For the TEENick line-up in 2006, Nickelodeon premiered a new series from Brookwell McNamara Entertainment called Just for Kicks (also originally titled Head to Toe and then The Power Strikers), centered around a group of girls in a soccer team in New York City who all share the same passion for the sport. Although at least two episodes of the show were apparently on iTunes at some point, it quickly became one of the most short-lived and rare Nickelodeon TV shows ever (even more so than KaBlam!), as barely any trace was left of the show until nearly a decade after its cancellation.
Just for Kicks starred Francesca Catalano as Alexa D'Amico, a stereotypical popular high school girl, Mallory Low as Winifred "Freddie" Costello, a tough girl who is not good friends with Alexa because she and her friends would snob her at school, Katija Pevec as Lauren Zelmer, a shy, timid, serious good ahtlete, Jessica Williams as Vida Atwood, a sporty, serious athletic girl like Lauren and Jerad Anderson as Chris D'Amico, Alexa's older brother, and was most notably co-executive produced by Whoopi Goldberg.
The series ran for 13 episodes from April 9th, 2006 and was cancelled on September 16, 2007.
Prior to 2016, there were only three publicly available clips of the show online. The first was a trailer of various moments from the show, which was previously available for viewing on Viacom's website until some unknown time. The second clip was an incomplete promo for a new episode which played during the credits of a Fairly OddParents episode. It was uploaded on May 8th, 2014 by CRTN Channel. The third clip was a two-minute excerpt of an episode which was uploaded to Dailymotion by Craig Robert Young (the actor who portrays Coach Leslie Moore in the show) on September 14, 2011.
Aside from these brief clips, no other footage of the show was available until May 2nd, 2016, when the entire series was uploaded by Youtuber "theSuperMetroid02" in two parts.
