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 2-8 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 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.
