2018 IGNITE Summer BASKETBALL ACADEMY

 

New Gym, Lower Costs, Same IGNITE Fun!
IGNITE Summer Basketball is back for its second summer season, this time at the Drum Gym on the campus of Mount Pisgah Christian School!
As always, open to the ENTIRE community for rising Kindergarten-8th Grade boys and girls.
 

   

 
 

The IGNITE Summer Basketball Academy will compliment our Winter season by offering a (rising) K-8th grade basketball league with all practices and games at the Drummond Athletic Center at Mount Pisgah Christian School in Johns Creek, Georgia. The Summer season is a shortened, six week season with six practices and six games. The Summer format creates new, fun experiences for some of our younger divisions and unique challenges for the older divisions. See the details below for all the differences between the summer and winter leagues.

 

Space is very limited for this six week season! Early-bird registration for the 2018 IGNITE Summer Basketball Academy is open! Registration cost is a one-time fee that includes full uniform.

 

Our league is focuses on fun, fairness and equal play! Most IGNITE players are beginner to intermediate skill level. We intentionally try to make the teams as even as possible to ensure good competition. Check out all the details below!

What Makes IGNITE Basketball Academy Different?

Halftime Free Throws

Every player at IGNITE gets a chance to score. At halftime, all players from each team line up to shoot free throws that count towards the score of the game (except 5th-6th Grade Boys and 7th-8th Grade Boys).

 

Equal Playing Time 

IGNITE takes multiple steps to ensure that every player will get equal playing time each game and throughout the season. 

 

Positive, Family Friendly Atmosphere

Too many leagues place too high an emphasis on winning. We want every team to experience winning, but we also want to make sure that everybody, from players, to parents, to coaches, is loving the game. We highly encourage everyone involved with IGNITE to think about the heart of the children involved and how the environment can remain positive as often as possible.
