The Way We Look At Things

ELEV8 Lacrosse was developed to provide the highest level of instruction for the growing sports of field and box lacrosse. Instruction caters to the next generation of Canadian lacrosse players, providing the opportunity to learn and excel in both disciplines. Our hybrid combination of programming has proven to provide the next generation of lacrosse players with a solid foundation for success.

We are a Calgary based coaching organization founded by Geoff Snider in 2007.  Since its inception, ELEV8 has broadened its scope to include; grassroots implementation, the ELEV8 CLASSROOM Lacrosse Program, elite box lacrosse development, grassroots and elite field lacrosse development, coaching mentorship, as well as NCAA recruiting exposure and guidance for student-athletes and their families.


At the core we value; education, family, commitment, respect, integrity, accountability, and a balanced perspective in sport and community. At the highest level we encourage the evolution and pursuit of every individuals potential to strive for excellence in both a team environment and as citizens in the community. Our passion is to positively affect change in sport, both in culture and positive growth. To achieve this goal we provide girls and boys the opportunity to succeed and fail in a professional, fun, safe, and motivating environment while teaching student-athletes to understand our positive core values as they compete as a team, and mature on the lacrosse floor and field together.

ELEV8 aims to develop and provide the highest level of instruction for the growing sports of field and box lacrosse for Canadian student-athletes.  Lacrosse has given us so much; an opportunity to obtain an excellent education, lifelong friends and a chance to see the world.
