Noah Dhaliwal – Co-Founder

He has been active in volunteer work all his life, helping out with political campaigns when he was young by holding signs, serving food to participants at cancer walks, to being a staff member at several different ProCamps events. He currently works with the FYE office at Boston College with programs including Orientation and Compass Mentoring. The idea to create an event like Kick It, came from a long-lasting desire to give back to his community and inspiration from the story of his co-founder Sam Gerry.

A native to Woburn, Emily has been with Kick It since its first tournament in 2019. Since then, she has assumed responsibility for tournament marketing and organization.

When she is not creating food advertisements, Emily is on the volleyball court coaching athletes statewide on how to establish a strong mental foundation within themselves.
