Student Program for Academic & Athletic Transitioning

What is SPAAT?

The Student Program for Academic & Athletic Transitioning (SPAAT) is a non-profit organization that empowers socially and economically disadvantaged high school student-athletes by providing them with academic, community and athletic support services to increase the number of student-athletes prepared for college, careers and life after sports.


SPAAT's in-school model currently serves over 30 student athletes in Oakland (130 at McClymonds HS) and has a proven track record of success with 100% of student athletes graduating from high school and 84% graduating college ready (completion of the A-G requirements). SPAAT serves as the organized support system that bridges the gap many student-athletes face in making the leap from high school to college.
