If you’re looking for a low-cost franchise opportunity and if kids sports franchises pique your interest, i9 Sports may be the right choice for you. As the first and largest youth sports franchise system and with locations throughout the United States, our program offers benefits that surpass other sports franchises. We prioritize the needs of the community, emphasizing age-appropriate instruction for kids and convenience for parents—in short, we make youth sports fun again.
For people looking to own a franchise, i9 Sports has the appeal of a low-cost investment, a streamlined business model, and the systems and support franchisees need to build their business.
Marketing Your Kids Sports Franchise with Fun in Mind
As a franchisee, you’ll operate a business focused on age-appropriate instruction and friendly competition. Those attributes emphasize that youth sports should be fun, not stressful. Half of kids drop out of sports by the age of twelve due to negative experiences or lack of enjoyment, and 90% of students surveyed said that they would rather play with their friends and have fun than be on a winning team. i9 Sports franchises are built around creating a more exciting athletic opportunity for kids, and that atmosphere will benefit your business. When kids look forward to the once-a-week practices and games, their parents will be more likely to register their young athletes for more seasons in the future.
Registering More Athletes for Multiple Sports
On top of the excitement kids and parents will feel for the i9 Sports Experience, you’ll appeal to their varied interests. Unlike one-sport operations, an i9 Sports franchise includes multiple sports: flag football, soccer, baseball, and basketball. This means that your players and their parents can choose different sports at different times of the year, all while staying in the same fun program!
Running Organized, Well-Coordinated Systems
If you’ve ever had a child play youth sports, or if you’ve been a part of an athletic league yourself, you know that some leagues are prone to scheduling changes, inconvenient delays, and tons of uncertainty. While other kids sports franchises may have the same challenges, i9 Sports emphasizes convenience for parents and players as practices and games are held only one day a week on Saturdays. This helps them focus on the skills and friendly competition rather than running from location to location throughout the week.
The organization and coordination of a youth sports franchise may seem daunting to some, but i9 Sports is committed to easing that process. With our support and training, you’ll learn how to run your youth sports franchise efficiently to satisfy your customers and build your business. All franchisees participate in four training phases throughout their first year of business, including i9 Sports University – a five-day classroom training to meet with every department in the company. Additionally, i9 Sports franchisees utilize our proprietary software to manage registrations and rosters, schedule games, and keep track of nearly every aspect of their business. With a step-by-step guide for managing a franchise and a personal dashboard to measure performance, i9 Sports franchisees have access to the tools they need to run their businesses effectively and efficiently.
