i9 Sports North and North Central San Antonio provides organized youth leagues lasting six–eight weeks. Unlike other leagues, i9 Sports meets once a week, opening up practice facilities one hour prior to games so kids can practice fundamentals and performance-enhancing hugs immediately before the game. That way, budding sportsmen can implement what they've learned right away and parents don't have to rent a limo to chauffer kids back and forth every day. In a nurturing setting that forbids taunts and angry shouts from both kids and parents, young batters and goalies will each get equal playing time alongside healthy competition. Coaches teach a new value each week, and whichever child displays the most accurate interpretive dance to best mimic it during the game gets a sportsmanship medal. A weekly newsletter keeps parents abreast of the week-to-week lessons and progress.
Camps at i9 Sports are full- or half-day vacations for kids and adults who value sportsmanship and teamwork. Camps last five days Monday through Friday and focus on fundamentals, skills, smiles, drills, leadership, and games. Coaches are background-checked and are certified instructors whose passion for sports creates an engaging environment for children, especially with a coach-to-student ratio of about 1:15, depending on the program. i9 Sports is a professional sports service that ensures children's safety, providing hydration and an arsenal of armored anti-aircraft Humvees just in case.
