LI-Kick played in the biggest tournament of the year. 46 teams and 1,000 players in attendance. We competed in the middle tier and largest division called 'Open'. On the field we played 4 games and achieved our goal of qualifying for playoffs- something we didn’t do last year. We also had the full Vegas experience partying with 1,000+ kickball players from around the country at night clubs, pool parties, flip cup tournaments and more

LI-Kick finishes 12 of 24 teams
Our pre-ranking was 14th of 24 teams and in a pool with the 2nd, 11th, and 23rd ranked teams.
The #2 seed beat us 7-0. This was a rematch from last year when they beat us real bad. They take players from all across the country so it really isn’t a fair fight. Still, we played with pride.
We beat the #11 seed 9-2. Getting hits wasn’t so hard as their defense was spotty. Girls did a great job getting on to keep the machine rolling. This was a SoCal team.
We were expecting an easy game against the 23rd seed but they were way better than their ranking suggested. This was the ‘bubble’ game and we needed a good result to qualify for playoffs (top 16). We went down 0-2 but then Kyle beat the left fielder on a HR down the line and we scored the lead off runner the next inning. Deone got us out of a big jam in the last inning when he struck out the batter with the bases loaded. We tied this team 2-2, and earned a playoff spot. They were from Texas
We finished 12th of 24 teams and played the 5th seed in playoffs, a team from Houston. They didn’t have much trouble keeping our runners off the bases and put a lot of pressure on our defense. They went up 6-0. We made it respectable by scoring a run on a triple in the 4th inning, ultimately losing 6-1.
While we love pets, most of the venues have pet policies that we must enforce and we ask our players to follow these rules. Venues that are pet friendly will be marked.
We know that part of the fun is having a couple drinks with your friends while hanging out on the sidelines. That said, most of the venues we play at have strict rules regarding the consumption of beer and alcohol that we must enforce and we ask our players to follow these rules. When possible LI-Kick secures the proper permits to allow players to bring their own booze, in these cases those leagues and tournaments will indicate that this is allowed.
We thank you for supporting our bar sponsors and facilities by not attempting to sneak in outside drinks.
