Q: What's the difference between an instructional program vs. league?
The focus of an instructional program is to teach children the age-specific fundamentals of the sport in a game-like setting. i9 Sports will supply a coach to lead activities and provide individual coaching to the players. The program is split into two distinct phases (practice and game play). During the game, the daily practice topic will be emphasized.
A league is a program in which multiple teams compete with each other throughout the season. Each team is led by a volunteer coach.
Q: What if my child is a beginner to organized sports or it's their first time playing a particular sport?
Due to the core values that i9 Sports holds our program is great for children of all skill levels and experience! It is very common that all teams have a mix of brand new and returning players. Rest assured, every player gets to play every game - all season long.
Q: How long will the program run?
Our programs vary in length depending on the season and type of program. Click on Find A Program to find out all the details.
Q: How long are the practices and games?
Practices, game lengths, and times will vary by age group and sport. All programs and times may vary, but here’s a general guideline:
Q: Are all of your programs co-ed?
All of the sports that we offer are co-ed, unless noted. Click on Find A Program to find the details of the program.
Q: How do I obtain the multi-child discount online? Is there a discount for more than one child in my family to participate in a season?
Yes! The multi-child discount is automatically applied when you register the additional child(ren) for the same season (clinics excluded). You do not need any promo code. Discount amounts vary by location.
Q: What if there’s a Waiting List for a program?
If a program displays “Join Waiting List”, that means we are currently sold out for the age group you’re interested in registering for, but a spot may open up. Because the waiting list is first come, first serve, we highly recommend that you complete the Waiting List registration. There is no obligation and you will not pay for the registration at that time. If a spot opens up, you will be contacted and full payment will be expected to secure your spot.
Q: What paperwork must I complete in order for my child to participate in your program?
If you’ve registered by phone, you’ll need to click on Complete Waivers to complete the registration. Otherwise, if you’ve completed a registration online, then you’re all set!

You’ll need to click on My Schedule and click the red Photo Day link on the schedule for more info. Please keep in mind that Photo Day info may not be displayed until the information is available.
Q: How is your Flag Football program different from tackle football?
In our Flag Football program there is no contact. We offer this program as a way to prevent injuries and also provide a safe program for all of our players. A flag belt is worn by every player and once a player’s flag has been pulled the play is stopped. The pulling of flags replaces tackling.
Q: How can I find the rules of the game?
Click on Rule Books (you can also find this link in the Coaches section of the website).
Q: How can I become a volunteer coach?
The first step to becoming a coach is to complete the Volunteer Application.
Once you’ve completed the Volunteer Application, view our brief coaching video and take the online exam.
Thereafter, please be patient as the Local Program Director may not contact you until 1-2 weeks prior to the start of the season with information on attending the Coaches Meeting.
Q: What is the time commitment of a volunteer coach?
Because i9 Sports practices and plays games on the same day, your time commitment is only 1 day per week! If you’re already planning on coming to your child’s game each week we’ve made it easy for you to become a coach and make great memories with your child!
Q: What kind of coaching materials do you provide?
We’ve made it real easy for you to be a successful coach! Coaching Guides, Rule Books, as well as Playcards & Practice Drills that are super easy for children of all ages to follow can be found in the Coaches section of the website. Of course, if you have any questions on game day, see the Site Manager (at the red canopy) or you can contact your Local Program Director.
Q: I’m trying to login to my account, but can’t remember my password!
Click on Forgot Your Password and the information will be emailed to you automatically.
Q: I am a Coach, but when I attempt to view Coaches information on the website, I get a message that say’s “You must be a coach to view this information.”
There may be a few reasons why this is happening. Either (a) you are logged in using an email address that is different from the one you used as a coach. If that’s the case, simply logout – and sign in again with the correct email address; (b) you are not a coach of a current team. Your coaching status is only in effect for the duration of the season; or (c) you are a coach of a team in an upcoming season, but the schedule/team assignments are not complete yet. Please try again 1 week prior to the season start date.
Q: I registered my child for an upcoming program, but the website is displaying “You currently have no future registrations associated with this email address.”
The reason why this is happening is that the email address you used to login is not the same email address associated with the registration. Simply, logout – and sign in again with the correct email address.
