  • Enhanced recruiting services for those wanting to play in college! Over 20+ years of college recruiting experience to help your daughter become a student-athlete post HS!
  • More amazing and experienced coaches
  • and much more!

Each year we continue to grow with experienced coaches and a club who cares just as much about our national teams as we do our regional teams. Our club focuses on making it a family experience while teaching proper technique and creating an environment that instills a love for the game.

CHANGES THIS YEAR

  • MORE Volleyball: Last year we were part of the AAU's Power League inaugural season. This included a new format (3 team pools) and was well liked by all. However, we realize that there is a need to compete in both AAU and USAV in order to train our athletes at a high level. Expect more volleyball this year!
  • Enhanced Communication: We will be using TeamSnap for our communications, registration, invoicing, schedules, etc. Last year our experience with SportsEngine was not good. TeamSnap is an industry standard and we're excited to bring this to our families to help simplify and communicate more effectively.
  • New Club Directors: Linda Rodl and Tammy Butler are on board for our 9th season! Their years of experience will allow Ignite to grow and become one of the best clubs in Arizona.
  • Standardized Training: We are rolling out our standardized training program across all of our teams this year. This means that all of your athletes will get top notch training with support from our Master coaches. Our athletes should be trained the same from the moment they enter our club at a young age to when they leave at 18!
  • Enhanced Sports Performance Training Program: Our partnership with THP continues to evolve. This year our training will feature brand new weight lifting equipment. We will also be stepping up the training to elevate our athlete's development!
  • ROX Volleyball: As we continue to feel the effects of COVID-19 around the globe, working with a top brand that does all of it's manufacturing in the United States is critical. There are already rumors of Nike/Adidas not being able to provide jerseys on time, so we're partnering with Rox Volleyball who has their very own production facility in Florida! Not only are the jerseys more lightweight and breathable than what we've had in the past, but they will get to us before our first tournament! Good luck to all the other clubs who go with a different brand - they might be in t-shirts....
  • and so much more! Stay tuned as we roll out new enhancements to our growing family!

TRYOUT STEPS

STEP 1: SPORTS ENGINE ACCOUNT

Its very important that you create a FREE Sports Engine household account in the parent's name. This is the account where you will create your athlete's account and purchase memberships, etc. Having issues with Sports Engine? Click on the Sports Engine Help tab on this page.

STEP 2: REGISTER WITH THE AZ REGION

In order to participate in tryouts, your daughter will need to be registered with the AZ Region. Not only are we required to make sure you have registered, but it's important in case they get injured as membership with the region covers as secondary insurance. You can register here here: JOIN USAV. Please remember to select Ignite VBC as the Club when completing your membership.

VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE PRINT OUT THE MEMBERSHIP CARD and bring to tryouts. 

STEP 3: DETERMINE ATHLETE'S AGE GROUP

This is super important! Please make sure you do this PRIOR to making plans for tryouts. Please do not assume the age - the only way to determine what age group your daughter should try out for is to use the AZ Regions tool.

STEP 4: REGISTER FOR IGNITE TRYOUTS

Registering is important as this lets us know information about your daughter prior to tryouts: things like specific teams you would like to tryout for, specific positions, etc. This info comes in handy when we're evaluating and determining teams.

COMING SOON

STEP 5: FILL OUT AND BRING THE FOLLOWING FORMS TO TRYOUTS OR GET AHEAD OF THE GAME AND BRING TO OPEN HOUSES!

  • Proof of USAV Jr. Membership (membership card or receipt)
  • FINAL FORMS COMING SOON
  • Provide a photocopy of your daughter's birth certificate (if first year playing in the AZ Region)
  • Tryout Fee (online when registering)

At the conclusion of tryouts, players chosen to play with the club will be asked to sign their contracts and an initial deposit (commitment fee - paid in cash, by check or credit card) will be required at that time. Please have a parent available at the conclusion of tryouts to sign the required documents and provide payment.

Testimonial 6

Thank you Ignite for making volleyball fun again for our daughter!

Summer Camp #5

Thank you so much for this wonderful camp. My daughter had the absolute best time. It was at this camp one year ago that she first played volleyball and fell in love with the sport.  I think she’s come a long way in the past year but she says that she has learned more at camp in the past week than she did in the past 6 months of playing at another club.  More importantly, it has helped her build her confidence back up and renew her love for the game.  She was thrilled with her interactions with all of the coaches, saying how nice, helpful, fun and caring everyone is.  I haven’t seen her this excited about anything in a long time.  Every single day she came home exhausted and extremely happy. I simply couldn’t ask for anything more.  

Testimonial 2

It’s a family and that is important to our family.

Great Clinic

My daughter had a really good time during your clinic.  I watched the last hour of the clinic and I was very impressed on the way your staff really connected with ALL the girls. Not only did they give great instructions but also took the time to give praise individually.  I watched my daughter trying so hard to do her best but also watched her have the biggest smiles while doing it.  Thank you!!!

Testimonial 13

We have seen such an improvement since our daughter started with Coach Shawn. His positive approach has helped her with her confidence, and he has helped her improve in the areas she is weak in. We are really happy with our experience. Thank you Coach Shawn!

Testimonial 8

Being a part of Ignite has provided our daughter all of the best of what it means to be part of a team: leadership, communication, camaraderie, teamwork, conditioning and the ability to meet new challenges. Ignite brought the best out of our daughter.

Testimonial 7

Ignite is more than a volleyball club. It is a collective group of coaches and parents that truly love the sport and love watching the girls play. Few moments as a parent are as gratifying as watching your child do something they love.

Testimonial 9

Ignite was a wonderful experience for our daughter. We enjoyed all aspects of the club and going to the tournaments.

Testimonial 12

Great Club, Great Coaches, Great Experiences. My daughter’s confidence and passion for volleyball has soared!!

Testimonial 3

Great family and friendly atmosphere of the club. The administration constantly strives to improve the club and actually listens to valid concerns of the parents.

Testimonial 1

Friendly, approachable director and coaches. You gave our daughter the confidence that her previous (3 years) in club volleyball had taken away from her.

Welcome quote

You will not feel as welcomed as a parent and your child will not feel as cared for as a player at any other club in the valley as you do here at Ignite.

Testimonial 11

Ignite’s club experience took our girls to a whole new level of skills and enthusiasm for the game.

Testimonial 10

Not just a club team… it’s more like family!

College Recruiting

We will be introducing our amazing recruiting program soon! No one in the industry recruits the way we do and we're excited to show you what's it's all about.

We are experiencing a lot of parents that are purchasing the membership under their own name instead of their child. The only way to remedy the situation is to cancel the membership and have them start over.
 
The parent must have the household account, then when purchasing the membership, they need to Add a Child during the membership process.
