ADDITIONAL TRAINING SESSIONS WITH CLUB COACHES! BEAUTIFUL FIELDS! SAME GREAT IGNITE!

IGNITE Sports Academy is proud to offer both a spring and fall soccer league for boys and girls ages 3-11 years old. We see way too many soccer leagues that emphasize winning over everything else. Our soccer league teaches that winning can be important, but it’s more important how the game is played. We want every child to be playing with a smile on their face the entire game, regardless of the score.

 

This Fall, our continually growing league will return with the opportunity for additional training sessions with NASA Tophat coaches. These sessions are designed to give players a taste of slightly more advanced training conducted by licensed club coaches. These sessions, for IGNITE players only, do not interfere with any teams’ practice and will be offered at a substantially discounted rate.

 

All our games and practices are currently held at Mount Pisgah Christian School, with older divisions taking part in some regional away games. Come be part and see why everybody is starting to play the IGNITE way!

 

Faith-Based. Family-Friendly. Positive Atmosphere.

Coaches

What makes IGNITE Soccer different?
1.  Equal playing time for all players:  All players, regardless of age or division, will play an equal amount of time in the games. There is no “riding the bench” at IGNITE.
 
2. Training with Club Coaches: All players get the opportunity to attend additional training sessions run by certified coaches. These sessions do not conflict with practice.
 
3. No single player will be asked to play a single position. All players are encouraged to play multiple positions and to get involved in the run of play as much action as possible.
