See what parents in our Chicago kids sports leagues say about i9 Sports:

This set up works perfectly for working parents. Unfortunately, I can’t get my child to a “Tuesday at 4pm” practice. But for the boys to practice and play in the same day? Perfect! We are in our 4th year in i9 Sports and grateful to have had our boys participate.  
–Beth L. from Chicago, IL

I like the good sportsmanship values. It is well organized. People are friendly and kids aren’t judged for their ability level in sports.  
–Joyce Y. from Chicago, IL

Coaches are great ! Very encouraging ! Love the fact that practices and games are the same day!
–Wendy P. from Elburn, IL

Because so many parents take sports so seriously, the efforts i9 Sports makes to keep the emphasis on fun for the kids (while maintaining healthy competition) sets it apart.
