Bottom Hand Technique With Coach Ted Bergman – LGR Podcast 46


During his college days at Wesleyan University Ted Bergman was one of the top goalies in the league earning the accolade of goalie of the year –  the Ensign C. Markland Kelly, Jr. Award.

He’s now puts all his goalie knowledge to work coaching the goalies at Cleveland St.

Coming up on my 20th anniversary since I switched to the goalie position and it amazes that I still learn new things. And Ted is responsible for that.

In this amazing episode we break down the goalie position and discuss his approach to teaching the elite lacrosse goalie triad.

Among the topics covered:

  • Pre game routine
  • Post goal routine
  • Hip Flexibility and Strength
  • Yoga
  • Bottom hand save technique
  • Finish w/ a horizontal stick
  • Use two hands on the drills
  • Coaching overseas
  • The bottom hand save technique which I first heard of when Ted gave a great webinar at Jamie Munro Lacrosse Virtual Summit.
