What You Can Expect

Semi Pro is a monthly tournament concept that emulates professional sports. Incoming players join via a draft to foster a fair playing field and ensure close competition. Players play as a member of their franchise for the remainder of the year. Semi Pro will consist of 7 tournaments held once a month from April to October.

Additional Info

-HOW TO JOIN SEMI PRO: Join the waitlist to be notified when the next registration period opens. You cannot join Semi Pro and be placed on a franchise of your choosing, nor is placement guaranteed. Players join as an 'Available Player' enter themselves into the next monthly supplemental draft. Available players are drafted onto a franchise and play for that franchise for the rest of the tournament schedule.

Semi Pro Constitution

The Semi Pro Constitution provides a framework for the government of Semi Pro. It is the contract between LI-Kick, Franchises and Players. It will create a level playing field, while offering stability and mobility to players. It can only be amended with the approval of 66% of franchises.

TOURNAMENTS

Each tournament will be in the vein of Friday Night lights. Expect 3-pool play games into brackets in the span of 4 hours. Playing ‘tournament rules’ of 6m/4f with a straight through order (max 2 men back-to-back). There will be a winner of each tournament. Winners will receive medals and will take home the ‘LI-Kick Chain’ until the next tournament. Franchises will carry forward their ELO.

SUPPLEMENTAL DRAFTS

There will be a supplemental draft of Available Players held 2 weeks before each monthly tournament The supplemental draft serves two purposes. One, it will allow new players to join & franchises to add officially add players to their roster for the remainder of the year. Two, it will allow franchises to use temporary players to account for absent players at the upcoming tournament.

SUPPLEMENTAL DRAFT PROCEDURE

The draft will be held roughly 2 weeks before the next tournament.

Incoming Players have until the day before the draft to declare their entry in the draft pool (must pay the joining fee)

Current Players have until the day before the draft to announce their move to a withdrawal status.

  • Players can only withdraw if they've attended the two most recent tournaments.
  • Withdrawn players are entered back into the draft pool with no guarantee of getting drafted again.

Captains have until the day before the draft to announce their drops

  • Players can only be dropped if they've no showed two consecutive tournaments.
  • Dropped players are entered back into the draft pool with no guarantee of getting drafted again.

Captains have until the day before the draft to announce their cuts.

  • Each franchise can cut one player per tournament.
  • Cut players are entered back into the draft pool with no guarantee of getting drafted again.

The draft order will be in reverse order of ELO. The 'Incoming Player Draft' will be used to to permanently draft players onto franchises. Next an 'Available player Draft' will be used to to add temporary players onto franchises on an 'as needed' basis for the next tournament. Franchises that select players in the incoming player draft will move to the bottom of the queue in the available player draft.

Franchises must come out of the draft with a legal roster of 7-8m, 5-6f and 13 total players minimum.


PLAYER STATUS DEFINITIONS

  • Available Players: These are players who are currently in the Semi Pro draft pool. Available players are eligible to be drafted onto a franchise and only available players can be used when a Franchise needs a temporary replacement player.
  • Franchise Exception: In the case an absent player was a member of the original 6 franchise group, the franchise can use any player as a replacement. The replacement player cannot be used again in any Semi Pro tournament or on any other franchises for the remainder of the year. If the replacement player wishes to continue playing, they must enter as an Available Player
  • Withdrawn Players: Sometimes a player finds themselves on a franchise they don’t vibe with. After attending two consecutive tournaments, a player may withdraw themselves from their franchise and convert their status to 'Available', in hopes of getting picked by a new franchise in the next supplemental draft.
  • Dropped Players: A captain may not want an unreliable player taking up a roster spot. If a player no-shows two consecutive tournaments, the captain may issue a drop. The player's status will be converted to 'Available' and they will enter the supplemental draft.
  • Cut: After the May tournament, each franchise can cut one player per tournament, provided that their roster size does not stay below 13 total players (min 7m & 5f). The cut must be made within 13 days of the end of the most recent tournament. Cut players will be converted to 'Available Status'.
  • Guest Player: In the case a franchise does not have enough players to enter a tournament, the players on that franchise that can play may enter the supplemental draft and be picked up as guest players for the tournament.

-Franchises are allowed to trade with an approval of 66% of franchises.

-There is a potential to add expansion franchises based on space, demand and permits.  

PRICING

There is a $70 joining fee.

·        The joining fee will be prorated down for incoming players joining after the start date.

·        Players will receive a refund if they are cut/dropped and don't want to continue as an available player.

The cost to enter a tournament is $360 per franchise.

A player that plays in all 7 tournaments on a franchise of 14 will pay $250 for the complete first year of semi-pro.

ESTABLISHING FRANCHSIES (completed 3/22/24)

  • Semi Pro will start with 6 franchises.
  • Players can join as a 'franchise group' or a 'draft pool' player.
  • To join as a 'franchise group', you’ll need to join in a group with exactly 3m and 3f.
  • 'Draft pool players' will get drafted onto a franchise.
  • If there are more 'franchise groups' than needed, all players will vote on which franchise groups get accepted. Those franchise group not accepted will be moved to the draft pool.
  • There is no guarantee of getting drafted if the quantity of draft pool players exceed the number of needed players.
  • The 6 franchise groups will each select 7 draft pool players to create 6 franchises of 13 players each (minimum 7 men and minimum 5 women). After the first tournament the franchise cap will increase to 14 players (max 8m and max 6f).
  • Players will belong to their franchise for the first year of Semi Pro.


SAL'S PROMISES

This is our attempt to emulate a pro sports season, and like the pros, the reality is that not everyone who wants to play will get the chance. But I make two promises to all players.

  1. No one who doesn't get picked will have to pay.
  2. Once we establish Semi Pro, we'll attempt to add expansion franchises so more people can play.


Why are we doing this? Semi Pro addresses many issues. As much fun as it is to always play with your friends, this typically results in all the top talent being consolidated onto lopsided 'super teams' with really just 2-3 teams having a legit chance of winning a 12 team league, and paradoxically creates a situation where the top teams express frustration there aren't more quality opponents, while the bottom teams are equally frustrated about losing to the established teams. The structure of Semi Pro ensures that talent will be evenly distributed. Semi Pro also creates a contiguous 7-month structure which address the 'come and go' nature of weekly leagues that last just 7 weeks and run multiple times a week. Finally, there is a lack of competitive tournaments in the Northeast with many national tours looking over the area. Semi Pro is creating our own eco system of competitive tournaments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nope! Most of our leagues and tournaments allow you to join as a free agent or with one or with a group of friends (while being kept together). We'll do our best to fill out your roster with players that match your age and playing preference style.

In addition to the weekly game, many of our leagues also include a series of mini-challenges. The challenges vary by league, but generally teams are awarded points for bar attendance, taking and sharing photos and playing & winning different bar games. Games may occur on the field or at the leagues sponsor bar. The team with the most points at the end of the season will be crowned the Bar Champs and earn some fun swag and bragging rights.

Athletic shoes are OK. Soccer cleats are recommended. Football cleats have also been used too.

Your signup and teammate info will be visible in your locker room. We will build out your league's webpage with schedules and teams. You'll receive 3 pre-season emails from us. The first for all LI-Kick players, the second specific to your sport and a few days before your league begins, you'll receive an email from your league director with information specific to your league. You can always emails us at info@li-kick.com with any questions.

Kickball players are a diverse group of all different ages, abilities, experience and competition level. This is an actual structured league with umpires, standings, post-game parties and a community of awesome players, but the #1 that we're serious about, is having fun.
