The SPIRE Institute is an Official U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center. 

At the helm of the Academy is Bobby Bossman, former Head Coach of the Waves Post Graduate program at La Jolla Prep. Coach Bossman and SPIRE are committed to the development and placement of our players. SPIRE Basketball is based on the principles of discipline, teamwork, consistency, leadership, commitment and passion. These principles, our staff's commitment and our complete analysis of every part of your game, make it possible to turn the game you dream about into a reality.

In addition to the Academy, a full complement of weekend, school year and summer camp training programs are available for teams and individuals looking to reach their maximum potential on and off the court.

SPIRE’s High School Academy students board at Andrews Osborne Academy (AOA). AOA’s seven dormitories are large homes housing between eight to twenty-four boarders.  Staff members living in the dorms are responsible for the security, health and well being of boarders.  In overseeing the daily life in the dorms, they keep boarders on schedule for camp sessions, account for their whereabouts, and coordinate boarders’ needs with camp staff and parents.  While the majority of rooms house two students, there are a few that hold three or four.  Bathrooms are shared.


Optional English lessons from Monday to Friday.


Campus players can connect their laptops WIFI or use the computers on campus.


The player provides their own insurance. Option to buy a sports insurance plan for an additional charge.
