I9 Sports

FUN, safety, convenience, and communication is what sets us apart from all other youth sports programs. We are excited to announce our plan to return to play! We want to assure you that getting back to the FUN will not come at the expense of safety. In our organization, we have designed a rigorous “Return to Play Safely” protocol to ensure the safety of your family, our staff and participants. You can return to play with confidence knowing that you will get the same FUN, quality instruction and convenience you’ve come to love and expect with i9 Sports, with extra safety precautions. If our Summer Programs are cancelled due to State and Local restrictions, you will receive a full refund via your method of payment.

i9 Sports North & Central Gwinnett has a passionate staff dedicated to having a positive impact on our community. We sincerely appreciate your patience as we look forward to the start of our Summer season after the July 4th holiday. We will be offering FunSize leagues for Basketball, Flag Football, Soccer, and TBall/Baseball. These leagues were developed based on the current restrictions. We will also be offering clinics for these sports as well as Golf, Lacrosse, Volleyball and Half Day Multi Sport Camps. With all programs, we recommend registering early as we will only be allowing a limited number of participants.

Until we meet up on the field or court in July, check out our local Facebook page and Instagram page where we have been posting fun ways to keep active. Questions please call (470)655-6370 or email Jennifer.jordan@i9sports.com.



Camp Woodmont

Below are some of the protocols we are implementing to keep our campers and staff healthy at camp.

  • While we have always required hand sanitizer before entering our Dining Hall, we will continue this practice, along with requiring it while exiting the Dining Hall for meals.
  • Hand washing will be required by all Campers and Staff upon returning to main camp from activity areas.
  • Bunk beds will be labeled head/foot for alternating sleeping to reduce possible transmission.
  • Public areas of camp will be cleaned and sanitized at least 2x/day
  • Contact surfaces of cabins & mattresses will be cleaned between each session.
  • Bathhouses are currently cleaned daily, but we will deep clean them nightly after all campers have exited.
  • Program equipment will be wiped down between activity sessions.
  • Meals will be served Buffet style to reduce the chances of cross contamination
  • Screening intake at check-in for all campers and staff. This will include temperature checks, along with a host of other questions to be answered each time a new person enters the housing areas.

When families send their child to live with us at Camp Woodmont, they are trusting us to build a community that takes responsibility for everyone’s emotional and physical safety. Just like you, we are anxiously waiting what authorities advise for summer camp.

Currently, the American Camp Association (ACA) is developing resources along with an independent expert panel being coordinated by Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc (EH&E). This panel has convened specialists in pediatric medicine, camp medicine and nursing, epidemiology, infectious disease management, biologic safety, industrial hygiene, organizational design and other technical specialties. These resources will be shared with CDC and state and local health departments so all parties will be informed.

Information will be available to the ACA between now and mid-May, and updated daily. The guide, which is developed by the ACA, will provide resources for camp staff to reduce potential exposures to and spread of COVID-19, and enable camps to make the best decisions possible for opening this summer.

We are hopeful to have camp this summer. We will be in constant contact with updates in the next week.  And, we will not run charge cards until we know that camp is a “go.”

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we sort through this unusual time.
