We Are What Makes LI Kick

We pride ourselves on offering strong recreational and competitive platforms for players to strengthen friendships & meet new people, all while playing a really fun game.







One Mission

Connecting People Through Play

A Message from Our Founder

I started LI-Kick in April of 2013 after graduating college and moving back to Long Island. I was seeking more than the 9-5 grind and I found myself missing the friendships, connections, revelry and nightlife that came so easy in college but was now difficult to find.

What started as an 8-team Kickball league has grown into Long Island’s premier provider of Adult Social Sports. I have met a ton of people, made a lot of friends and have more fun now than I ever had at any college party.

I’m on a mission to positively transform the social lives of those living on Long Island and am doing everything I can possibly do to make that happen. Join us next season! It may change your life and it will definitely make my mom proud.
