Roc Le Fort 1964-2014

With great sadness, long time Kickers alumni and friend Roc LeFort passed away suddenly September 7th 2014 in a motorbike accident. Roc was a good man and a great friend to many, at the club you could always find him involved in some intense foosball matches that went on longer than his well known poker tournaments. Or behind the bar lending a hand, and at a Saturday night social he would always be one of the last guys standing. On the field he played with his heart and for his team mates. A true club man. His family will be holding a celebration of life this Monday the 15th at 11 Mitchell road in Courtenay 1:30pm, for anyone wishing to attend. The Kickers will be putting on an informal social Saturday September 20th in his honor (exact details to follow) for those wishing to come. Greg Merchant will be organizing a foosball tourney and Roc’s jersey will be retired and hung up in the club. RIP Roc Le Fort, you will surely be missed by...

Kickers Narrowly Miss NVIRU Championship

Kickers Narrowly Miss NVIRU Championship

Written by Mike Magee, Photos by Michelle Hamilton May 1, 2013, (ISN) - The road to the Provincial Championship for the Comox Valley Kickers runs through Cumberland this Saturday as they get set to host a semi-final of the Division 3 Tier 2 BC Championship in Village Park at 1pm. The Kickers qualified for the Provincial Championship after securing a spot in the NVIRU Championship game last fall. The top seeds from the fall and then the spring competition have a chance to play first for the Island Championship in the revamped Island 3rd division. After the Island Championship is decided both teams are off to the BC Championships as a top seed in both Tier A and B. With the NVIRU trophy back on site this last Sunday the #1 ranked team in the spring of 2013 the Velox Valhallians (7-1) took to the field to defend the trophy against the #1 ranked team from the Fall 2012 competition, the Comox Valley Kickers (6-0). These teams have met numerous times in the Championship game over the last several years with mighty Valhallians from Victoria always managing to come out on top in very tight competitive games. As the Kickers managed to put a respectable effort in the finals time after time, the depth of the Valhallians bench seems to be the difference maker in the later stages of the encounters. Since winning their first NVIRU trophy in the spring of 2010, Velox has claimed it 6 times in the last 4 years. Ideal field and weather conditions on Herd Rd. as the kick off sailed through the air...
