LI-Kick, Glen Cove’s co-ed adult kickball league, continues to grow in popularity. Now in its second year, the league, which partners with the City of Glen Cove Department of Parks and Recreation, has 224
members with two separate leagues, one playing on Tuesday evenings, the other on Thursday evenings. Nearly 60 percent of the players are returning kickballers, some traveling from as far away as Long Beach and Centereach, despite opportunities to join leagues closer to their homes. The youngest player is 21; the oldest is 58.
The popularity of the league does not surprise its founder, Glen Cove resident Sal Farruggia.
“We’re a competitive league, with playoffs and trophies,” he said, “but we also have a recreational component.”
