i9 Sports offers youth sports leagues, camps, and clinics for boys and girls between the ages of 3-17 in today’s most popular kids team sports. While sport offerings vary based on the i9 Sports location, we offer flag football, soccer, basketball, baseball, and cheerleading in hundreds of communities each week.
A Quick Overview of Our Core Youth Team Sports:
Offering all the fun of tackle football without the same risk of injury, flag football is rapidly becoming the youth sport of choice among parents who question whether kids should play tackle football. Patterned after regular football, teams run or pass the ball down field in order to score a touchdown. The primary difference in flag football is that it is a “no contact” game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players try to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. It’s the perfect game for boys or girls ages 4 and up. If your child wants to play football, why risk the injuries in tackle? Make it flag football instead!
In a recent study by the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association (SGMA), soccer was cited as the second most popular sport for boys and girls under the age of 13. Kids in our soccer programs learn the fundamentals of the game, how to dribble the ball with their feet, good defense and offense, and the value of teamwork, in a safe, “no contact” sport.
While soccer is a great fit for all ages, it’s also a wonderful “starter” sport for kids as young as 3 years old to introduce him/her to team play!
Nationally, basketball is one of the most popular team sports for girls and boys. It’s a great sport to expand your child’s coordination and self-esteem. i9 Sports basketball programs are designed to help kids learn the basics of dribbling, passing, and shooting the ball, all while learning what it means to be part of a team.
For most kids, the ideal age to start basketball is between the ages of 4-5. The skills last a lifetime!
In 2012, i9 Sports launched T-ball nationally to the roaring applause of parents with kids ages 3-6. Our baseball program teaches kids the basic fundamentals of how to catch, throw, hit, run, and be “baseball ready” in a fun, safe, real-game setting. A limited number of our locations offer baseball programs for kids over age 6.
