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!
