A Player's Coach
Coach Spencer Berry's Story
Coach Berry has been tied to the game of basketball since he could walk. With his family having Lakers season tickets his entire life, Spencer’s earliest memories included getting to shoot hoops and play with family and friends at the Great Western Forum.
His passion for the game runs deep. He participated in local camps and played for AAU teams his whole life. He attended Nipomo High School and was part of the school’s first-ever CIF appearance.
His father, Steve Berry, created one of the very first travel teams in the area. Following in his father’s footsteps is his #1 goal.
He played a short while at Allan Hancock College before transferring to Palomar College to play basketball and finish his junior college studies. Coach Berry then transferred to to Cal State Northridge, where he earned his Bachelors degree.
While focusing on his athletics and education, Coach Berry volunteered as an assistant coach at Elsinore High School at the freshman and varsity levels. Once he graduated, he knew right away that he wanted to pass on his love for the game by helping develop players’ overall games throughout the Central Coast, a place he loves to call home.
