Overall a good program, focusing on the sport fundamentals but also instilling teamwork and sportsmanship by highlighting weekly values. In addition, the program support members are very helpful by offering guidance and coaching.
They actually take the time to teach the kids not just tell them once and expect everyone to understand. My son loves to play sports but most organizations don't really take the time to teach they just want to win with the kids who pick it up quick.
The program is parent and child friendly because of the way the sports activities are scheduled. You have your practice and games on the same day at the same location so that parents do not have to travel all over place for their child’s activities. It’s win win for everyone!!!
My son was afraid to play basketball a year ago and thanks to the patient, thoughtful coaching and administration of the people who work for and volunteer for i9, my son is now crazy about basketball and wants to be a professional basketball player. He’s finishing his 4 season with i9 and signed up for a 5th. He always has a smile on his face when he’s playing at i9. I love this organization and recommend it to my friends all the time!
I like that practice and game same day and only one day a week. I like that everyone plays. Most coaches are fair but some let their best player play the whole time or if they get behind. Some of the refs are good but some are very unfair. Our team was fouled repeatedly and my child was hit in the face twice his face was red but she never called a foul for our team but she called at least four against us for the same kid on the other team. My coaches have always been fair and play everybody equally.
The coaches are very dedicated to the kids, I like the way they group them prior to the start of the game and discuss the topic for the day. The kids are supported throughout the games and that shows true leadership. The kids show enthusiasm and good sportsmanship during play, they respect each other and care for themselves. At the end of the game, they get snacks which is always exciting. I truly like i9 sports and highly recommend this as a great way for everyone who wants their child to excel socially and physically.
The coaches also communicate effectively with parents each week which is great
