Maker Story

A Spin On Soccer

Semi-pro soccer player Eli Dent developed Kickit to help introduce more people to his favorite sport. His goal was to create a soccer game that people could play wherever they are, even indoors. He started thinking about the portability of hacky sack, but after researching he realized the perceived difficulty level could be a barrier. Looking for something easier, he learned about a game that’s been played in Asia for centuries called Jianzi. In Jianzi, players need to keep a featherball in the air using anything but their arms and hands—very similar to soccer. Kickit kicks up that competition and fulfills Eli’s dreams to develop a fun twist on his favorite sport.
