Nets On Fire Club Basketball
Why Ignited and Nets on Fire?
For decades Southern Utah has been notorious for great basketball teams and amazing individual basketball players. Ignited and Nets on Fire are committed to keeping that reputation alive and doing our part to improve Southern Utah basketball, by offering something that in large part has been missing…a consistent elite AAU program. Ignited will be the premier AAU basketball club in Southern Utah and will be a force in the AAU circuit for years to come. Starting in the spring of 2022 we are offering elite level competition teams for boys and girls from 10U-17U. The Ignited teams will compete in local, state, regional and national tournaments with the best basketball players from the area assembled together to represent our Southern Utah community.
Ignited operates under Nets on Fire, this means athletes will have access to the best courts, equipment, trainers and coaches in the area. Nets on Fire and Ignite also have an exclusive relationship with IHC Sports Performance. Ignited players will have exclusive access to high caliber basketball training paired with state of the art sports performance training. All of this happens under one roof!
Ignited team members will be a part of Nets on Fire Youth Leadership Academy which provides opportunities for character development, leadership training, service and community engagement.
Being a part of the Ignited will be a full, meaningful and rewarding experience on and off the court!
Teams will be selected through tryouts and invitations by a combination of coaches and trainers from Nets on Fire. Teams will consist of 8-10 players. Once a player is selected to a team, the player and their parents/guardians will be required to agree to the “Ignited Basketball Club Expectations and Terms”. “Ignited Basketball Club Expectations and Terms” clearly explains what it means to be a member of Ignited. All details for practice, training, tournaments, uniforms, gear, cost, conduct, etc. will all be included. Some of this information is included below.

PRACTICE & TRAINING
The AAU competition season goes from April – July. Ignite teams will practice twice a week starting the week of March 21st, 2022. IHC Sports Performance training will be stacked with basketball practice to make visits to Nets on Fire more efficient. There will be dedicated breaks throughout the season to accommodate family vacations and high school sport camps.
Ignited team dues vary by team level since schedules may vary between teams. There will be an initial $200 club fee and a separate gear purchase fee which is explained below. Fees will then be requested on an event to event basis. These fees will vary based on tournament entry fees and accommodations.Tournament fees do not cover food or transportation to and from tournament locations. Players will have the option to travel with the coaches/team for an additional fee. Players can always travel with parents, which is encouraged!
Fundraising and donations are possible at the team level to help decrease the cost per player.
Each player will be required to purchase an IGNITED gear package from our online store. The online store will be open for about a week after teams are announced. Those who are selected to a team will have to order within that week. The required gear package includes digital game uniform, t-shirt and long sleeve warm-up shirt. There are optional add-ons like backpack, hoodie, travel gear, etc.
We will also have a fan store where parents and families can order gear to show their support for IGNITED!
