Weekly Kickball for the Playful Soul

  1. Updates

Wednesday night kickball with coworkers is the best way to conclude a day of play. Even after four recesses, three class game times, and a two-hour training at our 18 elementary schools across San Francisco, our Coaches still have the energy and playful spirit to participate in a World Adult Kickball Association league. 

WAKA has adopted Playworks as their charity of choice this season. Along with hosting many fundraisers, bar parties and get-togethers to raise money for our cause, our San Francisco team is joining in on the fun.  Our experience at kickball has brought us together and built a feeling of camaraderie and teamwork that we will carry over into the rest of the school year. 

We showcase our unity on the field by sporting our vibrant Playworks t-shirts, telling our competitors that we play games for a living and to not take us for granted. We root each other on and fully engage in each game. Whether we kick a homerun or get out on a double play, we all cheer and give high-fives because in the end the score is always fun to fun, right? It is obvious to all spectators that every single person on our team is having a good time. WAKA kickball has given us an opportunity to showcase our teamwork, passion for games, and our collective spirit.
