About 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.

This podcast is indeed the best one yet. Hearing Mike and Andrew on top of your own content got me wondering if you guys ever considered doing a ‘goalie coach’ clinic? I consume a lot of “player intended” content and I encourage my goalies to attend clinics and camps etc. However, I am always worried that when they come back I am going to undo some individual correction or improvement that they received. Some of us lower level coaches are very interested in getting better for our players as well as our future players. My personal take is that you guys interact with and coach a lot more goalies than an individual team coach does. As such you guys get to try corrections a lot quicker and see what yields results across more goalies. Every player is different and I would love a way to tap into this growing “goalie consultant” layer as a coach. BTW- I love the book and find it very valuable as a reference. I’ve been coaching in one sport or another for the last 30 years and there is nothing better than seeing a player execute a skill and realize they have it. Thank you so much for your content and sharing your expertise with not only the players but us coaches as well.
I just finished off my season, I was nominated for my leagues all star game but didn’t make it due to our teams standings. During the off season I want work as hard as I can to fix all the mistakes I’ve made and hopefully one day be as good as these goalies in your podcasts. Any suggestions would be helpful to me for workouts.
