ELEV8 WINTER TRAINING
The ELEV8 Lacrosse Winter Training is a focused program, providing the highest level of indoor lacrosse instruction and dry-land training in North America. The goal of the program is to maximize skill development, character development, and establish goal setting practices to best prepare male and female lacrosse players to make the jump to the next level; ultimately becoming better athletes, competitors, and citizens.
Professional NLL players exclusively lead ELEV8 WT instruction from the Calgary Roughnecks, Vancouver Warriors, Saskatchewan Rush, and Colorado Mammoth. The high-level coaches work directly with student-athletes through the carefully-designed ELEV8 Lacrosse curriculum, directed by two-time NLL All-star MVP Geoff Snider, to challenge all skill levels.
HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING
Optional high performance dryland programming is administered by WinSport strength coaches utilizing program direction from the Canadian Sport Institute and Olympic Strength Coaches and program directors.

BOYS PROGRAM STRUCTURE
On-floor sessions are divided by gender and into Elite and Developmental groups to best provide student-athletes with the environment to succeed as an individual.
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 whom are motivated to continue their development in pursuit of their lacrosse, academic, and personal goals.
WHAT TO BRING
GIRLS HYBRID PROGRAM STRUCTURE
ELEV8 Lacrosse takes a unique and pioneering approach to girls lacrosse development. As the sport of girls lacrosse grows, it is important to include the box lacrosse and field lacrosse disciplines within development.
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, giving 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 which 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 with the utilization of girls field lacrosse sticks.

The ELEV8 WT 2021 Safety Plan will outline the measures we are taking to create as safe an environment as possible for all participating student-athletes.
