ELEV8 WINTER TRAINING

ELEV8 Lacrosse Winter Training is a focused, four-month 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.  

TRAINING FOCUS

ELEV8 Lacrosse’s high-level professional, NLL, NCAA and World Lacrosse trained coaches work with student-athletes of all abilities through a focused, comprehensive and distinct ELEV8 curriculum. The curriculum includes high-paced, high-energy drills in a game-like tempo.

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.

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.

HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING

Optional high performance programming is administered by WinSport strength coaches utilizing program direction from the Canadian Sport Institute and Olympic Strength Coaches and program directors.  Student-athletes are challenged to learn, develop, and grow under the most diverse strength coaching model in the best training facility in Canada.  

Each high performance group will train two days per week in a very focused and intense training environment.  This environment will focus on developing elite level training habits, a commitment to athletic development, mechanical development, and athletic training accountability.  

All sessions will take place in the most technologically advanced training environment in Canada with Olympic level guidance, instruction, and leadership.
