Welcome to the 2019 Winter Season of i9 Sports Basketball!
We are thrilled to announce that i9 Sports offers an ALL-GIRLS basketball league! The winter league is open to girls (1st Grade-8th Grade). If you have a daughter who prefers to play in our co-ed basketball league, they still have that option available.
You will find i9 Sports is an exciting alternative to other leagues, because we offer features you value most:
- Unsurpassed organization and communication
- Emphasis on fun that places the kids' needs first
- Focus on basic skills, sportsmanship, team play and fairness
- Convenience (practices and games on the same day)
- Inclusiveness (balanced playing time for every player, every game)
- Commitment to safety (mandatory certified background checks on all coaches)
League Format: Play is 5 on 5. Teams consist of 8-10 players and are organized into divisions based on the child's grade level for the current school year. Divisions are defined as Pee Wee (1st-2nd), Junior (3rd-5th) and Senior (6th-8th). However, the number of registrations in each grade level may require divisions to be modified prior to the start of the season. Special requests to play with a friend, sibling or a specific coach will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis, but are not guaranteed.
Practice: We encourage no more than one (1) practice per week, and for that practice to be held 30 minutes prior to the game, thus making it a once per week commitment for kids, parents, and coaches.
Equipment: Each player will receive an official i9 Sports reversible jersey that your kids get to keep. Players may wear shorts or sweats of any type, as long as they do not have pockets or belt loops for safety reasons. You can purchase official i9 Sports reversible shorts through the i9 Sports online merchandise store by clicking on the "Online Store" link under "My Account." Appropriate athletic footwear must be worn for indoor use.
Awards: Each player will receive one i9 sportsmanship medal for demonstrating a weekly sportsmanship value during the season. All players will receive an i9 participation trophy or medal at the conclusion to the season. Special recognition certificates will be awarded to the Most Valuable Player, Most Improved Player and Most Sportsmanship-like Player for each team. All players on teams that win their division will receive a championship trophy.
Coaches & Referees: All coaches, usually a volunteer parent of a child playing on the team, will receive mandatory certified background checks. Please consider volunteering! Coaches will find the experience personally rewarding. All referees are trained to ensure the highest level of professionalism during all games.
Interactive Website: You can easily find programs near you, access detailed schedules, communicate with your coach, view standings and team/player statistics, review game rules, see your child's accomplishments and get the latest league news at our state-of-the-art website. The website is updated on a regular basis so please check the site often.

View your child's schedule, know your jersey color for the day, easily locate and dial the weather hotline for the latest updates and find location info to get turn by turn directions to the games. You can even view league standings and game scores!
