About Ignite Canada
Who we are
Where it all started
Coach Charles and Coach Michelle started the Ignite program with their family in mind. With their daughter and two sons starting basketball early through the WMBA and its Steve Nash basketball program, it became clear that their kids should compete at a higher level. So, with proven success in the WMBA league and with the growing, club-basketball community in Winnipeg, Charles and Michelle decided to establish Ignite for their kids and other kids from the southwest Winnipeg area.
Starting in 2014, it was just the 2003 girls team. Then early 2015, the 2004 boys were introduced with the 2005 boys by the end of that year. Within this short timeframe, Ignite has become known to have diverse teams with kids that are developing into well-rounded players and finding team success. Ignite is one of the top club basketball programs in Winnipeg.
