We love soccer, so it gives us a chance to keep playing. Just wish everyone was a little more on page-cause this year witnesses aggressive nonsense from a coach making comments around us parents, and then one game the ref says something is ok-just for the next games ref to allow stuff that is not typical soccer plays.
But we get you can not be on top of everything. And its all working out.
Excellent coaches, teams are varied with skills but ages and size are closely matched, all students learn, play and are encouraged. Recognition is given for hard work and effort! We live I9 and this is our first experience.
I9 sports is an amazing program! From the director, officials, coaches and staff, they provide an amazing experience. The program is very organized and provides a competitive fun for everyone.
I highly recommend this league for all skill levels.
The program, in Hernando County, is very well organized. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Our thanks to Connor Thompson, the Program Director, who actively greets parents and athletes and to our coach Wyatt Brewer who teachers our children sportsmanship and encourages them to do their best. These gentlemen give their time to our children and deserve all of our gratitude. This is our third season with I9 Sports and we'll be back.
Its encouraging instead of competitive. The kids are naturally competitive as it is so the positive environment by your coaches and staff are what makes it a great experience. Its not a "We have to win!" mentality. It is a "Lets learn and have fun" mentality.
I also love how each week has a life lesson integrated into the practice and game time itself. I also really appreciate the coaches (and other members of the i9 staff) promptness in answering any questions and helping with any problems in a quick and timely manner. The communication is wonderful!!
