I am Coach Scott, and I have enjoyed sports and working out my entire life. I grew up playing soccer from elementary through high school where I also competed in indoor and outdoor track.
After college, I joined the U.S. Army where I learned the right and wrong ways to train and motivate individuals and teams. While serving, I played soccer, flag football and rugby on my unit and/or post teams. I also attended many grueling courses designed to test you both physically and mentally which allowed me to learn a lot from them and about myself, too. After eight deployments, I understood the importance of not only physical fitness but also mental toughness.
After 22 years, I decided it was time to try something different, so I retired from the Army and am now working at Ignite Sports passing on what I have learned. I am a NIRSA Flag Football Certified Referee.

Coach Julian, Coach
Hi, I’m coach Jules. I’m originally from Orlando and moved down to the beautiful treasure coast 7 years ago. While growing up in Orlando, I was introduced to sports at a young age started with soccer at 3 years old, baseball at 7, flag football at 8, track and field at 10, tackle football at 11, and then Lacrosse at 12. I continued playing sports through Middle School and also into High School. Out of all the sports the one I excelled in and fell in love with the most was Lacrosse. It has the excitement of football, the technicalities of hockey, and the speed of soccer. I have 16 years of Lacrosse experience under my belt. Lacrosse has taught me to be disciplined, level-headed, humble, respectful, and how to have fun! I also have always had a love for teaching and coaching! It’s time to bring more Lacrosse to south Florida and I’m excited to teach and share all the fun and values I learned and cherished as a player!!!!
