DUCK BUCKS are credits that can be used toward registering for seasons of SFAC sports.
How can I earn DUCK BUCKS?
You can earn DUCK BUCKS by referring friends to join you in SFAC. When a brand new player registers for the first time, they have a field asking them who referred them. If they enter your email in that field, then you (the referring player) get 10 DUCK BUCKS added to your account.
When you register for your first league ever, you also get 10 DUCK BUCKS added to your own account. Those DUCK BUCKS can be used toward your next season/sport with SFAC!
SFAC is giving away 20 DUCK BUCKS every time a new player registers as a result of a referral!
*Please note you ONLY get your referral DUCK BUCKS if the new player enters your email during the initial registration process. We are not manually updating DUCK BUCKS after the fact. Make sure new players enter the email address that is associated with your SFAC account!
I’ve already played in SFAC before, do I still get 10 DUCK BUCKS for my next sport?
Absolutely! They are already in your account ready to be used! At SFAC, we always do what is fair!
Want to captain an SFAC social sports team? We take care of our captains! The first 8 captains from each Summer league to have their entire team registered will each receive half of their registration fee back in the form of DUCK BUCKS! Use those DUCK BUCKS to play even more SFAC Sports! It literally pays to be a captain 🙂
What constitutes a “full team” for the purposes of the Captains’ Reward Program? Check out the graphic below. Please note that some of these sports can have more players on their rosters, but these are the thresholds at which we will issue the captains’ rewards. For example, flag football has 12 players per roster, but we will reward the first 8 captains that have at least 10 teammates registered.

In early Fall of 2016, the Super Fun Activities Club received an email asking us if we would like to participate in a “mud dodgeball fundraiser.” We knew two things immediately: 1) We love dodgeball and 2) We love raising money for worthy causes. After a brief back and forth to gather more information about the dodgeball tournament, SFAC decided we would enter a team in the Reviver Challenge Mud Dodgeball fundraiser held at Goodwin Farm in North
Before things got MUDDY
Smithfield, RI. On September 24, 2016 SFAC got down and dirty in the mud and walked away as the Mud Dodgeball champions. There were several things that stood out to us about this event. It had the potential to be an unbelievably cool day. The general public cheats way too much at dodgeball and sucks much of the fun out of the game. But, all things considered, it was a very fun day and we helped Reviver Challenge raise money. So that was a win.
Fast forward a year.
We received a phone call that the woman that runs Reviver Challenge is interested in partnering with SFAC in order to help make the dodgeball portion of the day more legitimate. After learning about “this woman,” we found out that Catherine Szetela Reyes is an extremely kind, charitable, ambitious and fun person. We spoke with her for an hour on the
The After Shot
phone and shared with her some ideas to improve upon the Mud Dodgeball tournament. Shortly thereafter, we met in person at The Beef Barn, a staple in the North Smithfield community for years. From that moment on, SFAC and the Reviver Challenge were working together to make the Mud Dodgeball tournament bigger, better and more fun than ever before.
After it was all said and done:
We raised more money than in any previous year.
We met some of the most generous volunteers on the face of the planet. Not only did they donate their time, they also got wet and muddy!
Every single participant got to play a minimum of 8 games of dodgeball (1/2 the teams played 3 games total in previous years)
We significantly reduced the amount of cheating from the previous year and we held players accountable for their actions.
We made memories together that will last forever, all while helping those in need.

