In 1992 ELEV8 President Geoff Snider was introduced to the sport of Lacrosse at Captain John Palliser Elementary School in his 5th grade gym class taught by Mrs. Grant. At that moment Geoff fell in love with the sport of Lacrosse and registered in the Crowchild Lacrosse Association the following Spring. This introduction to the sport initiated a very dynamic athletic career contrasting both lacrosse and hockey as Geoff grew up. Following suit was younger brother and ELEV8 VP of Operations and Player Development, Bob Snider. Together they have combined for 5 Minto Cups, 1 MLL Title, 2 World Championships, and the creation and growth of Canada's leading lacrosse development company.
Classroom Lacrosse was founded and cultivated by Andrew McBride, a 13 year NLL Veteran, and Former six-year Captain of the Calgary Roughnecks. Classroom Lacrosse will allow students to experience the fast paced and unique game of lacrosse in an intimate, educational, and competitive setting.
The Classroom Lacrosse program introduces the sport of lacrosse to students while educating them on the history of the sport in Canada and North America.
We teach and demonstrate the basic skills of lacrosse in a fun, energizing and engaging environment. Our qualified coaching staff whom have NCAA, NLL, MLL, and International playing and coaching experience from the Calgary Roughnecks and Saskatchewan Rush are passionate and supportive mentors.
