Our instructional format is a great way to learn the fundamentals of a sport. Kids will participate in a practice session focusing on fundamentals, rules, skill development run by an i9 Sports coach. We will then divide the kids up into teams and they will play a game. Coaches will continue to teach during these games. We have no weekly practices and the only practice to be held prior to the game at the venue, thus making it a 1 day commitment.
|AGE||TOTAL FIELD TIME||FORMAT|
|3 - 4||60 minutes||Instructional|
|5 - 7||75 minutes||Instructional|
Equipment: The league provides each player with an official i9 Sports reversible jersey that the kids get to keep (the kids love the reversible jersey). Players may wear shorts of any type. Appropriate footwear includes sneaker or cleats (no metal spikes.) Each child will need their own glove - all other equipment will all be provided for use!
Coaches & Referees: Parent Coaches are expected in our programs and necessary in order to form teams. Coaching at i9 Sports is fun, rewarding, and easy! We provide practice plams, rule books, and other helpful resources. Volunteering to coach is a great opportunity to build a strong bond with your child in addition to helping other children have a great sports experience. If you can give a high five, you can coach! Be sure to volunteer during the registration process and more information will be provided before the start of the season. All i9 Sports Coaches are certified and will go through a background check.
Awards: Each week one child from each team will be awarded an i9 Sports Sportsmanship Medal for demonstrating the value for that week. All children will receive an i9 Sports Participation Trophy at the end of the season.
Buddy Requests: At i9 Sports we do our very best to accommodate buddy request. Sports are more fun when you play with friends, so be sure to tell some buddies once you register!
Registration/Refund Policy: After the final deadline, any remaining available positions will be filled on a first come, first served basis. If you registered after the deadline, you may still make buddy or coach requests but they are no longer guaranteed. There will be NO REFUNDS after the deadline. If for any reason your child can no longer participate, we can transfer your child’s registration to another sport or season.
Weather Cancellations: There is one weather make-up date built into the schedule. If we lose a weekend of games to weather, we will make them up on this date. Any additional dates lost may or may not be made up. We will do the best we can, but we cannot control the weather. Because of all of the costs built into running the leagues, we cannot provide refunds for dates missed. We will do all we can to make all the games happen.

"The kids have fun. And everybody works together "
Mel B. (June 2018)
"I love the family friendliness...1 hour on Saturdays is very doable! I also like the focus on sportsmanship and learning how to play, rather than competitiveness."

"Very friendly and hands on! "

"I love the smaller teams and because my child is only 3, I like the fun friendly atmosphere and not a cut throat competitive atmosphere from the parents. Everyone including the kids is super awesome!"
