We are first time player and coaches. The staff has been so helpful with our weekly practices and games. As parents and coaches, I love that the program has detailed weekly practices, videos and explanations for what is to be practiced. My daughter found a true love for Volleyball and even had some classmates on her team. They get to play and learn the game without the stress of winning at every game.
There are organized, I know that at least 1 coach will be there! All players get to play! And they learn a weekly new word each week! All practice and games are same day! And they are getting the basic skills of the game!
I like the atmosphere of cheering and encouraging EVERY player, no matter their skill level.
We've had our son in I9 sports several seasons now, and we've appreciated the way the sportsmanship values have been emphasized and medals given with thought and explanation to the kids about why the recipients were chosen. However, this soccer season, there has been no discussion with the kids concerning the specific sportsmanship values, and the medals are just passed out with a so-and-so "gets a medal" and so-and-so "gets a medal". No discussion of the sportsmanship values at all. Disappointing.
