Clippers To Make Training Facility Change

Posted: November 15th, 2004

The Clippers today announced a multi-year partnership with Spectrum Clubs Inc. and will begin utilizing Spectrum Club South Bay as its official training site, effective November 19. No terms were disclosed.

”This is a great opportunity for us, and moves us closer to our goal of providing our players and staff the highest quality resources to enhance our training and talent development programs,” said Clippers’ Executive Vice President Andy Roeser.

Clippers’ Head Coach Mike Dunleavy said, “We’re really excited about the move. It should greatly improve our on-court performance, given the full range of features we’ll have access to.”

Spectrum Clubs Inc. operates ten clubs in Southern California, as well as ten clubs in San Antonio, Texas. Spectrum Club South Bay is located at 2250 Park Place in El Segundo, CA. The Clippers will have full access to the club’s newly-remodeled basketball court, as well as athletic training, weight-lifting, aerobic and locker room facilities within the 100,000 square foot complex.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Clippers organization to our facility and look forward to providing first-class service to their players and staff”, stated Spectrum Inc. President and CEO Matthew Stevens.

The Clippers have practiced at Los Angeles Southwest College for the past five years.

“We have enjoyed our very productive time at L.A. Southwest College, and appreciate how helpful everyone there has been, especially President Audre Levy and Coach Henry Washington. This move is taking place because we have been presented with a chance to make significant progress in a key area of our operation,” concluded Roeser.
