LI-Kick sent 3 teams and 40 players/fans to Hartford Connecticut for a Tournament organized by Spark Social. The bunt-legal regional tournament attracted teams from Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The nearby tournament allowed many more players to attend and thus LI-Kick was able to draw a more competitive field of players. LI-Kick's top team went 3-0 in pool play and made their their first finals appearance in a non LI-Kick tournament. Many players chose to stay overnight and live the travel kickball experience.

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.
