Plus you get to build a career doing things you enjoy, like:
- Using sports to help kids have fun, build skills, and build character
- Developing a support team that shares your passion
- Serving your community
A new career with major upside
i9 Sports offers many owner benefits:
- Very low overhead with minimal paid staff and no need for your own facility, which keeps your fixed costs low
- Multiple sports create multiple opportunities to serve customers, which increases retention
- Leagues serve kids ages 3 to 14, which means happy customers will stay with you for years
- Customers tend to bring friends and siblings into your league, which helps you grow
- Expanding is as simple as securing additional venues and hiring a few part-time staff
- A support infrastructure in place, with marketing professionals and business coaches to help you grow the business and maximize ROI.
In addition to being your own boss, your new schedule will offer a flexibility that’s not possible with other kinds of careers. i9 Sports holds practices and games on the same day once a week. The convenience of a one-day-a-week obligation is a major draw for i9 Sports customers, and it’s also nice for you. You and your staff will be on the field one day a week – unlike other youth sports organizations that often have practices and games multiple times each week.
The flexibility gives you more time to market your business, which is key for growth.
