Camp Experience

A one-of-a-kind lacrosse experience set over 4 days at the world class campus of Spire Academy in Geneva, Ohio, Campers will utilize dorms, dining facilities, as well as all athletic facilities. Method 18 strives to foster a focused environment where rising 7th, 8th, and 9th grade athletes will leave with a deeper understanding of playing lacrosse at a competitive level. 


Method 18 is broken in 4 days/phases. The larger focus for each day by the staff is encouraging players to be leaders, good teammates, and detail oriented lacrosse players. 


Day 1 Focus

Players arrive on campus & move into dorms. On field sessions begin mid day with stickwork, and small sided games for players to settle in and coaches have an opportunity to evaluate. Coaches will be evaluating players on technical ability and IQ but a larger emphasis will be identifying intangibles (toughness, focus, coachability, sportsmanship, & leadership). Coaches will complete draft at the end of Day 1 to create two (2) 20 player teams per grad year.


Day 2 Focus

As players settle into camp, day 2 is all about individual development. Players are broken up by position and then into smaller cohorts with their positional group. Sessions are all about skill development and sharpening the skills that are essential for each position group. Shooting, dodging for attackman and midfielders, footwork and stick handling for poles, and goalie specific training. In addition players will participate in strength & conditioning, speed & agility, and mental conditioning sessions with their positional group.


Day 3 Focus

Players will start the morning off with their team at breakfast. From breakfast on field sessions will be team focused, sessions will function much like practices covering (rides, clears, offensive ideas, defensive concepts, etc). These practices will be reinforced with each team participating in classroom sessions, film sessions, & mental skills work by the Spire Academy staff. Teams will continue with strength & conditioning work as well as small sided competition.


Day 4 Focus

A continuation of competition with two back to back games for each team. Games will utilize college level referees, shot clocks, start/stop time, and four (4) 12 minute quarters. Coaches and teams will have opportunities to review and regroup between games, make adjustments, etc.



Event Experience

Method 18 is all about the experience. The goal is to provide exposure to the rigors of the high school game to the most focused youth lacrosse players around. A player's experience is broken down into a couple phases below that differentiate Method 18.

Facilities Experience
