Registering for the Texas Charity Tournament is just like registering for a WAKA 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 WAKA rules.  We recommend at least 13 players on your roster with a minimum of 5 girls and 5 guys.  Tournament T-Shirts are not included so feel free to wear team jerseys or costumes!

All teams will be guaranteed 3 games.  The top 4 teams from pool play will advance to a single elimination tourney in the afternoon and 1 team will be crowned champion!  Winning team will receive a trophy, which I'm sure they will promptly show off at the bar later that night!  See below for the full tournament schedule.

Kick-It was founded by a 10-year old cancer patient with a big dream- to cure cancer by playing kickball. Now a national fundraising program, Kick-it raises money for pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer research.

Where Do The Funds Go?
Funds raised benefit children's cancer research across the country. Kick-it partners with national medical advisory boards to identify the most promising research studies and projects such as:

 - A study of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors at Harvard Medical College; The Children's Tumor Foundation
 - Clinical research of the Children's Oncology Group, reaching 90 percent of the children with cancer in the United States

Why We Exist
We have one simple goal- to accelerate a cure for children with cancer. No parent should have to watch a child wait for a cure. By organizing a game, joining a team or making a donation, you are helping thousands of children fighting cancer in your hometown and across the country.
