Club Tryouts

Ignite Club Tryouts Overview

Ignite tryouts are two days, so players have the best chance to showcase their talent, and coaches can adequately evaluate each player.  Players may be offered a spot on day 1 or on day 2.  Players may verbally commit to an Ignite Club Team on Saturday, but must return Sunday on Commitment Day to officially accept and sign.  We encourage players to attend our pre-tryout clinics, open gyms, summer camp or classes to prepare, improve their skills and interact with coaches. Tryout Fee is $30 and all players must register online. Please use the age definitions below to choose the correct division.

  6. NCSA Recruiting Accounts - are already included in the fees for all 15u and older teams.

Cost will range between $3,200-$5,400 depending on the team. Factors include number of practices per week, travel tournaments and added value features. (See above for all that's included for our players).  Final Pricing for each team will be available at tryouts. 

Uniform fees

Uniform fees are additional and not included in the Club Fees. For 24-25, they will range between $365-565. Our packages are all-inclusive:  jerseys, warmups, leggings, knee pads, socks, and shoes. We partner with Eclectic Printing and are proudly sponsored by Mizuno--the official sponsor of USA Volleyball and the Paris '24 Olympics.  Together, we offer quality, customized packages that include everything your player needs to "look good and play good."

Ignite's MIssion

To teach volleyball and better the community, while developing leadership qualities and players that are self-advocating and character-driven, raising the level of volleyball and the positive coaching culture in the Inland Valley. We further exist to assist players who desire an education and athletics at the collegiate level.

Why Choose Ignite

We recognize there are a lot of choices when it comes to club volleyball.  Finding the right "fit"  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

Our mission is the development of players and a volleyball organization with value-driven goals.  We provide a large number of scholarships and any "profits" are put back into the organization and into the players. Ignite is led by a board and directors with decades of experience running non-profits. You can be sure that policies and decisions are intentional and try to balance the needs of the organization and all its members. We care about our players and our families and strive to provide the best, sustainable volleyball experience and environment.

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 about each player. It’s a unique combination that makes us special. In a world that can be lacking in role models, our coaches are mentors who are personally invested in their development as players and people. Our coaches maturely speak to players and motivate them 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 among coaches. Ignite coaches use positive coaching techniques to get positive results. 

5. OUR OWN GYM / Location

Yes, we have our own gym,  which means we set our own schedules, and there are no last-minute cancellations or court conflicts with schools or other community organizations.  In addition, our own gym means you have access to other programs outside of practice times. Get extra individual reps or schedule private lessons--that's all because we have our own place.  In addition, Ignite is  centrally located in the Chino Valley just minutes from Chino/Chino Hills, and within 15-30 minutes of the many surrounding communities like: Eastvale, Ontario, Diamond Bar, Pomona, Corona, Mira Loma, Upland, Norco, Fontana, Montclair, Walnut, San Dimas, Rancho Cucamonga, Glendora, Riverside,  Rialto, San Bernardino, Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, and more. 

6. Competitively priced, great value

At 10-20% less than the “bigger clubs” we believe in providing the best value. When considering what Ignite offers: the number of practices, local & travel tournaments, trainer workouts, 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 people get "lost" among all the players in the gym ... and not too small to attract talented athletes. 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 the director, administrative staff, and coaches. 

 

TEAMS

Ignite does its best to provide a club experience for all players. Whether beginner or experienced club player, we believe volleyball can teach the important traits of teamwork, patience/endurance, handwork and character. In addition, we just love this game and want to see more students play--no matter what level. 

To provide players with the appropriate club experience, our teams are identified as follows: 

  • NATIONAL: travel teams competing at the highest level possible. Practices are generally 3 times per week with conditioning/strength training immediately before or after. They play in local SCVA tournaments, travel to the National Qualifiers (e.g., Vegas, Reno, Salt Lake City) , and participate in a year-end travel tournament (JO's or Florida). 
  • PREMIER: Similar to National teams, they provide high competition. They compete in all local SCVA tournaments and attend some qualifier tournaments, and end with a year-end tournament (Jo's, AAU or Festival). Practices are 3 times per week. 
  • ELITE:  Semi-travel teams playing at a competitive level. Practices are 2 times per week with the option to add on conditioning/strength training twice per week. They play in local SCVA tournaments, travel to Vegas for Red Rock Rave, and attend year-end tournaments in Phoenix or Long Beach/Anaheim. 
  • SELECT: beginning to intermediate teams competing regionally. They practice twice a week and play in local SCVA tournaments. There is no travel and no year-end tournament for 12-14 Select, with Summer Soiree as a year-end for 15-18 Select teams. It provides a great beginning club experience without added schedule demands or travel fees.*
  • ASPIRE: Practices are two hours per week and play against other local clubs. A great place to start for players just starting their volleyball journey. 

Prior to tryouts you will be asked to complete our questionairre to indicate your 1st and 2nd preference for a team. We will do our best to match your preference with the spots available.  However, placement depends upon a number of factors including but not limited to the level  and number of players that tryout and the needs of each team. We cannot guarantee which spots we will have to offer and that we can accommodate your preference. We work hard to balance both the needs of the player and the overall needs of each team.  

* Schedule subject to change based on SCVA, USA Volleyball, AAU, JVA or at the determination of Ignite coaches and admin.
