Offering youth sports programs in Tampa, Brooksville, Spring Hill, Hernando County

Connor Thompson - Program Director

My drive is to make sure all children have a fun youth sports experience. My love of organizational structure from The Marine Corps, and desire to make a difference in people's lives lead me to i9 sports. As a kid, I made sure to be in all the contact sports I could get into. I played both football and LAX, but I found that my talents were best served in rugby where I ended up being captain of my high school team. One thing I have found from my time in The Corps and in my life, in general, is that the values that make you successful in sports also make you successful in life. When I saw that i9 Sports focused on good core values while still ensuring children had a fun experience I knew that I had to be a part of the organization. It is a true blessing to work with children every day knowing that they are developing the tools to be outstanding adults. I am honored to be a part of i9.
