The two day competition is a benefit for Jersey City's Learning Community Charter School. Saturday's Qualifiers start at 12:30 with Kickin it Old School playing newcomers, The Neutronic Ninjas. The Ninjas and some of the other teams are still looking to recruit extra players, there's a kickball draft for nomads at 11:30 and then open practice until the first game. Anyyways, just show up and we'll see what we can do, careers in score keeping, refereeing and field engineering await you. On Sunday, the six top teams will compete for Gold (aka a $100 gift certificate from the White Star,) Tournament MVP's will get gift certificates from the Jersey City Tattoo Company , and a free haircut from Balance Hair Salon. with Nine Lives skate shop's putting up I Love JC merch for the most spirited players/cheerleaders.

Sunday volleyball is still on, but I won't be fixing any kickball games to make it there though. After we crown the kickball champs, it's time to wind down or wind up with DJ Bill McCamie at Lucky Sevens Industry Night.
