In Loving Memory


Michelle Miranda was not only the first person for whom we ignited Eternal Hope in Nicaragua.  She was a key leader in our upcoming mentorship program. We will with deep conviction carry on her legacy to reach the youth, young adults and athletes of Nicaragua.

The Universal Language of Sport

The universal language of sport transcends even the most disparate contexts, connecting humanity by the delicate tether between adversity and the shared power to overcome. Its common ground invites us to a culture of belonging within which we ignite and reignite hope for individuals so that they can strengthen communities and transform nations.
We ignite hope.
Ignite International (est. 2003) is a dream realized for a Four-time Hall of Fame former NCAA Division I coach to ignite generational cycles of hope one life at a time through the universal language of sport. We have created spark points of hope across a dozen nations through collaboration with national teams, sports federations, Olympic Committees, education leaders, and values-based NGOs.

The COVID pandemic has increased the effects of hopelessness at an alarming pace. To address this urgent trend our unique platform empowers and equips overcomers to ignite generational cycles of hope for those striving to overcome.

"It's time for people to understand that Ignite is not just teams who visit. Ignite is who we are." ~ Rene Quintana | Nicaragua
"Thank you for giving us a way that we can reach our peers with the same message of hope they won't hear any other way!"
~ Michelle M. ~ Nicaragua
