IGNITE'S programs are designed to increase the core strengths of your body. For our student athletes we try to determine ability and place you in a program that will challenge you properly. As you grow, you advance higher in the ranks. Below is a list of our programs from novice to college-ready.
Athletes under 10 years of age
High focus on speed & agility. No weight training. During this important time in a child's life, youth athletes are in their "skill-hungry" years. The body is primed for new information and ready to ingrain new movement patterns. The Youth program is conducted in sessions designed to introduce and create foundations of overall athleticism in a fun, positive goal-oriented, and success-driven environment. Curriculum places a high priority on running technique, athletic coordination, balance, relative strength and the introduction of essential muscular movement patterns.
These elements are vital in establishing a child's athletic foundation for improved performance, injury prevention, and long-term enjoyment of sports. Fundamentals learned in this class are essential to graduating to our FutureStar classes.
