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.
