What We’re Thankful For

There’s no better time than Thanksgiving to recognize that i9 Sports® is grateful—not only for the chance to be involved with youth sports but for everyone who makes this community great. We’d like to take a moment to express our gratitude and simply say, “Thanks!”


We are thankful for all the parents who dedicate their time and effort to support their children in youth sports. Parents are the true MVPs, managing countless things behind the scenes to make sure their kids get to play sports and enjoy themselves to the fullest. Fortunately, with features like once-a-week practices, easy online registration, and no mandatory fundraisers, i9 Sports® makes being a sports parent as convenient as possible. If you have a child in our program, thank you for helping us put the “fun” back into youth sports!

We are thankful for the program directors that run i9 Sports® franchises in communities from coast to coast. They make it possible for kids and families to sign up for youth sports close to home, allowing for convenient locations right in their neighborhood.

We are thankful for all the dedicated coaches who keep their teams running. They may not know it, but they make a difference in the lives of young athletes every day. Each and every coach is a vital part of the i9 Sports® Experience. We couldn’t help kids build life skills and become better people without our coaches, so thank you for all you do!

We are thankful for the site managers and organizers who not only arrive early to set up the venue and stay late to put everything back in place, but make gameday the fun experience that it is. These hardworking people are the unsung heroes of youth sports that help everything run smoothly from start to finish.

We are thankful for the sports coordinators who take on many roles at the field while sharing their expertise and knowledge of the game with passion. It’s all thanks to them that the young athletes at i9 Sports® get to put their hard work to the test and demonstrate their sportsmanship, no matter the score at the end of the game.

We are thankful for all the ways youth sports benefit children. Kids get to develop athletic skills, increase their self-confidence, and learn the value of good sportsmanship when they compete against other athletes. They also make lifelong friends, stay physically active, and get to have fun. It doesn’t get any better than that and we are so grateful for the opportunity to be even just a small part of your children’s lives!

At i9 Sports®, we’re grateful to be a part of your family’s life, and we hope you’re grateful we’re a part of yours! To see for yourself what i9 Sports® has to offer, please browse our programs or contact your local i9 Sports® office today.
