Lacrosse is my passion and coaching goalies is honestly what I love the most. I grew frustrated talking to goalies who had the burning fire to get better but lacked the necessary coaching to really advance their game to the next level. So I've put together this goalie training academy to:
The Lax Goalie Rat Academy is the leading lacrosse goalie training community.
And it’s packed with in-depth, practical training and resources on all aspects of the position, the game, and being a leader of your team. It's more than a goalie camp, it's an academy!

Hi, I'm Coach Damon - creator of Lax Goalie Rat- and I've spent years guiding the growth of hundreds of lacrosse goalies and coaches both via live and virtual training.
With 15+ years of lacrosse goalie coaching experience I have a proven track record of building up goalies from the ground up. I've also worked with tons of coaches and parents providing them with the tools they need to create dynamite lacrosse goalies.
In 2017 I decided to take all of that knowledge and experience and use it to help parents, coaches, and goalies just like you to achieve success with the best position in all of sports - lacrosse goalie. And so the Lax Goalie Rat Academy was created. My favorite part of my day is interacting with the goalies inside the Academy and helping them get better.
As seen on:
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's material was a tremendous help in preparing me for college lacrosse. Thank you for everything. I trained using the concepts and drills found in your lacrosse goalie camp and I played very well in the fall thanks to a lot of your tips. Going to keep re-watching every chance I get. This is the best lacrosse goalie camp out there for sure. Just wanted to reach out to say thanks for everything that you do with Lax Goalie Rat and for the lax goalie community.
The goalie content been a HUGE help for me. I took on the responsibility of coaching the 2 goalies on my son's 2024 club team. I was a middie so my only knowledge was "shoot it where he ain't". Everyone thinks I'm doing such a great job and all I'm doing is the drills and coaching from your camp! I've given you credit on social media and in my e-mails to the other coaches. I really love how to break down the position of lacrosse goalie in simple, easy to understand principles.
The videos are absolutely phenomenal. These videos give me the ability (non-goalie training dad) to train my son. The videos are clear and concise. The videos are perfect in length, not too long. I have to be honest, I never really knew of how many different drills there actually are to train a lacrosse goalie. Coach Damon has an excellent attitude and demeanor throughout all the camp! Love it.
I already give your online camp an A+ for value, and have seen a noticeable improvement in my son's mental toughness and body language on the field. I am really looking forward to seeing similar improvements in footwork, and lower body positioning once he gets a chance to tackle that portion of the material, as I think that is currently the area of his game that he has the most room for improvement on. Thank you for taking the time to put together this material.

I've teamed up with Argentina Lacrosse and a portion of EVERY sale of this lacrosse goalie camp is going to be donated to help fund the growth of lacrosse in Latin America.
I recently made a trip my wife's hometown of Córdoba, Argentina and put on a lacrosse clinic in addition to donating a bunch of sticks and balls with the proceeds from this camp.
Lacrosse gear (sticks, helmets, gloves, pads) is the biggest need right now as its extremely hard to buy (and expensive) in Argentina. If you have extra gear to donate, please email me: [email protected].
Give yourself the gift of improving your lacrosse goalie game AND the gift of lacrosse to those less fortunate. We've already donated lots of sticks, balls, equipment and coaching but they need more! On behalf of the (hopefully) thousands who will be impacted by your contribution, MUCHAS GRACIAS!
