Lax Goalie Bible Now In Print Format!
I’m proud to announce The Lax Goalie Bible is now available in print, paperback format.
When I first released the ebook back in March many folks wanted to know when the physical copy of the book would be available. It’s now available!

Self-Publishing The Book
Turning an ebook into a physical book was a surprisingly difficult task. I’m sure regular publishers do it with ease but for me, it was tricky.
First was the task of finding a printing and drop shipping service.
Lots of places would print your book for you but minimum order was 100 books or so. Keeping an inventory of my books was just not something I wanted to do. With the large inventory I would have to manage all the orders and shipping which takes time away from what I really love – coaching goalies. Plus me managing all orders is a recipe for mistakes and unhappy customers.
So I needed a book printer / drop shipper to handle my needs.
After extensive search the options seemed slim but I ended up going with Blurb.com but I had to reformat my entire book to fit one of their standard sizes. That was a ton of work.
I would love to say the book is fresh off the printers but I actually only own a few copies. I’m printing the books on-demand as you order them.
The end result is that the books look great. 130 pages with color photos to demonstrate all the drills and the teaching points in the book.
However because I’m just printing the book on-demand, it’s a lot more expensive than I’d like it to be. It also takes about 1-2 weeks from time of order until it’s at your door because they need to make the book before it’s shipped.
If anyone knows of another on-demand book printing and drop shipping service, please reach out to me ([email protected]).
Even if you already have the ebook, it’s worth getting a copy of the physical book. You can write notes in it, take it to the field, and hold it in your precious little hands.
There’s even a few blank pages at the end to jot more notes.
You can order a print copy here – Lacrosse Goalie Book. Be sure to select the Physical book button.
If you do decide to order a copy of the book, thanks in advance for the support!
