Meet Our Future Franchise Owners
One of the strengths of i9 Sports® is its commitment to keeping sports fun for kids and convenient for parents. It’s not only great for kids and their families, but also a great business model for the youth sports industry.
Kids who play in sports leagues that value sportsmanship over competition are far more likely to continue playing sports as they grow up. Because our sports leagues include children as young as 3, our players can remain in our leagues for years, and the opportunity to play multiple sports keeps kids engaged.
We offer leagues for flag football, soccer, baseball, basketball, lacrosse, and volleyball. With the chance to play multiple sports, kids can try different activities and find the sports they enjoy most.
The importance of sports
If you agree that sports are important for kids, then i9 Sports is a good fit for you. We believe that sports teach life skills, teamwork, and the habit of staying fit — all important lessons that will serve kids well now and later in life.
i9 Sports provides a joyful environment, which encourages re-enrollments season after season and leads families to invite friends and family to join their sports leagues. In fact, many i9 Sports owners became franchisees after becoming involved with i9 Sports as a parent, player, or volunteer coach.
One owner’s journey
i9 Sports owner Craig Magram says, “My son’s first season was in spring of ’07. He went through the i9 Sports program for years.”
After his son, Justin, finished his first season playing football and basketball, Craig was talking with the league organizer and asked, “You can do that for a living?” And the owner said, “Yeah, sure can.”
Craig’s only regret? “I wish I would have done this earlier. I’m turning 50 and would have loved to start this in my 20s.”
