Athletes that train at the Spellman Performance Center for at least 2 years have a near perfect success rate of reaching the next level.

"If you're trying to become the best athlete you can, you need to get out here. It's a great environment that pushes you to compete and give your all. The Spellman team has helped me improve my speed, agility, change of direction and has helped me compete against better competition."

"I started working with Les when I was 14. I could tell by his personality, by the light that he has, that I was with the right person. I knew I could achieve my dreams with him, and that is exactly what happened. I've broken nearly every record at Stanford University's Soccer Program and got the opportunity to play with the US Women's National Soccer Team. I know for certain I would not be where I am right now if it wasn't for Spellman Performance"

What is the Spellman Scholarship?

Les Spellman, having spent six years dedicated to fine tuning the skills of 56 Olympic and 47 NFL athletes, realized the importance of nurturing the youth community at the grassroots level. Our mission is to pour into our developing young athletes and witness the key moments of their early achievements. 

Returning to San Diego, we are committed to providing scholarships for young athletes to train at our performance center. Our goal is to foster their growth, instill the values of dedication and perseverance, and help them accomplish personal achievements as they develop throughout their athletic journey. We're on this mission because we want to witness the excitement of those early wins and special milestones in an athlete's journey. 

Join us in making these moments of greatness possible for the next generation of athletes. Together, we'll shape a brighter future for sports and the young stars who are just beginning to shine.
