Coach Damon is a great ambassador for our position and our sport! Really glad to have someone like him who is committed to developing the knowledge base for lacrosse goalies all over the world!
Coach Damon is an amazing resource for young lacrosse goalies and parents of goalies. Too often the youth goalie position is overlooked from a coaching standpoint. My son decided to play goalie at a very early age. After watching one season, with no goalie coaching, I decided to get involved as a coach but needed to learn the position fundamentals in order to add value. This training became my education on the position enabling me to not only coach my son but other goalies as well. Thank you Coach Damon!
I wasn't always the Lax Goalie Rat. I actually started my lacrosse career as a middie.
But 5 games into our season, our backup goalie tore his ACL and MCL in a gruesome injury - I still remember his horrible scream.
Suddenly our team was down to just one goalie.
When our coach asked me to give goalie a try, I thought how hard could be?
Spoiler alert - it's hard!
I had all the common problems you see in beginner goalies:
Our team didn't have a lacrosse goalie coach so I went searching for coaching materials online and at that time, nothing existed!
I finally found a lacrosse goalie coaching book and it had stick figures to demonstrate proper save technique:
So I attended live goalie camps...
And practiced and trained...
I studied all the top lacrosse goalies...
And practiced and trained some more!
And by my Senior year I was an All-American goalie and a team captain after knowing nothing about the position just 4 years earlier!
I've been through the transformation from a nervous beginner to a confident goalie and a leader of team.
And I want the same for you!
Lacrosse is my passion and I love coaching goalies!
I've now been coaching lacrosse goalies since 2003, have worked with hundreds of youth goalies at all levels and along side top professional keepers. I know what works!
If you’re serious about becoming a great goalie I've got the system that can transform you.
