MORE GAMES! ADDITIONAL FIELDS! NEW DIVISIONS!

Beginning Spring 2018, our U12 divisions will get MORE GAMES (sometimes 2 per week), providing the perfect transition for players looking for something more than recreation, but not quite ready for Club. Each team will also receive at least two specialized training sessions from certified soccer coaches and/or speed & agility trainers. See below for all the details.

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 is 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.

 

All our games and practices are currently held at Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church. Come be part of the hundreds of families playing soccer the IGNITE way! All the details are below.

THE TEENY TINY DETAILS!

 

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. Half-time PKs:  All players of the U8 and below divisions get to take a penalty kick at half time that will count in the overall score of the game. This gives each player a real chance to score a goal. 
 
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.
