The Universal Language of Sport

The concepts of sport transcend even the most disparate contexts, connecting humanity by a delicate tether between adversity and shared power to overcome. Through its common ground, we create a culture of belonging within which everyday influencers and extreme overcomers are empowered and equipped for the development of others.

Our Vision
A world without cycles of trauma as everyday influencers and overcomers are empowered and equipped to ignite generational cycles of hope
We ignite hope.
Ignite International is a dream realized for Four-time Hall of Fame and former NCAA Division I volleyball coach Judy Fox to ignite generational cycles of hope one life at a time through the universal language of sport. Since 2003, we have enriched, encouraged and empowered individuals, communities, and teams 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 tragic effects of hopelessness at an alarming pace. To address this urgent trend our unique approach 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
