I grew up intimidated to play sports because I got a late start due to living overseas. One day, I put my reservations aside and went out for the High School Baseball team as a junior. I ended up making the team and once I did, I always regretted not getting involved sooner. I only got 2 years out of a sport I loved because I was afraid I wouldn't get the opportunity to play.

When I started my kids in i9 Sports, I felt a bond to this program, because I knew kids like me had a home. A place where every child, regardless of experience or skill level, will get the opportunity to play the sport they choose. Where you learn about sportsmanship and that “it’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game” isn’t just a saying, but part of the i9 Sports vision. I knew this was more than a potential career, it was a calling.

My #1 goal is that your child will learn the sport, enjoy healthy competition and have a whole lot of FUN. i9 Sports really is how youth sports should be!
