In brief: 11 oz, or 330 mL
Rule of thumb is a childs bladder capacity should be their age inyears +2 oz.
Thus 11 oz for a nine year old.

In brief: Age + 2 (in ounces)
The way to estimate a child's bladder capacity is to take the age of teh child (in years) and add 2.
This give the number of ounces that a child's bladder can hold. So, a 9 y/o child will hold 9+2 = 11 ounces.
