Important Program Details
i9 Sports Basketball Presented by: 4 The Kids Basketball Academy
- Unsurpassed organization and communication - Emphasis on fun that places the kids' needs first - Focus on basic skills, sportsmanship, and team play - Convenience (lower time commitment) - Inclusiveness (everyone plays, every game) - No additional fees or fundraisers - Commitment to safety
Instructional Format: Kids will be placed into coed groups based on age. During each Saturday (Spring/Summer) or Sunday (Fall/Winter) depending on season, each group will practice and receive instruction from an experienced basketball coach and i9 Staff member as well, then be split into teams to play a game. Teams may change on a week to week basis as coaches strive to split their groups up into evenly matched sides for the benefit of the kids. The focus will be on having fun, building confidence, developing basketball skills and playing games once a week. A game clock and scoreboard will be used to increase player understanding, but not for team ranking.
Schedule & Location: Start time will vary based on season and age group. Each session will feature approx 30 minutes of drills/instruction followed by approx 40 minutes of game play = 70 minutes per Saturday or Sunday based on Season at Bishop Snyder High School. All games will be played inside unless we have issues with the gym that could convert us to play outside on the Bishop Snyder outdoor courts.
Practices:Consist of drills teaching the fundamentals of basketball (Dribbling, Passing, Layups, etc.) in a fun environment. Practices and games are held on the same day, once per week, at Bishop Snyder High School. There will be no weeknight practices or games!
Instructors, Awards, & Website: All instructors will be screened and certified! All kids will receive an i9 Sports Participation Award at the end of the program. You can register to play and get the latest league news here on our website 24/7!
Equipment: The league provides each player with an official i9 Sports Basketball reversible jersey. Players may wear athletic shorts of any type (black shorts are recommended) as long as they do not have pockets or belt loops.
Coaches: Coaches are always needed. Coaches are asked to help the staff during the practice session keep order and kids focused. During game time you are asked to help rotate the kids in during the game. Please be sure that you can commit to all 7 weeks.
All refunds will require a $25 processing and restocking fee.
