SPIRE Institute & Academy (IA), one of the most unique and comprehensive academic, athletic, personal and career development organizations in the world, recently announced the addition of a new sport to their growing list of core sports offerings: boy’s lacrosse.
To date, core training and development sports at SPIRE include basketball, swimming, track and field and esports. SPIRE’s next core sport will be lacrosse. SPIRE Lacrosse will follow the successful 12-month, multi-program, business model established within the other primary sports on campus. This includes a feature program that will compete at the high school level – the Lacrosse Academy – as well as an annual schedule of lacrosse camps and clinics, youth leagues, and a roster of seasonal lacrosse tournaments and special events to be held on SPIRE’S campus.
“SPIRE has always believed in 100% dedication and total commitment to our students, programs and facilities – including creating the best opportunities for our student athletes,” said Ted Meekma, SPIRE’s Co-managing Director. “Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the U.S., and we are excited to add this sport to our already established programs.”
SPIRE will announce a Head Coach for the lacrosse program within the next week.
Lacrosse experts from the Legendary Sports Group, an Annapolis, MD-based sports event and media company, have been working with SPIRE leadership in the search for the best candidate.
