Funny Kickball Team Names

Kickball

(Before you go further, there’s an updated list here in a new website I’m building. It’s still under construction, but you can have a sneak peek now.)

Hi.  I’m a mid-Hudson league WAKA kickballer, currently on the DL since breaking my ankle during the championship game (warm-up) last fall.  This is my blog, which was getting major Googlage from “Funny Kickball Team Names” because I happened to title a post with that name a while back. Realizing that there was no comprehensive list of good kickball team names on the internet, I created this page.

I mined the World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA) websites looking for the most interesting names. The list below represents the cream of the crop from each league in the organization that had an informative website. I chose what I considered to be the best name in each league, with preferences given to a) the teams with the best records, b) the teams with the worst records, and c) teams that were aptly named for the division. (The best being “Untitled Kickball Project” from the Hollywood, CA division).

If you think your team name is better or that I forgot a good one or gave credit to the wrong team, leave me a note in the comments. I may update this list someday, but possibly not.

OFF CONSTANTLY – Dominion, VA
OFF IN PUBLIC – Star, TX
OFF IN CORNER – West Palm, FL
OFF IN THE PARK – Capital, DC

  1. The orginial Death From Above team is located in Minneapolis Minnesota. CSC Sports.

    Noted. I only looked at WAKA teams, however, and no one seems to date their team coinage, so the debate over who gets “first” rages on…

  2. Thanks for the post! Go Team Mandrake! =]

    xoxo

    Yes, indeed. Go Team Mandrake, who I hope is named after the screaming plant in Harry Potter, but even if it isn’t, it’s a good name.

    Uno Mas Studio Division California circa 2005.

    I like it!

    Cleathes and Cleavage circa 2007 Corpus Christi, TX

    scandalous!

    Smack My Pitch Up – Sawgrass, Fall Season 2007

    A bit too close to misogyny for my personal taste, but, I’m a sucker for a pun. Thumbs up!

  6. Posted by Shana on December 4, 2007 at 4:12 pm

    Awesome list. I was sad that my CA Dogtown team Ridiculously Good Looking didn’t make the list, but perhaps the new AZ team I’m starting will? We’ll be called Slow Children At Play. Yay WAKA!

    It’s not that that isn’t a bad name! I just picked another one. I do like the new name, though. I think I’m going to have to update my list again…

  7. You should look at the Little Rock, Arkansas kickball teams (www.lrkickball.com). We had 90 teams last season so we have tons of names to check out. Just look at the schedules section for team names!

    Go LRKA!

    Sorry, I’m WAKA only out of respect and laziness.

  8. How about the Cunning Stunts? FL Atlantic Winter 2008.

    Or Commotion from the Ocean (also from FL Atlantic). Love it…

    I like Commotion from the Ocean. It sounds like a surf movie.

  9. hey, great site, dude… quite inspirational. have you ever played against teams in Brooklyn?…

    Thanks! No, I only played in the mid-Hudson.

    My nephew’s old baseball team (7yo division) was sponsored by the First National Bank of Jonesboro and was named the Explosions. Their shirts, however embarrased I was to coach in it, said… and I kid you not

    FNBJ
    EXPLOSIONS!!!!!

    Wow, so many wrong ways to interpret that one!

  12. Posted by Patrick on April 24, 2008 at 3:15 pm

    I think we’ve got the dirty pun market covered!

    Our WAAR team name this year is Alcoholics Unanimous. I also like Booze on First–another team. Go Va. Beach WAAR!!

    WAAR? That sounds deadly. And also, a great team name you’ve got there!

  14. Posted by Tim on June 2, 2008 at 1:03 am

    Just finished up a new league in Western NC. Our team name Backyardigans!

    Good one!

    We played in Houston Rec SPorts this summer and everyone had a team name from this list except us… We were the Uniballers.

    Nice! Way to express your creativity!

  19. Posted by Nate Dogg on August 19, 2008 at 10:23 am

    In the Rec League of Portland, Maine, I was on a team called the Shockers. Instead of high fives we had our own variation of a high five…

    oh, dearie me….

  20. Don’t for the 2006 Fort Lauderdale Silver medalist!!!

    The Pink Tacos!!!!!

