Caliber Car Wash is proud to support local sports programs, including i9 Sports at our Wilmington and Hampstead locations! With a focus on fun, safety, and building confidence, the i9 Sports program provides families in the community a chance to get their kids involved in sports.
In 2003, the first i9 Sports team was created. Now, the program has more than 3 million player registrations in communities across the nation. As a year-round program, i9 Sports offers the opportunity for youth to participate in several sports including baseball, soccer, basketball and many more. i9 Sports is now the nation’s largest youth multi-sport provider and has had a far-reaching impact on kids and adults for almost two decades.
In the Eastern Carolina community, the i9 Sports league leaders are passionate about providing the best youth programs for children across every community. Created in 2015, the Wilmington area league has won multiple awards, including Franchise of the Year and Rookie of the Year. League directors say it’s a popular program in the area and they’re thrilled to see the participation from families.
“We are in a position to give every kid in our local area a place to play regardless of skill level or experience. Our goal is to put the fun back in youth sports,” said Craig Decatur, Program Director of the Wilmington territory.
The i9 Sports program not only provides a safe environment for kids to play, but also teaches local youth sportsmanship principles. Just as our Caliber teams value teamwork, dedication and leadership, i9 Sports gives kids the chance to grow and develop those same qualities. The leagues also focus on including every player, no matter level or experience, with the mission to develop athletic ability and nurture positive attitudes.
“Our local i9 Sports is able to help additional kids get involved in programs because of our amazing sponsors like Caliber! Providing opportunities for families that may not have had the ability to join our league is a great way to connect with the community and Caliber helps make that happen,” said Decatur.
As a returning sponsor, Caliber is thrilled to help provide a number of grants and scholarships to families in need of registration assistance in the Wilmington and Hampstead areas. If you are interested in more information about i9 Sports, you can check out their website here.
