Open Call for Kickball Superstars! Lace up your sneakers, join the fun, and don't miss your chance to relive your playground glory. Sign up now to participate in one of the fastest growing community sports in America. Individuals, small groups and full teams welcome! WAKA brings kickball games, parties, and friends together into one national sport and social club. With more and more people to meet, great parties, kickball tournaments, and events throughout the U.S., there's never been a better time to play kickball!

LA Recess is not your typical kickball league. As CLUBWAKA New Orleans' self-proclaimed "fun league," we cater to a more laid-back experience. Sure, we still like a good competition, but we always keep it friendly. You can expect to play with kickball fun rules every other week, and our vibrant social scene at the bar (our "playground") consists of more bar games than your typical kickball league (think Bar Olympics). If you are a kickball veteran who wants to sit back and just have fun, or if you're a rookie who wants to see what this whole "kickball" thing is about, LA Recess is definitely the league for you!

Please contact LA Recess Community Coordinator Jonathan Toups if you have any questions, concerns, or requests. You can also email him if you have any special requests for fun rules or special bar games. And if you would like to become more involed by volunteering for the Spring 2018 season, please get in touch. You can reach Jonathan at

Recess plays on Thursday nights in City Park, on the northeast (down-lake) corner of Harrison and Marconi. This league caters to kickball rookies and to regulars who are really just looking for a more casual experience. For kickball veterans looking for a competitive league, try our Triumph league, which also plays Thursday nights in City Park (at Pan Am Stadium on the turf).

See you on the fields and at the bar!


All regular season games are Thursdays at 6:30 or 7:30 at the kickball fields at the corner of Harrison and Marconi. Check back periodically as this calendar is tentative and will be updated from time to time. Our social calendar will be updated once we are closer to the start of the season.
