About i9 Sports® | Soccer
Spring programs are coming soon!
The i9 Sports® team of Howard County and Silver Spring offers quality youth sports programs for boys and girls ages 3 – 14. No matter the program your child participates in, our #1 priority is ensuring that all families participating in i9 Sports® programs throughout Columbia, Ellicott City, Jessup, Elkridge, and Silver Spring have a fun, well-organized and safe experience that teaches young athletes the fundamentals of the game, healthy competition, and good sportsmanship.
This is an instructional program led by i9 Sports® Certified Staff and supported by i9 Sports® Certified Volunteer Coaches. Each week, practices focus on age-appropriate drills and skills then kids put them into practice with scrimmages.
