Kelvin Norman is a deceased American soccer defender who played in the North American Soccer League, Major Indoor Soccer League and SISL. He was the 1989 Southwest Outdoor Soccer League MVP and coached the Colorado Comets in the SISL and USISL.

In 1978, Norman signed with the Portland Timbers of the North American Soccer League. He spent two seasons with the Timbers, largely in the reserves. In the fall of 1979, he moved to the New England Tea Men where he saw time in three games during the NASL indoor season. He then moved to the Denver Avalanche of the Major Indoor Soccer League. He played two seasons with Denver, then finished with one season with the Los Angeles Lazers. Norman then became the head coach of the amateur Colorado Comets. In 1989, the Comets entered, and won, the Southwest Outdoor Soccer League under the direction of Ed Eid. Norman spent that season as a player-assistant coach and was named the 1989 SOSL Most Valuable Player.[1]

On November 8, 2005, Norman was killed when Jason Reynolds, in a fit of rage, cut off Norman then braked suddenly when Norman was driving on E-470. Norman lost control of his vehicle which crossed into on-coming traffic, flipped and landed on a Ford Explorer, killing both Norman and the driver of the Ford. Reynolds received two life sentences for the deaths.[2] The Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club holds an annual Kelvin Norman Memorial Soccer Tournament.[3]
