We recognize there are a lot of choices when it comes to club volleyball. Finding the right "fit" club for players and families is important. Here are some of the top reasons to play for Ignite:
1. We are a Gold Medal Squared Certified Club
Ignite has partnered with arguably the best volleyball instruction available. GMS coaches are at the highest levels collegiately and internationally. Ignite takes Gold Medal principals and their coaching technique to provide solid fundamental and advanced training. Club coaches are trained by GMS staff.
2. Ignite is a value-driven, non-profit organization
We’re led by a board and director with decades of experience running non-profits. You can be sure that policies and decisions are vetted, furthermore no individuals directly benefit from the organization. Rather we are here to provide the best sustainable volleyball environment, that’s filled with quality instruction, character driven coaches and an organization built on integrity.
3. College Recruiting
Ignite helps every player that wants to compete at the next level. There are over 1900 colleges with women's volleyball programs. It's a great opportunity for juniors to play beyond High School while receiving a solid education. Not only is our director and our coaches involved in recruiting, but Ignite has partnered with both NCSA and Volleyball Live Recruiting to: a) inform families on the recruiting process; b) develop personalized strategies; and c) give access to the best platforms for getting noticed by college coaches.
Every 15u and older team will be given an NCSA account and access to our club recruiter. Together we provide the best education and athletic matches to increase your chances of playing at the next level. Whether that's at a JC, D3, NAIA, D2 or D1 school, Ignite is committed to helping each and every player that wants to go to the next level.
4. A competitive yet nurturing environment
Our coaches know volleyball, but they also care deeply about each player. It’s a unique combination that makes us special. In a world that lacks role-models, our coaches are mentors for juniors, personally invested in their development as players and people. Our coaches maturely speak to players and motivate through frank conversations, encouragement, competition and feedback. As an organization, we do not tolerate "screaming" at teammates, manipulation, or unhealthy coaching styles which are unfortunately, very prevalent amongst club coaches. Ignite coaches use positive coaching techniques to get positive results.
We’re centrally located in the Chino Valley within 15-20 minutes of Chino, Chino Hills, Eastvale, Ontario, Diamond Bar, Pomona, Corona, Mira Loma, Upland, Norco, Fontana, Montclair, Walnut, San Dimas, Rancho Cucamonga, Glendora and more.
6. Competitively priced, great value
At 20-30% less cost than the “bigger clubs” we believe in providing the best value. When considering what Ignite offers: the number of practices, local & travel tournaments, assistant coaches, college recruiting and specialized instruction; we believe in providing the best return on your investment of time, effort and money.
7. Not too Big, Not to Small ... but just right
Ignite is not too big, where one could get "lost" among all the players ... and not too small like a number of startups. It's a perfect size to connect with other players and families, while creating a competitive feel. Best of all you have personal access to our director, admin and coaches.
