LI-Kick has been working with local, county and state government offices to secure field space and begin the process of reopening. We have submitted our NY FORWARD SAFETY PLAN.
Kickball is considered a Phase 3 Sport and Long Island is anticipated to meet Phase 3 requirements on July 6th.
Anticipated league reopening timeline:
COVID-19 Specific Guidelines for Kickball:
We miss you!
When Coronavirus hit the United States, I don't think any of us could have imagined the world in which we currently find ourselves. It's weird and unusual but it's also necessary and vital to stop the spread of the virus and save lives.
As NY continues to progress through it's phased reopening, our lives will not feel normal until we are back on the field hanging with our buds. As we did in March, we will continue to follow all local, state and federal guidelines that apply to sport leagues like our own.
LI-Kick has been an active member of the Social Sports Industry Association (SSIA) which connects us with other leagues around the country. Through this partnership we have been fortunate to learn from our nationwide peers. Despite circumstance's unique challenges, players from across the country are eager to get back on the field.
With that goal in mind we are working with the state, county and local parks departments and are committed to safely returning to play.
The earliest start date for any league would be the week of July 6th (Long Island's expected entry into phase 4). Our summer leagues may look and operate a little different then the past, but we're committed to getting you back on the field safely.
Our plan is to start with outdoor sports such as Kickball, and then expand into our other sports, activities and events. Be ready, rally the troops and start training because leagues will begin as soon as we get the OK from our parks departments.
At the end of the day the success of our leagues and the LI-Kick Community is all thanks to you. So we want to hear from you, please feel free to share your thoughts, concerns and feedback.
