This week’s Theme: SPORTS JERSEYS. With the Twins playing in town, and the start of our kickball season, we invite everyone to wear their favorite baseball jersey, t-shirt, hat, etc. to kickball this week. New Teams – themes are important. Each team dresses up according to the theme and there are special “Best Dressed” prizes handed out at the bar. The full social schedule is available here.
Shirts Update: Our shirts have been ordered (they should arrive next week), but we expect you to wear baseball jerseys this week anyways!
Schedule/Scores: Following games each week, every captain and home plate ref is responsible for texting both team's scores to our GMOT inbox (612-467-9252). You can also email them, and a game write-up and photos, to the same inbox at editorGMOT@gmail.com. We are finalizing the full season schedule, but week 1 and two are available here. Remember to also text your flip cup scores!
Note to team captains – find Jackie when you arrive at the field for a new scorebook for this season.
Alcohol Policy: Remember everyone, Minneapolis Parks has a strict no-alcohol in the park policy and have their own department to patrol this. No visible cans, coolers, etc. Keep it classy kickballers! And consider yourself warned.
Charity Update: If you’ve played past seasons, you know how much fun our charity nights and mid-season/end-of-season parties can be during the season. We are excited to announce that we will be supporting Adopt-A-Classroom this season. Are you interested in helping out? If so, let Shannon know!

Team/Player Policy: WAKA is a social sports league open to all skill levels. Our goal is to have a league full of teams that participate on and off the field. All teams are encouraged to join us at The Pint, our league sponsor bar, following each week’s games. All teams are also eligible to have free agents added to their team if needed to ensure all teams are "full" within our league.
