Designed especially for Kindergarten boys and girls who are brand new to the sport, IGNITE’s K-Ball division will not practice during the week, but will just enjoy some Saturday fun! On Saturdays, players will practice for twenty minutes, take a short break, then play a twenty minute game against another K-Ball team. This division is very informal but tons of fun and a perfect introduction to basketball!

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. Excludes 5th-6th Boys and 7th-8th 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.
