Summer #32 is in the books. The rain held off and we had a great finish. Coaches presented teams with their written evaluations and Most Improved Player Awards. Thank you to all the families for trusting us to teach your sons how to grow as lacrosse players and young men. Have a safe rest of summer and a great start to the school year.


Big winners at tonight’s raffle!


Great ball movement here after dinner!


The future of @OOHSLacrosse is a 🧱 wall! Really ruining confidence of the shooters tonight!


‪Coach Sraver from @DenisonLacrosse Coach Berner from @SellsAthletics and Coach Lute from @BWmenslacrosse demoing inside finishing on the box goals. Tennis balls help save the goalies and teach soft hands. ‬


We are underway. 225 campers! Up from 107 last year for session 2. Staff has 10 high school, middle school, and college coaches and over 20 current college players. Proud to #growthegame


@fischer._son was the winner of the @nike CEO custom strung head. Thanks to our friends @the_laxshop_oh for donating and always supporting local lax. More great giveaways and great lacrosse to come in session 2. We’re already over 200 campers! Big time growth!


@noahdodgion2 won the flag this year. Thanks @ecdlax for everything you do to support us and grow the game the right way. Great Raffle!


More finishing




Lots of good finishing tonight


Coach Stew setting up speed lacrosse for the young guys. Focuses on maximum touches, constant unsettled situations, and soft hands for stickwork. Older guys starting 7v7 games.


‪Coach Billy Wolford and @nickharris337 teaching two man games. Picks and slips. The Godfather of @KilbourneLax is always teaching with the women’s stick to promote fundamentals and looking in the catch‬


‪Happy Father’s Day from our family to yours. See everyone tomorrow for the start of our 32nd summer! Had to borrow the greatest Father/Son lacrosse photo in history from our friend @CoachRiff Enjoy the day dads!‬


‪Lacrosse Academy is an opportunity to learn from one of the most dedicated coaches, husbands, and dads I’ve ever met. Coach Stew does it the right way. He relates as well with beginners as he does with All Americans and shows the guys how to love the game! @TheLaxShopOHIO ‬


‪Got a great addition to Coach Stew’s goalie compound this year with @CapMensLax @Braves_Lacrosse and 2019 All Ohio Honorable Mention Goalie Sam McInturf. ‬


‪Really excited and fortunate to have @SMFSchools @SMFSports Head Coach Carl Dyer back with us for year two. No one exemplifies appreciation while being a true gentleman and family man first. Great teacher and 100% dedicated to growing the game the right way. Keep building! ‬


‪Very excited to have Max Weese from @ONUMLAX and @Darby_Lacrosse joining the staff this year. Max was all OCC and All Ohio in high school, and finished his ONU career with 111 goals! Great off ball player who will teach the campers how to get open inside and finish! ‬


‪Back with us for year 2 on staff is All-MAAC Rookie Team @UDMLAX @HDHSLAX Attackman @AJVanVoorhis Glad to have AJ’s energy and lacrosse IQ with us and helping the young players learn new play making skills. ‬


‪Today we highlight @coffmanlacrosse @DenisonLacrosse teammates Cam Bowdy and Ethan Tyack. Playing together for over 10 years and now coaching together. They combine for 277 assists, 4 1st team all Ohio, an Academic All American and a USILA All American. Elite vision and Lax IQ. ‬


Today we highlight one of our most important coaches. 2019 State Champion, Coach Matt Berner. Coach has been with us for 20 summers as the commissioner of Division 2 (younger players). He’s one of the best teachers I have ever seen because he’s always energetic and positive, while making sure the lessons on the field are about more than lacrosse. Coach Berner helps the players get better on the field but reinforces the character needed to be a good student and person off of it too! Congrats 2019 Dublin Sells MS!


‪Back with us for the 4th year is Canfield High School Head Coach Gordie Byrne. Major Byrne US Army, Retired, played at VMI and is also a licensed doctor. There is no one better to teach your sons service to others and being the best version of yourself on and off the field! ‬


‪Now that we are 2 weeks from camp we want to highlight some of our awesome 2019 staff. Starting with 2x 1st Team All Midwest Goalie from @TheKiskiSchool and current @DenisonLacrosse sophomore TJ Spahn! Excellent positioning, and even better attitude and toughness in cage!‬


‪Congratulations to another 2 former staff members @LaxcoachMike and @bpggrady on being 1-0 with the @PLLWhipsnakes ! Proud to see so many great teachers of the game at the highest level! Come get coached by the best! ‬


Congrats @pll coaches and former Lacrosse Academy staffers @nat.stlaurent and @dom_marzano10 on being 1-0 with the Redwoods! Great to have Ohio well represented at the highest level! @onu_mlax @capmenslax should be proud to have such great mentors and teachers of the game for their young men!


Over the last 8 years, more future @coffmanlacrosse and @MariemontLax players have come to camp than any other programs. No coincidence that both are playing for a state championship on Saturday! Fundamentals and dedication to getting better = championships in May!

We’re setting a 5 year best for our July session, but still have many spots open for June and a great staff confirmed for camp! Register today!


Lacrosse camps... how they help players improve. -


Really fired up to have two former campers, 1st team All Ohioans, and future high level collegiate players joining the staff for session 1 this year. Friday night is a great chance to experience lacrosse in Columbus. @DJCeltic_Lax at @coffmanlacrosse winner goes to the Final 4! Lots of alums on the field in this one!

Rory from @hilliard_bradley_hs put his long stick down to show the attack how to fake and finish strong!

Ready! Ready! Ready!
Great morning! Tennis Ball box finishing. Soft hands, cuts, snap from the ear!
The Lacrosse Academy loves to teach the game and we love to help instill values that lead to successful lives. One thing...
You haven't really experienced The Lacrosse Academy until you've heard Coach Douglas Bartlett's "Ready, ready, ready..."...
