BOYS PROGRAM STRUCTURE

On-floor sessions are divided by gender and into Elite and Developmental groups to best provide student-athletes with the environment for individual success. 

The Elite group is designated for student-athletes who have previously played “A” box-level lacrosse. The Developmental Group is designated for student-athletes who have yet to play “A” box-level lacrosse. 

This very focused program is for committed lacrosse players and student-athletes motivated to continue their development in pursuit of their lacrosse, academic, and personal goals.

GIRLS HYBRID PROGRAM STRUCTURE

ELEV8 Lacrosse takes a unique and pioneering approach to girls’ lacrosse development.  As the sport of girls lacrosse grows, including the box lacrosse and field lacrosse disciplines within development is essential. 

Female Winter Training participants will be coached in a box lacrosse environment, with box lacrosse systems, theory, and strategy while using field lacrosse equipment and modified rules for competitive settings. 

We are excited about this new direction, which will give female players the opportunity to develop in an environment unique to their discipline while using their field lacrosse equipment and preserving the box lacrosse characteristics that make Canadians the best lacrosse players in the world. 

 

This direction within our development model will teach box lacrosse theory and systems while significantly increasing stick skill development by utilizing girls’ field lacrosse sticks.

ELITE BOX TRAVEL TEAMS

Teams will compete at the USBOXLA Winter National Tournament 2025 in Los Angeles, California. Student-athletes will be coached by current and former professional National Lacrosse League box players. Elite Box Travel Team training is fast, physical, and intense, helping you develop into a complete two-way player.
