One day a week with a short practice before each game. Location is convenient for me and I can keep the kids active and be done before lunch time. Seems a little pricey for a league that only occupies 2 hours a week.
I love that we only have to commit to one day a week. As 2 parents who work outside the home with opposite schedules, doing anything through the week is impossible. I9 allows us to give our child what he wants without it putting pressure on us. Thanks I9!
I have two young girls (4 and 6). The program is great for teaching them about the game and developing the skills to play the game. Coaches and parents are supportive of everyone (including other teams). It is a great introductory program for kids just starting in sport. Additionally, the cost to parents for the league as well as equipment is minimal - usually just the basics (glove for baseball, shin guards and socks for soccer, etc).
There is so much that our family loves about i9. As a busy mom, I love that it’s a one day commitment, but my most favorite part is that the focus is on learning the game and sportsmanship. We love that it’s relaxed, the “seasons” are short, and that all sports are offered all “seasons”. It provides an opportunity for children to try several sports without a long term commitment if they don’t feel like it’s the sport for them. My son has played several seasons of soccer, flag football, and coach pitch baseball. Next he wants to try basketball. We’ve really enjoyed all of our coaches, teammates, and referees. The email and text communication as well as the website makes sharing information very convenient.
The program has improved trifold compared to last year. The people working for I-9 are incredible with the kids . Teaching skills, sportmanship, and discipline. WE are in the Ocala
section. The facility is so nice .Thank you [FIRST NAME REMOVED]
I9 is the perfect opportunity for my 3 year old to get exposure to athletic programs like baseball without the pressure of being in a competitive environment. He gets a chance to learn a love and respect for the game rather than the competition. While I hope he will learn to be competitive at some point right now it's nice that he can just come and have fun while learning about baseball.
I like how age-appropriate the teams are. My 5-year-old is learning the game, so she's able to focus on that instead of whether she's winning or losing. I also like that there is a lesson each week. It helps her be a better sportsman.
