I grew up playing sports; baseball, football, basketball, soccer and wall-ball with my younger brother. My mom was a single mother and we struggled financially but she made sure that my brother and I had structure, exercise and playmates during the hardest of times.

Sports have defined my life in many ways. I played rugby in college and continued on a men's team after graduation. I learned many rules for my everyday life through those sports; show up, come prepared, be a team player, help others and always give it your all and leave everything on the field.

I hope when you entrust your children to us at i9 you know that we are teaching them these life skills while playing their favorite sports. I am so thankful that I have been able to foster my love of sports and make it a career and I feel so blessed to be a part of i9.

At i9 we are a family, learning healthy competition and life lessons together, and I am so glad you are a part of it!

Why Do Parents Love i9 Sports?

"Great communication and all activities have been great and well organized."

"Love the flag football program (even with the few hiccups of the scheduling). Our coaches are great. I do think there shouldn’t be double headers in the 4-6 year old age group; it is too much for those little ones."

"I and my daughter are enjoying the experience. It has been a learning experience. I wish I had a little longer time to teach. The playing same day has good and bad because the time to coach kids without pressure of time and game considerations is hard. Girls playing with boys is also a challeng
