Chris Novak - Program Director

i9 Sports is a year-round, youth sports program with multiple leagues across Oakland and Macomb County. We pride ourselves on promoting a FUN, structured, and encouraging environment for kids ages 3-14. Our coaches are background checked and trained to provide progressive instruction plans designed by the pros. We currently offer soccer, t-ball, coach pitch, flag football, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, and cheer!

Years ago current owner, Chris Novak, took a leap of faith when he quit his job as a CPA and opened his first i9 Sports program in Rochester, MI. With the help and support of his wife, Jackie, and three children, he has successfully expanded to Royal Oak, West Bloomfield, Lake Orion, Clarkston, Shelby Twp., Utica, and Chesterfield. Chris's right-hand man and brother, John Novak, his father, Mike Novak, brother, Tom Novak, and sister-in-law, Stacie Novak, have been instrumental in growing the franchise and creating a positive experience for all involved.
