SPIRE BASKETBALL CAMPS

The focus of our camp training is skill development, technical/tactical training, and athlete performance conditioning (ie. physical work and mental skills). A Development Plan will be created for each player based on what he or she needs to focus on to get to the next level. Our small group training approach provides the opportunity to deliver personalized, customized instruction from our coaching staff.

SPIRE features state-of-the-art basketball and athlete performance training facilities. And the coaching and training staff in both departments are second to none. The coordinated programming approach delivered by these experts will help SPIRE campers grow and develop, on and off the court.