It’s been quite some time since Quack The Duck has checked in with a blog post. But the timing just seems right today. Yesterday, a very good friend of Quack reached out and expressed interest in getting together. Not for any super important reason, but to “grab a drink” and to discuss an article that he recently read. That article was published in The Boston Globe on March 9, 2017 and was written by Billy Baker.
After reading “The biggest threat facing middle-age men isn’t smoking or obesity. It’s loneliness,” I felt like it was the right time to write another Blog entry. I will state, that after a text conversation (that’s how guys and ducks communicate in 2017) with my friend (before I read the article), he told me that the information was perfect for SFAC. It was about how people feel isolated or alone if they don’t have scheduled recurring interactions. During our conversation, he stated that it sounded like I’d already read the article. After reading the article, I understand why he felt that way.
For those of you reading this that already participate in weekly SFAC events, you’ve already figured it out. For those of you reading this that are aware of SFAC, but have never attended an event, maybe now is the time for the change in your life. And for all you readers that are brand new to the concept of SFAC, you’re welcome 😉
SFAC Dodgeball has lots of high fives
It’s not just theory. There is plenty of data that backs up what I’m about to say. As men grow older, they place their priorities on their jobs, their families, their children, their responsibilities and everything else that “needs” attention. What gets left behind, is the time dedicated to maintain friendships. And I’m not talking about with “Phil from work.” I’m talking about real friendships. People that you see on a regular basis, not because of work or an obligation, but by choice.
Everyone committed to a season of an SFAC sport makes a commitment to themselves, their teammates, and also to their opponents. You are telling your teammates “you can count on me to be there.” Not just to play the game, but to have fun with. To laugh with, and give high fives. To go out with afterwards and play board games and laugh about what happened on the court or field earlier in the night. When we go out, it’s not just with teammates, it’s also with opponents. It’s a very common occurrence at an SFAC after party, to see colors of every team shirt sitting at the same table. At SFAC, we get it. It’s not at all about winning on the court. The real winning takes place afterwards with the new friends you make, regardless of the color of their shirt.
SFAC plays Laser Tag
I’m not sure whether you’ve taken the time to read the story by Billy Baker, but one point he makes is extremely relevant to how adults interact and set priorities in their lives. There are some adults that make it a priority to spend regular time with their friends. And there are those that keep it vague and won’t commit to a schedule. I see the same exact thing with SFAC. There are some people that say “Yep! I’m in!” And they show up every week. They get exercise. They laugh and they have fun. And they’ve made many new friends (something that isn’t easy as we get older in life). And then there are the people that say “I’m interested but I can’t commit to being here every week. Can I do it sometimes?” Let me tell you, that “sometimes” means “I do enjoy it. And when I’m here, I have a blast. But I’m afraid of committing to pretty much anything and you’ll never see me again. Nobody is counting on me being here. So I’ll find a reason to not come every week until eventually I forget about it and slip into a terrible cycle of doing only the things I need to do in life. But never doing things for myself. Never taking the initiative to make and maintain friendships in adult life.”
HERE’S A SOLUTION
SFAC currently offers sports leagues 5 days a week. SFAC offers social events on a regular basis. Are you willing to commit to developing and maintaining meaningful friendships in your adult life? Take that first step and get involved today. Show a commitment to yourself!
After Quack opened his eyes, way too early yet again, he lay in bed and reflected on his day yesterday. He also reflected back upon the last week, last month and last year. This crazy thing called SFAC has been an absolutely insane ride. A ride that some movie scripts would be jealous of. It’s at this time, that Quack would like to share with you some of the things he’s thankful for.
While starting a business from a pretty wild idea in your head can be viewed by many as “crazy,” Quack has never wavered on his beliefs. Waking up every morning with a burning desire to make the world a better, more fun and enjoyable place is a great way to live. Many people never dare to step outside their comfort zone. Some people dare to dream. Dare to do something considered “crazy” by others. Everyone should find their true passion in life. Not only find it, but pursue it. We only get once chance at this short silly dance called “life.” Why not spend as much time as possible doing what you truly enjoy? Quack is thankful for feeling that desire each and every day.
Quack spent the day yesterday on two different football fields and then the rest of the day with his family. Both football games were filled with genuine people getting together to share positive experiences with one another. There was a ton of laughter and just as much high-fiving of “opponents.” Being a part of both games, surrounded by good people was a morning to be thankful for.
After a quick shower, he was off to be with his family. Everyone shared food, games, laughter and love. QTD is extremely thankful to have a family that is real and genuine. A family that understands what is important to them. He’s also extremely thankful to have their support as he chases his dreams in life. If you can play games and make new friends as an adult, what is better than that? Over the last 15 months, Quack has met more new friends than he ever dreamed possible. There are so many people out there, just looking for ways to have more fun in their lives. So many great, kind hearted people that just like to have fun and help others. Quack is extremely thankful to have so many new friends in his life.
Quack is also incredibly thankful that he has had the foresight to document everything from the past year. Thankful to have mental clarity and patience. Although the past year has tested his patience, he kept calm and kept true to his values and ethics. He’s extremely thankful that as the story of the last year is told, that all the hard work, effort, and genuine nature of his ideas are all paying off. In the end of every feel good movie script, in the end of every well-written novel, the good guys always win. And for that, Quack is thankful.

The Super Fun Activities Club’s first official event!!!
Quack the Duck, SFAC’s Activities Coordinator, got together a group of his friends for a day of fun. When planning the event, Quack decided to have everyone arrive 3 and a half hours early to play Cornhole, Kan Jam, Ladder Golf and enjoy beverages before the start time. Who tailgates an athletic event that they are about to participate in? SFAC, that’s who! Why? Because it’s Fun. Super Fun.
There were 8 Super Fun members that participated in the WIPEOUT Run with obstacles like the Giant Balls, The Sweeper, and Happy Endings. After getting set up and starting the party with a Little Hug Chug, Quack started talking to runners as they went by the tailgate. Many of the runners stopped to sign up for SFAC’s mailing list and also threw a few Cornhole bean bags. Quack also discovered that the runners hadn’t gone through any obstacles but had run just over a mile at that point. Armed with this information, Quack took a poll and SFAC decided to skip the first mile of the 5K, jump the rope and get started from there. That’s just how SFAC rolls. At our start time, we jumped the rope and off we went. We jogged about 75 yards to the first obstacle. Well played SFAC. Well played.
Nick and Mike having FUN
After tackling the first obstacle with a full head of steam, SFAC jogged to the second obstacle, the Giant Red Balls. Quack deemed the Giant Red Balls to be physically impossible for a human to successfully complete. Fortunately for him, he’s a duck. And he can fly. And talk. Mike Giles proved Quack wrong as he was the only SFAC member to successfully make it across the Giant Red Balls.
That was the end of the running for SFAC. From that point on, we walked to most of the obstacles and even stopped back at the tailgate for a “pick me up” as SFAC All-Star Will put it. SFAC successfully made it through the rest of the WIPEOUT obstacles without any injuries. #SUCCESS
After completing the course, SFAC got back to their vehicles, unpacked all the games and kept the party going. Partying until after the sun went down, Quack deemed SFAC’s first official event a Super Fun Success.
Thank you to everyone that made WIPEOUT an awesome first event!
