Caylee Waters is one of the top female goalies in the game. Just have a look at these accolades:

  • #1 Draft Pick with the WPLL Philly Fire
  • Former member of Team USA including being the youngest member during 2016-2017

Caylee Waters has stared in goal for UNC, Team USA, and Philly Fire. In this podcast with Caylee we discuss her approach to the lacrosse goalie position. How she trains and mentally prepares to stop shots.

She split time with Megan Ward at UNC and we discuss that unique situation and how she used it to her advantage.

As one of the top female goalies in the world, we discuss her approach to mental toughness and also to leadership when inside that crease.

  1. Very good podcast! But I also have a question. I’m an 8th-grade goalie and whenever someone takes a shot down low from far away, I sometimes get my body in front but am always late to put my stick down. I don’t get why I keep doing this because I have been playing goalie for almost 6 years now. If you have any tips, it would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Thanks Doi! Whenever a goalie has a problem with technique on a specific type of shot, here’s what I do. Start with 25% speed – 40 shots, 50% speed 40 shots, 75% 40 shots, 100% speed 40 shots. Every save is with perfect technique and by building up the speed you’re training the muscle memory into your body so your hands and body gets to the shot. HOpe that helps!
