i9 Sports offers youth basketball leagues across the country for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 14. Youth basketball is 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 while teaching the values of teamwork. We provide age-appropriate instruction with a focus on fun and healthy competition. i9 Sports provides a youth sports experience unlike any other by teaching the lessons of good sportsmanship on and off the court.
“Basketball helps children work on their balance, coordination and agility,” said i9 Sports President and CEO Brian Sanders. “Our programs offer the ability for your children to benefit physically but also mentally by learning the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.”
i9 Sports coaches sign a “Coaches Pledge” to teach their players teamwork, fair play and good sportsmanship. Each week, a coach will choose a new sportsmanship value to focus on and award a medal to the child on the team who best illustrates that week's value. Sports are about exercising but i9 Sports also ensures that children gain more than the physical aspect of the game through our programs.
For most kids, the ideal age to start basketball is between the ages of 4-5 and many of the skills will last a lifetime. All skill levels are welcome – we never have tryouts or drafts. Every child plays in every game.
