History

We have a proud history and have many years experience in youth development work, academy-based camps and programmes for young athletes.

Ignite Sports Academy

The Ignite Sports Academy was established in 2001 as a project of YFC Wellington, to provide opportunities for sports-mad young people to reach their potential.  Over 300 senior High School young people attended these 'live in' academy camps held during the school holidays in both Wellington and Christchurch.  Participants not only learnt important sporting skills but interacted and journeyed with many successful and known athletes and coaches.

Ignite Sport Trust

In 2007 Ignite Sport was set up as its own Charitable Trust to facilitate a range of sports-based initiatives and projects with the aim of further supporting and serving athletes, schools, sports clubs and communities across the region.
