I really like that there aren't 3-4 practices a week. Due to a full-time job, it's really hard for me to get my grandson to several practices and then to a game each week. I like that the kids are having fun and not being drilled to win, win, win. My grandson has been in the basketball program for 2 seasons and he really loves it.
We've been a part of i9 since we moved to Katy in 2009. I love the convince of Saturday only practice/games and the program is very organized. The quality of volunteers for coaching is unlike any I've seen across several leagues. My 6 year old is having a great time this season.
I have coached now for two seasons and love the equal play yet the competetive aspect is still incorporated. This shows the kids to play hard, learn the rules, work as a team and importantly win or lose together.
