We are very excited to announce our 2017 Summer Beach Program! Practices will be twice a week at Horizon Park near 101/Frank Lloyd Wright on Tuesday and Thursday nights. This location is closer to our home gym at Victorium. Cost: $250 for each session. Includes an Ignite t-shirt, but does not include tournament entry, etc. Drop-in option available for $30 each practice. No Partner needed for the practices. Attending local and out of state tournaments are NOT a requirement for this program. It is just a lot of fun if you do! 🙂 Athletes do not need to be a member of Ignite Volleyball Club to participate. Anyone from any club can be a part of this – both boys and girls. It is also not necessary to pass on this if your daughter is going to play at Festival in June. Both can be done simultaneously. Be sure to sign up quickly as spots will fill up fast!

(see map/address below) Horizon Park (June/July/August Sessions) Horizon Park has some of the nicest courts in the area. There are 2 locations within Horizon Park that have sand courts, please be sure to come to the courts in between the 4 baseball fields. You’ll know you are in the right place if you see 4 sunken volleyball courts (the other location only has 1 at ground level). The link below shows the exact location of Courts 1 and 2.
