Ignite Academy Clinics Our Academy Program is designed for all skill levels. We practice twice a week for 2 hours each for a total of 4 hours. The key to getting better at the game of volleyball is having more court time and getting great coaching - Academy does both! Whereas most rec teams are coached by parents with little to no knowledge of the game, Academy provides top notch club coaches with years of experience! Our science-backed coaching process ensures that each athlete is learning the game based on proven principles and methods. It's the best option out there for a very economical price! ACADEMY NOW AVAILABLE TO ALL SKILL LEVELS! We now have 4 courts at our practice facility, this allows us to better adjust courts to keep the skill levels as close to similar as possible. So if you are a true beginner, we will have a practice plan designed for you to work on all aspects of the game: setting, passing, serving, hitting, etc. If you have played competitive volleyball, maybe a year or two of club, our Intermediate courts will be best for you. If you are older, more skilled, we will have a court for you as well - working on various skills as well as playing more competitive games (quads/etc). ADVANCED COURT: For our older, more advanced level athletes, we'll have 1 court dedicated to some tweaks to skills and game play. For the next few weeks, we'll focus a lot on HS students looking to brush up on skills prior to tryouts. INTERMEDIATE: We'll have an intermediate court also designated for skill development and game play. DEVELOPMENT/BEGINNERS: Those still new to the sport will focus mostly on skill development.

This program is geared towards making sure your daughter gets better at the game they love. How are we different than a traditional league? Practices are twice a week for 2 hours each - 4 total hours (more than any league experience). More time on court equals learning the skills faster Trained by our club coaches with the same drills as our club athletes, learning the game the way it was meant to be played. A focus on active, game-like drills that enable more engagement/touches versus standing in line waiting for their turn. A fast-paced, energetic program! Scrimmages are half-court, 3v3 or 4v4 games to encourage control and lots of touches. We do not coach the girls to win the game by passing the ball over on the first hit in order for the other team to make a mistake. We focus on 3 touches (pass, set, hit) so that they learn the game the right way! Target audiences: Beginners: Athletes with little to no formal experience Intermediate: Athletes with some experience, but need more skills development Advanced: Club and competitive experience Program Details: Each monthly session starts at the first Mon/Weds of every month and ends the last Mon/Weds of every month. First half of the session will focus on development of skills and game-like reps Last half will be a mix of development and scrimmages Practices will be during the week, leaving weekends for family time! Cost The cost for this program is $199 which includes lots of court time, club level coaching and a focus on helping your daughter learn the game based on scientifically proven methods and principles.
