Our organization recently surveyed children around the USA on their experiences playing youth sports. Among the results and findings, we learned that 80% of those surveyed quit playing team sports before the age of 12 citing that it was no longer fun. When we peeled back that onion, here’s what we learned.
- 60% of the kids told us it was common to be called unflattering names during sporting events, often by adults.
- 35% told us they had more fun when their parents weren’t in attendance.
- 20% indicated they witnessed a verbal or physical assault involving adults
- Sadly, 45% said they now prefer to play video games instead.
i9 Sports has risen in popularity, both locally & nationally, to keep kids out on those fields & courts and to make sure the only thing that matters is having fun. THAT’S THE ONLY THING WE TAKE SERIOUSLY! We know the benefits of playing team sports are numerous, well beyond the final scores. Kids who play sports generally have better self-esteem, get better grades in school & achieve better physical condition, among other things…
We offer a variety of sports options (Flag Football, Soccer, T Ball, Cheer, Basketball & Summer Camps) at convenient locations in Denton County for kids 3-14.
Visit our website (click here) for more details or to join as a free member to stay on top of upcoming seasons.
All programs involve just one (1) trip to the fields each week, practice & games held on the same day so we’re great for those with busy schedules! Did we mention we’re great for beginners?!?
