Flag football’s popularity continues to grow each year as more boys and girls discover the fun and excitement of the game. Parents love the game because it offers a much safer alternative to tackle football. 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. Learn More
The popularity of youth soccer in the United States has grown exponentially in recent years to make it one of the most played sports 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. As part of our industry-leading commitment to safety in youth sports, i9 Sports has a Strict No-Heading Policy in our soccer leagues. Young players do not have the developmental skills to head the ball on the forehead and instead may incorrectly head the ball on the top of the head or on the temple, causing greater risk for concussion. 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! Learn More
