GENEVA, Oh. – SPIRE Institute & Academy, one of the most unique and comprehensive academic, athletic, personal and career development organizations in the world, announced Tuesday the addition of a new sport to their growing list of core sports offerings: lacrosse.

Constructed on over 500 acres with 750,000 sq. ft. under roof, SPIRE is among the largest indoor multi-sport, training, education and competition complexes in North America. In addition to elite facilities, SPIRE combines passion-based training and innovative education with a commitment to maximizing personal and career development, creating an environment where high school and post-graduate student athletes thrive in school and sport, while preparing to excel in work and life itself.

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, training and education programs, events and facilities – including creating exciting, new 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 and a full calendar of lacrosse activity to our already established programs.”

To lead this charge, SPIRE is seeking a Head Coach/Director of Lacrosse to join their growing team. This individual will build and run the boy’s high school and post graduate lacrosse academy team. This position will focus on the recruitment of student athletes, the technical and tactical development of the lacrosse player, the physical and mental conditioning of the lacrosse athlete, the management of the competitive team, and the development of its young men into strong, confident, self-assured individuals, both on and off the field.

Lacrosse experts from Legendary Sports Group, an Annapolis, MD-based sports event and media company, will be helping to lead the search for the best candidate. To apply, please submit résumé, cover letter and references to Nicole Parker, SPIRE’s Director of Human Resources at
