Over 200 athletes from the CSA Soccer Academy participated in a speed, agility and quickness program at Ignition this winter. The athletes worked out each Monday for 10 weeks with the Performance staff led by Ted Borgerding. We thank CSA for a great group of athletes and we look forward to a strong partnership in the coming years. Stronger, faster, better at Ignition.
