Why spire camps?

SPIRE Camps encompass skill development, technical/tactical training and athlete performance training within a competitive environment to help prepare you for the next level.

Every year, athletes from around the world choose to train at SPIRE Academy. Now you too can train on campus within academy-inspired co-ed, boarding and non-boarding camps at SPIRE. Athletes can choose from a variety of sport program options for different durations and focused on various specialties. Camps are available for all ages, genders and abilities.

SPIRE Camps are an experience you will never forget. Here’s why:


    Whether you’re trying out for your school team or training for the Olympics – what’s important is that you are getting better and steadily developing while following the customized path you established to reach your individual goals.
