These lacrosse goalie camps take place around the United States so if you’re located in the US you should be able to find a camp near you.
If those 3 camps are not in a location where you live, trying Googling “Lacrosse Goalie Camp + Your city (or state)” and see if any closer options are available.
After attending a lacrosse goalie camp you can take what you’ve learned into the season and continue to improve your game in the absence of a dedicated lacrosse goalie coach.
Before attending these camps, its a good idea to understand what part of your game needs improvement. Then you take that specific plan into camp and ensure you get coaching feedback to improve that area.
Establish Your Support System
In addition to teaching goalies how to make saves, one role of a lacrosse goalie coach is to be a cheerleader.
This is a tough position and often lacrosse goalies need encouragement.
They need someone who goes crazy on the sideline when they make a big save. And they need someone to tell them to keep their head up and move on when they let in an easy goal.
In the absence of a lacrosse goalie coach, try to ensure you still have this support system. This most likely will come from parents if your goalie is a youth.
But it could also come from teammates, from friends, or from the head coach.
Regardless of where this encouragement does come from, its extremely important to have in the development our lacrosse goalie careers.
Even if you are without a lacrosse goalie coach its still possible to reach your full potential as a goalie.
You must however take the responsibility into your own hands.
These means planning your development, analyzing your play via video, attending a lacrosse goalie camp, and setting up a support system to keep you going strong.
I wish every lacrosse goalie could get the best coaching but unfortunately that’s just not realistic. In the meantime, hopefully this article helps you develop your game without a goalie coach.
Until next time! Coach Damon

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.
