"Goalie is the hardest position in lacrosse without a doubt. A team's success is highly dependent on the play of the goalie, and when you're having a bad day everyone can see it. It is a highly technical position, and it is also highly under coached at the youth and high school levels.
All this being said, it can be the most fun position in all of sports! There is nothing like making a game-winning save in the last seconds and getting swarmed by your teammates. The difference from being just another goalie to being a game-changer makes the sport more fun, plain and simple.
The number one factor in going from the former to the latter for myself was seeking individual instruction in the offseason. It changed the way I saw the position and made it so much more enjoyable. My objective with these sessions is to give the same experience to aspiring young goalies who want to get better and are willing to put in the time to do so."

Whether you are still working on the fundamentals or are ready to take your game to the next level, our coaches are ready to cater to your needs as an individual goalie. Every goalie has their own personal strengths and weaknesses, and being able to identify them and then improve is the key to becoming a great goalie. We focus on all aspects of playing goalie, from saving technique and mental preparation to clearing the ball and communication.
Every successful goalie has learned and picked up different tendencies from their coaches, teammates and opponents. We understand that not every goalie is the same and what works for some may not be the same for others. Whether you like to use your body and play the angles, or you are athletic and attack the ball, there is always room to improve and adapt your play style. Our coaches will work with you to find which techniques will help you become the best goalie that you are capable of being.
Training with a goalie coach is just the beginning. Our coaches will teach you all types of drills that you can work on every day, on your own time. Your success can only go as far as the work you put in, and learning which goalie-specific drills you can implement in your daily routine will make a huge difference.
