We like the way that it is not competitive but aimed at making it fun for the children. We also appreciate being able to move a child from one session to another once we understood which would be the best fit.
I like that you offer Sunday programs (since Saturdays are harder for us due to a conflict), I like that you have various locations though we've only been to Robert Frost, I like that practice and game are together in one session. I like the lead coach for the Sunday basketball at Robert Frost for the 7-9 kids (other coaches too but the lead coach does the most in terms of teaching kids the rules and how to play).
It’s not overly priced for the amount of classes offered. i9 also gives opportunity for the kids that are not yet in school to still participate in team sports and learn foundation of teamwork, problem solving skills, following directions, camaraderie, and more.
I like that there’s an emphasis on skilled development and smaller games, improve the skills versus league competition. It really improves the team spirit and allows the kids to develop without feeling like they aren’t meeting a certain standard.
I am extremely grateful to Coach Allah and Coach Ali for creating an enjoyable learning experience for my son Avery for his first time playing soccer. Their informative teaching approach, hands-on guidance, and patience have been invaluable. I gave a rating of 9 out of 10 because I would have preferred if there were more days included. In addition to that, I will highly recommend I9 to individuals who are seeking a healthy, friendly, enriching environment for their children to participate in.
We enrolled in the lower level soccer program a couple years ago and are back again this year for enrollment in the next level up (8-10 yo). While the group isn’t large, the coaches are amazing with the kids - a perfect opportunity for them to learn basic or enhance their skills in a low stress environment. As a parent of a kiddo who isn’t super competitive, the i9 program has been a great option to still introduce them to sports, new skills, and new friends.
