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

Why Do Parents Love i9 Sports?

"Hands on training"

"I love that practice and game are all in one day. I also love that the players are actually learning the game, not worrying about winning. The coaches are awesome and so are the families. "

"Its encouraging instead of competitive. The kids are naturally competitive as it is so the positive environment by your coaches and staff are what makes it a great experience. Its not a "We have to win!" mentality. It is a "Lets learn and have fun" mentality."

"Affordable and responsible "

"I like that it is one day a week vs other programs. I have been disappointed because my son has been shorted on time of games. Refs also can be exhausting with flag football of younger players it is not NFL. There is more blowing the whistle and interruption than the kids getting to play the gam