    You’re right. Don’t.

  21. Posted by Joshua Abreu on August 27, 2008 at 1:44 pm

    What do you all think of the name Multiple Scorgasms for my kickball team?

    I think you should do it. Many times.

  22. Posted by wtf is kickball? on August 28, 2008 at 5:35 pm

    guys, never heard of kickball, what is it? I assume it is an American invention, and therefore includes lots of padding, timeouts and the obligatory gloves that you wear in all sports? LOL
    p.s. don’t take my email too seriously, just hungover today. Some funny team names btw, especially liked fighting squirrels, now I would pay to see that, gloves or no gloves!

    Then why are you here? And I wish there was padding in kickball!

  23. Posted by LESLIE DOBBS on October 7, 2008 at 3:07 pm

    My coed softball teams name is FIIK and when they ask us what it stands for we say F#ck If I Know?

    I like it. But doesn’t it drive you crazy when people don’t ask what it stands for?

  24. Posted by Aaron on October 16, 2008 at 1:33 pm

    Had a team in my nashville, TN league called “Sprittney Beers”

    Were you all bald?

  25. well i play soccer and some of these
    names are crazy well our name was
    “kickin your balls”

    I don’t think I’d want to play that team!

  26. Posted by square on January 14, 2009 at 2:47 pm

    or an old perverted tx thunder classic: lick my bunt

    Both perverted AND classic.

  27. Posted by BLUEBALLS on March 1, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    These names are gay!!!! How about “BALLS DEEP” or “SHITKICKERS”! I mean those are great team names.

    You’re totally right. Normally I would think of you as the kind of person who was into same-sex sex, but as soon as I read those names that are completely devoid of nuance, puns or cultural references and obsessed with testicles and excrement, I realized that they could only have been created by a dude who’s totally into chicks.

  28. Posted by BLUEBALLS on March 1, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    “REDNECK NINJAS”. Copyright Down South HillBillys 2009.

    Actually, that’s pretty gay.

  29. I really like the name, “Going bald like patrick swayze” whatcha think…. too soon!?

    Hmmmm…. I think you just want to hold out hope that nothing bad happens to him during the season. That would be awkward.

  30. Posted by Chris on April 7, 2009 at 9:42 am

    GLORIOUS KAZAKH TEAM OF BALL KICK
    GKTBK.BLOGSPOT.COM

    approved.

  31. Been in kickball for five years now. I still love my team name ‘Vodka & Red Ball’. There are some awesome names in MUSA. If you find yourself in Wisconsin, look it up.

    Militant Kindergarten Front
    Team Ramrod
    Mad Prairie Doggz
    My Dad Can Beat Up Your Dad
    Tuesday Night AA Group
    Bad In Plaid

  32. Thanks for the inspirational names. This will be our first year in the league: The Kickbacks.

  33. Posted by Jon on May 22, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    I love this list, way to many teams from our league recycled them though. Our team was Pickled Balls. No WAKA for us, we will pay the $25/person and spend the extra 40 on booze.

  34. Posted by Angela on June 2, 2009 at 11:18 am

    I’m personally a fan of “Where My Pitches At”, but I could be a little biased since it’s been my team for the last 4 seasons 🙂

  43. Posted by Pam on October 21, 2009 at 9:41 am

    A great team name I have seen used for softball and kickball is “The Stepdads” and when someone asks why the stepdads you answer because we beat you and you hate us…Maybe it’s just a Missouri thing 🙂

  44. “2 in the Pink” is a great team name in my league. I’m thinking of switching my team to “1 in the stink” and wearing brown. We suck….

    Just out of curiosity, what did you mean about Boca having the best website in all of WAKA? I play in Boca and I was wondering if it was because of our award winning GMOT, of which I am proud to say I’m a writer 🙂

    I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, where as far as I know we do not have any kickball leagues. We do, however;play in an annual “Has Been” Kickball Tournament full of catholic school graduates that grew up playing organized and umpired kickball on asphalt with a soccer-like ball. Last year’s tournament champions received hooded sweatshirts that read “Kickin’ Balls and Takin’ Names”.
