i9 Sports franchise owners are seeing an uptick in business as more consumers discover how different our leagues really are
Average registration revenue, which makes up the majority of revenue for i9 Sports franchise owners, increased 10.55% in 2018 compared to the previous year, according to our latest Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
“We are absolutely thrilled with these results,” says CEO & Chairman Brian Sanders. “When our franchisees are out there aggressively marketing, the hard work pays off for everyone. It proves once again that there’s a ton of opportunity to bring in not only new families, who are introduced to our better youth league sports experience, but also to grow revenue by retaining existing customers.”
What i9 Sports has to offer
Our youth sports league franchise set out in 2003 to change the youth sports experience. Our mission is to help kids succeed in life through sports. We offer several sports and operate multiple seasons year-round. Serving children ages 3-14, i9 Sports franchise owners have the opportunity to keep customers returning for years to come.
i9 Sports offers a fun, safe space where children can enjoy their favorite sports with their friends. We emphasize age-appropriate instruction, and teaching the fundamentals of each sport alongside the value of good sportsmanship. We keep things competitive enough to help kids learn new skills and improve their game without sacrificing the fun factor.
Based in Tampa, FL, i9 Sports has more than 140 locations nationwide, including Hawaii, and more than 2 million player registrations. We are the nation’s first and largest youth sports league franchise business.
Franchisees are able to achieve growth thanks to our consumer value proposition. We replaced a high-pressure, adult-centered sports league model with a child-centered model that puts fun first. And our unique labor model enables franchisees to operate a really strong business with a mix of part-time employees and volunteers. That makes it very affordable to start and to run.
i9 Sports franchise owners offer youth sports leagues, camps and clinics for boys and girls in sports such as flag football, soccer, basketball, baseball and ZIP Lacrosse™. Our franchise is ranked in Entrepreneur’s prestigious list of Top 500 franchises, featured as a Top 100 Game Changer by Franchise Dictionary, and selected as a Project Play Champion by the Aspen Institute for taking meaningful actions to encourage multi-sport sampling and help grow national youth sports participation rates.
