What Is i9 Sports®?

A Youth Sports Franchise Dedicated to Making Sure Kids Have Fun and Stay Active

i9 Sports is the nation’s first and largest youth sports franchise. Since our first franchise was sold in 2003, i9 Sports® has given entrepreneurs a time-tested way to combine their passion for youth sports with their desire for a new career path. As an i9 Sports owner, you get to make a difference in the lives of kids while also building a business for yourself and your family.

The franchise opportunity has many advantages for owners:
     •  It’s a home-based business.
     •  You’ll be busy on Saturdays, but you have tremendous flexibility the rest of the week.
     •  It’s a low-cost franchise that is affordable to start and to operate.
     •  You can build the financial independence that comes from owning a business with many repeat customers and the ability to grow revenue without taking on a lot of fixed expenses.

With more than 3 million player registrations spanning hundreds of communities from New York to Hawaii, our franchise owners offer youth sports leagues, camps, and clinics for boys and girls ages 3 to 14 in today’s most popular sports such as flag football, soccer, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and lacrosse.

Available Growth Markets

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 protected territories. This means that no other franchisee will ever have the right to offer i9 Sports® programs within the ZIP codes you own.
