Hayley Wadsworth - Program Director

My passion for working with youth sports is fueled by my experiences participating in and coaching young athletes. Growing up in Ohio I played multiple sports including soccer, softball, and gymnastics. The years I spent as a young athlete helped me develop life skills that I can call upon every day. Working with I9 Sports allows me to teach these skills to the young participants so that they may enjoy playing the sports they desire and help shape them into an all-around amazing individual.

I am a graduate from the Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education Degree with a Sports Industry focus. While attending Ohio State University I worked as a Facility Manager at the Adventure Recreation Center on the campus. I relocated to Florida to continue my passion of working with youth sports as an Assistant Program Director for I9 Sports. I am excited about the opportunity to help children experience the joys of sports participation and look forward to the challenge
