i9 Sports franchise gives a rewarding career to sports-minded entrepreneurs who enjoy working with children
For entrepreneurs who enjoy working with children, opening a franchise that caters to kids is an obvious choice. Those types of businesses run the gamut — from party places and jump facilities to fitness classes and scientific research. i9 Sports stands out from the crowd, however, offering a fun sports experience for kids and an affordable business opportunity with profit potential for business owners.
“The most fulfilling aspect of i9 Sports franchise ownership is the sense of accomplishment I have at running a thriving business,” says i9 Sports franchise owner Jason Watson. “I really dove into building my business by serving the community and providing great customer service. We work hard to make sure the customers are blown away on game day and have a top-notch experience.”
Serving the community by helping families and teaching kids sportsmanship values are among the rewards of owning an i9 Sports franchise. Former science teacher and i9 Sports franchise owner Brian Watkins loves working with kids. “The best part is going out on the field that first Saturday morning, getting everything set up and then seeing all the cars pull into the parking lot,” Brian says. “The kids then rush out of the cars; they’re so excited to play! Their parents will tell me they slept in their cleats. i9 Sports has allowed me to do something I’m passionate about. I love being my own boss and having a flexible schedule. i9 Sports has empowered me to do what I love while giving back to my community.”
i9 Sports offers low investment, high profit potential, rewarding career
With convenient, flexible hours, which translate into an enviable work/life balance, and no real estate or large upfront inventory requirements, i9 Sports is a compelling low-investment, home-based franchise opportunity with an attractive profit potential. A franchisee’s initial investment ranges from $50,900 to $76,900.
How much can you make with an i9 Sports franchise? The possibilities are wide open! The youth sports market is a multi-billion-dollar-a-year industry encompassing 42 million kids. Every year a new bunch of kids turns 3, and thousands of families are looking for sports leagues that emphasize fun, teach game basics and sportsmanship values and are convenient for busy schedules. i9 Sports encourages franchise owners to offer a wide variety of programs, which enables them to capitalize on the large demand across multiple sports year-round in every season. Our franchise owners offer co-ed youth leagues, camps and clinics for children ages 3-14 in today’s most popular team sports: flag football, soccer, baseball and basketball.
Now is the time to bring an i9 Sports franchise to your community
i9 Sports has a proven formula for operating a successful business with a tremendous market need. It works. We now have more than a decade of results from franchise owners who are meeting and exceeding their dreams of what owning their own business could be. Last year was the largest year we’ve ever had in terms of overall network revenue. Everyone wants to be part of a winning team, and frankly, i9 Sports is a winning team.
“If I were buying a business, I would ask myself three questions: 1) Is this business something I’m passionate about; 2) Does this business have a record of success; and 3) Are the market and this business likely to grow so my investment will appreciate?” i9 Sports President and CEO Brian Sanders says. “The time couldn’t be better to buy an i9 Sports franchise. We have created the rare business opportunity for which someone could answer a definitive ‘yes’ to all three questions.”
As successful as i9 Sports has been since we started, we’ve only scratched the surface of what is possible. Most of our franchisees today have less than a 2.5% share of the potential children signed up in their market.
Brian says, “When you realize how many children there are in each market and how much perpetual demand there is for youth sports, the opportunity is exponential. Not only do we have a massive opportunity to increase our share within existing territories by providing a better customer experience, but we also have a huge opportunity to expand our footprint by continuing to extend into more locations. In the United States, I believe we will easily triple the size of our system. At this rate, however, it won’t take long to fill out the U.S. — the remaining territories are selling out quickly.”
i9 Sports is the country’s premier youth sports franchise
i9 Sports is the nation’s first and largest youth sports league franchise that offers flag football, soccer, baseball and T-ball, as well as basketball to children between the ages of 3 and 14. i9 Sports provides a youth sports experience unlike any other by teaching the importance of good sportsmanship on the field and in life.
