Bites

One thing to note: Everyone wears their kickball shirt to the bar afterwards. Trust me if you change your shirt you will feel out of place! Don't be that guy (or gal).
