The New i9 Sports® Athlete Development Program

Today’s youth have less opportunities for physical activity in schools or even after school. Because of this, it is more important for youth sports leaders to step in. At i9 Sports®, we want to make it possible for kids to develop the fundamental movement skills needed to not only excel in sports, but to live a healthy, active life. It’s why we developed our new Athlete Development program.

The i9 Sports® Athlete Development Program is designed to enhance development of physical literacy and fundamental movements through drills that are “off the ball”. These fun activities build athlete confidence and teach skills that make playing sports more enjoyable. More importantly, the program encourages kids to stay active for life. Our Athlete Development program boasts small group sizes too. Plus, it comes with all the benefits you expect from i9 Sports®: fun, safety, and emphasis on good sportsmanship. 

If your child is not quite ready for game play or simply wants to focus on building athletic skills and agility, this is a great option. If you are looking for a program with small groups and minimal equipment sharing, this is it!

Here is what you can expect when participating in the i9 Sports® Athlete Development Program:
  • Players will rotate through stations focused on developing fundamental movements, strength, and coordination.
  • This new 5-7 week program is all “off the ball” so there is minimal equipment sharing.
  • Small group sizes allow for more instruction leading to greater athletic confidence.
  • Kids develop physical literacy and the desire to stay active for life! Plus, it’s FUN!
  • Sportsmanship lessons taught each week.

Through this program, we know that your child will not only build confidence, but they will develop skills to help them excel in whatever they choose to do. Enter your zip code under the programs tab above to choose the Athlete Development program dates and location that work best for you.
