Sports were a big part of Diana's life growing up in Staten Island, NY. She played basketball, soccer, and softball from a young age and earned a full scholarship to play basketball for the University of Notre Dame. Stephen grew up playing soccer...or futbol, as they call it in his hometown of Accra, Ghana. Stephen is also a black belt in shotokan karate!

This husband and wife pair are excited to provide children and families in their new hometown with the opportunity to participate in a program which is "The Way Youth Sports Should Be". Their goal is to bring smiles and fun memories to all of the kids and parents in the i9 Sports family. To start out they will focus on building out the existing programs in Middletown and Newark, but plan to expand to new areas in the near future. They will also expand the sports offering by adding lacrosse and volleyball in 2020. Stay tuned!
