Date of Incorporation: 1995
Franchising Since: 2003
Headquarters: Riverview, Florida

Business Description: The franchisor is i9 Sports Corporation. i9 Sports franchises create and supervise youth amateur sport leagues, camps, tournaments, sport clinics, child development, after-school programs, sport or social activities, umpire/referee training, sport-related training programs, and other related products or services that the franchisor may develop, and market and sell products that it designates or approves, like uniforms, jerseys, t-shirts, jackets, shorts, trophies, medals/pins, awards, hats, caps, sporting equipment and supplies, apparel, beverages and food, and other products it designates or approves from time to time.

Franchise Offer: The franchise offered is for the operation of an i9 Sports franchise, which utilizes the franchisor’s System, the Copyrights and Marks to operate, market, sell and provide amateur sports leagues, camps, tournaments, clinics, training, development, social activities, special events, products and related services that it designates or approves.

Financial Assistance: The franchisor does not offer direct or indirect financing, nor does it guarantee a franchisee’s note, lease or other obligation.

Training and Assistance: Franchisees and up to 1 other person must attend, and complete, to the franchisor’s satisfaction, the first four components of the initial training program. The entire Training Program is conducted in six components. If franchisees wish to receive a Field Visit or Additional Training, they must pay the then-current fee. Franchisees, their Manager and/or previously trained and experienced managers may attend any refresher training courses that the franchisor periodically provides and pay the applicable fees. The franchisor may, in its discretion, hold an Annual Conference at a location to be selected.

Territory: The franchise is granted for a geographic area that first must be approved by the franchisor. Franchisees must locate their office for their i9 Sports franchise in their Network Area, unless otherwise approved by the franchisor. Franchisees will be granted an exclusive Network Area wherein they must operate your i9 Sports franchise. Generally, each Network Area is determined by the number of children (ages 14 and under) in population, as determined using the latest statistics released by, and by metropolitan or statistical boundaries, street boundaries, zip codes or housing subdivisions or other criteria the franchisor chooses. A single Network Area must be a contiguous geographic area. Franchisees are granted a protected Network Area to operate an i9 Sports franchise for the type of customers the franchisor designates and for the types of authorized sports within the protected Network Area, based on the Territory level the franchisee chooses.

Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the initial franchise term is 10 years. If franchisees are in good standing, they have the right to renew the Area Developer Agreement for 1 additional 10 year term provided certain conditions are met.

Obligations and Restrictions: The franchisee or a Business Manager who has successfully completed i9 Sports training program must actively operate the i9 Sports franchise on a “full-time” basis consisting of normal business hours. In addition, franchisees must at all times faithfully, honestly and diligently perform their obligations under the Area Developer Agreement, continuously exert their best efforts to promote and enhance the i9 Sports franchise and not engage in any other business or activity that conflicts with their obligations to operate the i9 Sports franchise. Franchisees must offer for sale all products, and perform, provide or render all services which the franchisor authorizes for their Network Area and may periodically require for i9 Sports franchises.
