Declare for the CLUBWAKA WINTER KICKBALL DRAFT! This is a unique kickball experience, as players join as an individuals and will be placed on a team following a selection party. This is the absolute best way to meet new people and make great friends this winter!
There will be a minimum of 8 games for every team; however, we will fit as many games into the schedule as we can once teams are registered.
After the games, CLUBWAKA Kickballers will enjoy drink and food specials
The coolest part of winter league is the draft. Each player who enters the league as a free agent will be selected by a captain at our annual live draft party! For more info on how the draft works, please see "About The Draft".
Don't want to enter the draft? Round up your friends and create your own team.
Here is how the draft selection process will work:
Everyone who wishes to participate in the draft will sign up as an free agent through the league website. You do not need to select a friend group if you are declaring for the draft. Signing up as a free agent will get you placed in a draft group.
A CLUBWAKA representative will e-mail you a brief web survey to gather some information from you prior to the draft. This information will be included in a packet provided to the captains prior to the draft.
Captains will consist of one male and one female per team. Players interested in being a captain will be placed in a queue once both participants are registered for the season. As enough players sign up to constitute another team formation, the next set of captains will be pulled from the queue list to captain that team.
NOTE: To be eligible to captain a team, both captains MUST be available to attend the Draft Party/Meet N Greet in order to select your team.
Captains will select their team color once they have been designated as captains. A team name must be decided upon prior to the draft party.
The captains will take turns selecting their teams from the available player pool at the League Draft Event
The draft will 'snake' in order, with the order reversing every other round.
DRAFT LEAGUE FAQ
Q: Do I have to be a part of the draft to play this winter? A: No. Participation in the draft is encouraged, but not mandatory. If you would rather start a friend group and create a team, you are welcome to do so!
Q: Is trading allowed after the draft? A: It's not recommended, but we will do our best to accommodate player request.
Q: I want to play with my significant other/friend. Can we be drafted together as a "package deal"? A: No, allowing package deals would skew the roster sizes and leave the draft unbalanced. If you do prefer to play with a specific person, please note it on the web survey you complete, and the captains will take it into consideration when making their choices. While we can't guarantee that you'll both be drafted to the same team, we generally are able to make it work. If you want to guarantee that you'll play on the same team, please sign up and create a friend group. You will not be included in the draft but will be assigned to a team with the most space on their roster.
