When I started coaching youth sports at 24, I looked at things completely different than I do now at 29 and with a family.
Many youth sports leagues out there don't bother offering sports for kids under six. At i9 Sports, our three- to -five-year-old divisions are always the most popular!
Recently, Pop Warner changed its safety procedures to promore children's safety. Why, then, in a recent game did five children sustain concussions in a 52-0 loss?
Last season at i9 Sports, an overtime game was decided by a last-second touchdown. Kids and parents reacted very differently, showing how important winning is to each group.
This weekend at i9 Sports we had our opening week and I explained to parents how we give out trophies and medals. Read what we do, and the parent's reaction to it!
Recently, i9 Sports had a coaches meeting, and Program Director Matt Elder reflects on a few things that were brought up.
Recently, an NFL legend said that tackle football shouldn't start until high school. So, what is a football fan to do if their child wants to play? Flag football, of course!
i9 Sports weighs in on trophies and medals for everyone versus giving them to just division champions.
A local youth sports program, i9 Sports, is greaty expanding the programs it offers this fall, and has a special deal for Patch readers!
Choosing the right youth sports activity at the right age is very important for child and parent alike.
