This is our first season trying basketball. It is our favorite for sure! The coaches really teach the fundamentals! After only a few weeks of playing, we noticed a huge change in our sons game! We will be sticking with basketball for sure!! The referee Ray, is awesome and so patient with the kids. You can really tell he loves what he does! Thank you for an amazing season!
We have been involved with I-9 over the last 5+ years and love the program. It not only gives the kids a great place to learn and grow in a fun environment, it also gives the parents a non-intimidating place to take an active role through coaching. I love being able to help build a love of playing sports with the kids. The best is watching them turn into a team over the course of the season, and to see them keep coming back for more! My son loves it and loves now being my co-coach to help me with the younger ones coming in. An all around family fun environment!
Coaches are great, each child is given attention. My son was very shy to play soccer when he first started with i9 but I have seen tremendous growth in him after only a few weeks. His confidence was boosted by the encouragement of the coach and he really enjoys playing now.
I like that it offers fun over winning. Not all children are born athletes and this program lets them play.
So far I have been impressed with the referees that have officiated at our games. Very informative and helpful.
We love that the coaches are so friendly with the children and do not harp on being perfect. They make it fun for the kids. We also enjoy that everything is on the weekend. It is very organized and even the refs practice different drills with the teams. Overall, the experience has been amazing.
I like that it is organized very well and that concept were children are positively motivated. I also like the fact that when a child excels they alone is recognised from his or her accomplishments. The convenience of practice and game is a bonus, I need to take too me away from my other child who not involved in that field activity. BRAVO!!
