The practice before games is very convenient. It doesn’t require time during the week for practice.

i9 Sports is a well run, structured program. The coaches have been friendly and knowledgeable, along with the referees. I find they have all been very good with children. My daughter has been building skills each season. She has played three seasons so far and loves it!!
