I love how i9 focuses more on teaching the skills of the game and having fun than on competition. I9 gives the kids a chance to try out several different t sports while they’re young to see what they like best to persue. It’s a very positive atmosphere.
Everything is so organized. I also appreciate that games and practices are condensed to just Saturday mornings, giving us family time and homework time throughout the week. I like that the coaches and referees focus on teaching and that there are expectations for parental behavior.
I like how the programs are based on respect and teamwork. The i9 staff connect well with the kids and the parent coaches work very well with the kids. I like the close proximity of the programs and how the practice is immediately before the game- much better than having to carve time out of a busy week!
