SPIRE POST GRAD

Post grad programs, also known as a “fifth year” or “gap year” programs, allow high school graduates to optimize their athletic, academic and life skills while pursuing admission to the college or university that is best suited for them.

In response to the growing demand for post grad programs created by today’s challenging environment and pandemic, SPIRE has launched customized basketball, track & field, swimming and esports training and competition post grad programs directed by top coaches and industry experts.

There are many reasons for high school graduates to opt for a post grad program. Some graduating seniors may not be ready to compete at their desired level in college sports, while others may need time to improve technically and mature athletically to get the right offer. Some players have academic reasons for taking this year between high school and college, while others need an additional year to build the independence needed to succeed in college.
