Kickball Love Stories

Love is definitely in the air today as we celebrate Valentine’s Day. Here, WAKA players share their stories about love and kickball on this special day.

Who's a better 1st baseman?

“My boyfriend and I met during the Summer Season of 2010 here in the NY Mid-Hudson league. We were at a 80's themed kickball end of season party. He was interested in my madonna lace gloves and we argued over which of us was the better first baseman. We started dating during the Summer Season of 2011 and have been together ever since. Attached is a picture of us together after our team "The Surf-Ninjas" won the 2012 NY Action league's Summer Championship. The trophy is displayed in our living room today. Thank you WAKA for bringing us together!” -Kaila

#WAKALove Vine Contest

Hello WAKA Nation! With Valentine’s day quickly approaching, we thought it would be fun to kick off the month with a contest. The winner of the contest will win a free registration for the sport you LOVE the most!  (This goes without saying but it’s obviously a free registration for either WAKA kickball or WAKA dodgeball.)

The contest rules are simple. Create a 6-second animation using Vine on your iPhone showing us “WAKA Love” and share it on Twitter, the app that lets you take six seconds of stop motion animation. Be sure to use the hashtag #WAKALove so we can find you and enter you into the contest.
