Background

The Athlete Institute Academy’s (ODSS) mission is to provide exceptional, educational opportunities as well as state of the art basketball development for high school student athletes looking to make their passion for basketball a reality at the next level.

Athlete Institute Academy and Orangeville Prep are scholastic programs that prepare high school student athletes for competition at the postsecondary level. Through our formal affiliation with Orangeville District Secondary School (ODSS) all student athletes attend Orangeville District Secondary School (ODSS) on a full time basis. Athlete Institute players all live in the Orangeville community, in state of the art dorms and are actively involved in the community.

Athlete Institute/Orangeville Prep play tournaments and exhibition games all over North America.  Our program emphasizes the development of versatility in our members with focus on education, individual skills, strength & conditioning, nutrition, and game play, to ensure a seamless transition to higher educational programs and eliminate “freshman learning curves”.
