Have you heard of i9 sports? If not, get excited! i9 Sports is redefining youth sports across the nation. And a new franchise has just opened in this area, open to residents of Smyrna, Mableton, Marietta, Austell, Powder Springs & Sandy Springs too. They believe that participation in an organized youth sport activity is about more than just playing sports, it’s about paying attention to what a child and his/her parents “experience” when the child is playing. i9 Sports Area Developers create and provide an unparalleled experience in organization, convenience, safety, instruction, and fun athletic recreation.

Jig Pandya is the Franchise Owner for the new i9 Sports – Atlanta/Sandy Springs/Marietta/Smyrna/Mableton/Powder Springs/Austell. The inaugural Fall Season (for kids 3-14) will launch in September and games will be held at Nickajack Elementary in Smyrna. Fall sports include Co-ed Flag Football, Co-ed Soccer, and Cheerleading.

Why did you open an i9 Sports franchise here?

Since graduation, I’ve been involved extensively in sports.  I was fortunate to be a true student-athlete as a NCAA tennis player and was very involved in all intramural sports at the University of South Carolina.  I was afforded the ability to be a coach and mentor to numerous players in the sports of tennis and basketball.  While I have a natural affinity for sports, I also greatly enjoy seeing the development of children. 

Having the combination of both sports and kids, i9 Sports was the perfect franchise as an investment.  There are a total of 6 franchises in metro-Atlanta with mine being the most recent.  We’re extremely excited about developing this franchise covering South Cobb County and Sandy Springs.

What is about i9 Sports that was attractive as an investment?
There are over 42 million kids playing organized sports across the country every year.  Obviously, the demand for youth sports is very high in metro-Atlanta.  We feel strongly the opportunity to provide parents the largest youth sports franchise in the nation was the right investment.  With the attention to details of professional management, to the once a week commitment for parents, and to the no requirements of fundraising, no tryouts, no drafts, and volunteer concessions, there is a lot of practical logic with the operations of our business, especially with the busy lifestyles of dual-income households.

How would you describe the concept of i9 Sports?
The whole premise of i9 Sports is FUN for the Kids & Freedom for the Parents!  While I couldn’t list all the great features and benefits we provide here, I would highly encourage parents to visit us online at i9sports.com and also visit us on Facebook to see why over 44,000 parents across the country love us!
