You want your lacrosse goalie to develop, right? Pretty sure the answer is yes or else you wouldn’t be here.
Well, unfortunately for the youth goalies out there, some lacrosse coaches are unknowingly hurting the development of their lacrosse goalie.
It’s not on purpose of course. Coaching a youth team is hard, especially when you have little experience in lacrosse or coaching youth.
Even if you have lacrosse and coaching experience, managing all the different elements can get tricky and often times the lax goalies are the first to be neglected. That’s unfortunate because in this goalie coach’s biased opinion, goalies are the most important position on the field.
Why neglect your most important position?
In this podcast I go over a list of 12 ways that lacrosse goalie development is stunted.
No guest, no interview. Just you and me for 30 minutes talking about how not to stunt your goalie’s growth. Let’s do it.
Think of this as a NOT to do list when working with your goalie. When planning your practices refer to this list to make sure you’re not doing any of these things.

Lacrosse is my passion! The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Specifically the most bad a$$ part of that community - the goalies! After learning to play goalie from scratch, I wanted to create a site where I could share what I learned with others so they too can become champions in the crease and in life.
