Since LI-Kick rolled out its first kickball pitch in the Spring of 2013, we've had a Big Hairy Audacious Goal of transforming the lives of adults on Long Island through social sports.
Every 10,000 signups, we pause to celebrate our progress and recognize a player new to our leagues that we feel best embody the spirit of LI-Kick. These players recieve a custom jersey and are etched into the LI-Kick history books.
It took six years to reach our first 10K milestone, but we are proud to see that we are picking up the pace and are now averaging over 10,000 players every year and are expecting to announce Player 50K in the Summer of 2024.
