Tryouts are an opportunity for Ignite coaches and directors to assess player's skills and abilities. We consider athleticism, experience, coach-ability, attitude and positions when placing players on teams.
At the end of tryouts, players who are a good Ignite fit will be given an invitation for an Ignite NATIONAL, ELITE or SELECT team. (Ignite Visalia team(s) are labeled PREMIER.) Click here for more on teams. On two day tryouts, Ignite strongly encourages players to attend the first tryout for the best team choices AND return the 2nd day. While there is no guarantee, those present at earliest tryouts are considered first for highest level teams. Those who return the 2nd day will be evaluated further for best team placement.
We recognize there are many clubs to consider. Ignite encourages players/parents/families to find the right culture--the proper mix of club values, coach mentoring, quality instruction, practice location and price. Not all club experiences are the same! Please ask any and all questions to help make the best decision for your child and family. Click here to send us a question by email.
