SPIRE Soccer is an elite training/development center for high school age players looking to realize their full potential. The full time academy program and its college preparatory academic program provides world class facilities, comprehensive support and the expert teachers and coaches required to fully develop student athletes and prepare them for college soccer, both on the field and in the classroom.
Players get the opportunity daily to work on technical aspects of their game at an elite intensity, improve their strength, speed and conditioning and to improve their soccer IQ. The latest technology and highly qualified performance coaches monitor players progress and push them to get the best out of themselves, both mentally and physically.
The SPIRE Soccer teams play against the highest levels of competition nationally, and players are regularly scouted by top level college coaches and possibly even professional clubs. Players are exposed to playing games against college players, MLS academies and international academy teams. Our singular focus is to provide our athletes with as many opportunities as possible to be exposed to the speed, intensity and physicality required to not only compete, but to excel, at the appropriate next level of the sport.
We were very clear when appointing our academy head coach we wanted someone who could bring some old school toughness and experience, with the modern coaching techniques and international experience. At SPIRE we focus on developing our players for college and the professional level and Sean’s understanding of the work and intensity, and technical and tactical skills for the modern game will be a huge asset for our players. We are really excited about Sean joining us and I am certain any player under his guidance will get better and have a clear understanding of what it takes to get to the top. – Troy Bingham
“I’ve had a lot of experience building successful teams, and that will continue at SPIRE, what I enjoy the most here is that even though all of the coaches are intensely passionate and committed we all encourage creativity and curiosity we want our athletes to never stop learning and improving but they need to enjoy the work while they’re doing it.” – Sean Lane
