Frank Fiume is a pioneer in the youth sports industry and the founder of i9 Sports—the nation’s first and leading franchisor of youth leagues and camps. Since 2003, i9 has generated over 300 million dollars—with more than two million participants in 900 communities across 30 states nationwide. A baseball fanatic and native of Queens, New York, Frank graduated from St. John’s University and began a career as a medical equipment sales rep, though he was determined to pursue his life’s true purpose. So in l995, he created his own adult men’s softball league, ABA Sports. The start-up company quickly grew to over 900 teams in just six years, making it the largest adult sports organization on Long Island.
In 2003, Frank sold ABA in order to create i9 Sports, a business that catapulted him to national recognition and that Entrepreneur magazine ranked as the #1 children’s fitness franchising.
Frank has been featured on Fox Business News, HBO Real Sports, and in dozens of publications and national news media outlets, including USA Today, Sports Illustrated, and The Wall Street Journal.
In 2017 Frank sold i9 Sports to a private equity firm, but like any founder still feels a great affinity for the brand and is passionate about helping other emerging franchisors find their way as they take their similar journeys.

From saving time and effort to enabling whole new communication models, AI might seem like a magic bullet when it comes to driving engagement, but understanding how and when to use them is key to actually delivering results.
Join us as we discuss how the definition of engagement is evolving.

A revocable trust can have many advantages versus just having a simple will. While many are predisposed to want a simple will, the truth is that a simple will result in all assets passing through the probate court. The probate court can be a slow, cumbersome, and costly process. On the other hand, having a revocable trust can create a more straightforward, faster, and less costly process in the long run. To find out more on this topic, you can read our article on Family Law Headquarters titled: What's the Advantage of a Revocable Trust? You can also call our Estate Planning Attorneys at 855-805-0595 or reach out to our trust attorneys in Chicago, Illinois and elsewhere online.
