Why are so many entrepreneurs drawn to the i9 Sports franchise business opportunity? Aside from the appeal of sports and the ability to make a difference in the lives of kids, our model makes a huge difference in the lives of our franchise owners and their families! i9 Sports franchises are home-based and offer our franchise owners the freedom, work/life balance, and financial independence that only come through owning your own business.

How do I make a living with Youth Sports?

Let's begin with how our youth sports franchise owners make money. i9 Sports franchise owners make money primarily through the registration fees paid by participants to play in our leagues, camps, clinics, and after-school programs. Our franchise owners build market share and a loyal following by offering multiple sports, at multiple locations, four seasons a year. In addition to registration fees, our youth sports franchise owners generate supplemental revenue from local sponsor advertisements, concessions, merchandise and partnership fees.

Today, buying a franchise appears to be a choice between paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for a franchise from a well established brand or paying much less for a young, unproven franchise concept. Luckily, buying an i9 Sports franchise is a rare exception. An i9 Sports franchise owner’s initial investment and franchise start up costs will range from a low of $50,900 to $76,900 depending on the size of territory purchased. It is important to consider that these figures do not include funds that a franchise owner will need for living expenses while starting the business.

An i9 Sports franchise is a complete system for success providing all of the tools necessary to make each franchise thrive.

When you buy an i9 Sports franchise, your territory will be carefully configured by zip code based on the population of kids under age 14, the density of that population, and a database analysis to help identify the absolute best zip codes. Unlike many other franchise systems, i9 Sports awards exclusive and protected territories. This means that no other franchisee will ever have the right to offer i9 Sports programs within the zip codes you own.
