CEO Spotlight – Chris Prowant, i9 Sports

i9 SportsChris, a Florida native, has a wide portfolio of experience from program director to school coordinator to business owner of a lawn service and photography business.  Chris owns the latter with his wife Christy and it’s this business that introduced them to i9 Sports. Aside from her involvement in the photography business, Christy is also a neonatal intensive care nurse in Florida.

After some research into i9 Sports franchising opportunities, Chris knew it was a perfect fit for him and his family.  Chris and Christy decided to embark on a new adventure by opening an i9 Sports franchise in Tallahassee, Florida.

I really love that i9 Sports represents a good, fun, safe structure for kids to learn.  Our Mission is to help kids succeed In life through sports. I like the fact that all kids get the opportunity to play. There is no fundraising, no volunteering required unless you want to be a part of the i9 experience, and the best part is that parents only have a once a week commitment to practice and play on Saturdays.  Through the i9 Sports Experience, our franchisees offer customers an experience that focuses on fun, safety, and convenience.

To round-out this dynamic duo and help provide the i9 Sports Experience in their new city to kids ages 3-14, they brought in Ory Pitts as a partner. Chris and Ory have a shared passion for working with kids in sports and have worked together in an after-school program for the last three years.

Currently the focus is on registering kids for the winter opener. I9 Sports is offering flag football, soccer and t-ball to start and will add basketball in the spring.
