The atmosphere and culture of the league is really uplifting for the kids and all the coaches and staff are caring, knowledgeable, and professional. We love I9 and I’d recommend joining this league to any and all of my friends and family.
The coaches interact well with all the kids. It is a great and smooth program for beginner players to learn the game and sportsmanship. Each kid gets a fair amount of playing time together as well. My kids love playing. They have played flag football and now basketball and they just love it so much.
My son is 6 and this is his 4th soccer season. I9 has provided a perfect place for learning, coaching, fun, and competition for my son to allow for growth, while still enjoying soccer and making friends!
I love that practice takes place before the games so it is only a 1 day commitment. At young ages I think this is best.
I do feel that 3 years old is a little too young to start the kids in sports. I am currently coaching the 3 year olds and it actually seems more stressful for them than it is worth. They have fun at practice but a lot of them seem very overwhelmed with the game.
