At i9 Sports, every young athlete can find their arena
Did you know that basketball is i9 Sports’ second-largest sport offering, based on registrations? If you’re interested in basketball franchise opportunities — and the tools to offer more youth sports — then you’re in the right place. i9 Sports is the first and largest youth sports franchise opportunity in the U.S.
Beyond basketball, we have leagues for today’s popular youth sports: soccer, flag football, baseball, tennis, volleyball, and lacrosse. There’s something for every young athlete.
All of our youth sports leagues stem from our core belief: Every child deserves an opportunity to play. Our diverse offerings cater to a variety of interests and abilities, ensuring no one feels left out.
Why partner with i9 Sports?
We offer low startup costs and low overhead. Our business model doesn’t require buying land or constructing buildings. This lack of real estate expenses helps keep our costs affordable.
Our business model
As pioneers in youth sports, we’ve refined our business model through the years. When you choose i9 Sports, you’re aligning with proven expertise, a reputation for excellence, and a nationally known brand. As your business grows, you’ll have the template to scale it.
Our commitment to inclusivity extends beyond just words. We have leagues for boys and girls ages 3 and up, and our teams have no drafts or tryouts. This inclusive approach has given i9 Sports an incredible culture. While many sports leagues are permeated with anxiety about competition — which can make sports feel like work — we keep sports fun.
Starting your own business can seem intimidating, but you’ll have our home team’s support. From your first training session to ongoing operational support, the home office and your i9 Sports business couch are there to help.
Our range of sports
While we offer great basketball franchise opportunities, it’s our range of sports opportunities that’s appealing to families and provides year-round revenue for our owners — unlike leagues that offer a single sport, limiting your seasons.
Our same-day practice and play model is ideal for busy families. Many of our customers choose i9 Sports because we don’t require multiple practice sessions during the week. Our leagues practice, then play, on the same day. This also simplifies managing the leagues for owners and makes it easy to find refs and coaches.
Beyond basketball franchise opportunities
Sports are more than just games. They provide a way to shape children’s characters, foster relationships, and build community. They can also be a great business. We invite you to enter the world of youth sports. Start now by downloading our free ebook.
