DC Lightning is kickball in Washington, DC!  We are known for great kickball, an amazing 'post-game', and legendary parties!  Don't miss the action this year at the National Mall!  We play an 9 game regular season, with games on Wednesday evenings. Upon completion of the season, teams face off in a single elimination playoff tournament competing for the possibility of being invited to play in WAKA's National Founders Cup Tournament in Las Vegas on Columbus Day weekend.

Here's some other key info:

  • Cost: $75 through April 21st. Registrations for this Spring Season closes on April 21st 2014 (Season fee includes 9 weeks of games + Super Saturday playoffs, Team FLIP CUP TOURNAMENT, a team T-Shirt, 2 awesome parties (MSP & EOSP) w/ free beer and free food!!
  • 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, and will ensure your small group stays together!!!
  • WAKA Kickball is a great way to get your friends and co-workers together or to just meet new people, especially if you are new to the area!

Registration Information


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 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!


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.
