Elite Training Camp Set to Showcase SPIRE Academy’s Lacrosse Program


From May 20–21, SPIRE Academy is conducting their first 2023 lacrosse training camp on campus in Geneva, OH. Director and Head Coach JD Harkey and Assistant Coach Nakeie Montgomery will work with athletes throughout the weekend, with former professional lacrosse player, and SPIRE Sport Ambassador Kyle Harrison joining the group on Sunday. While this specific camp is invite-only, future camps will be open to any and all who register.

High school athletes from across the country will be attending to get a taste of what the Academy’s lacrosse program has to offer. From performance and on-field training to mental skills development, this camp is set to hone these athletes’ abilities and give them building blocks for continued growth in their sport.

On the first day, the camp will involve an afternoon training session that includes individual technique development and tactical awareness of when to employ those skills. That evening, participants will watch one of the ongoing NCAA quarterfinal games in a casual chalk-talk setting. Throughout the day, Harkey and Montgomery will include mindfulness training and IQ development to offer a glimpse into the Mental Skills program offered at SPIRE.

Partcipants will stay overnight at the campus’ top-notch dormitory facilities to have them ready for the next morning’s physical training session. In total, the athletes who attend will receive about six hours of lacrosse training focused on technique and details, athletic performance training with staff, and a range of mental skills training incorporating both lacrosse-specific tactics and broad resilience development.

This camp is intended to demonstrate the immense value of the holistic lacrosse program at SPIRE. In addition to the upcoming training camp, organizers have planned a three-day overnight camp for late July. The July camp will be very similar to the May training camp, but will include longer sessions and an additional day allowing for a more in-depth athlete experience.

The invite-only lacrosse training camp promises to be an exciting and constructive event for the participants, and SPIRE plans to expand their camp offerings throughout 2023.
