Introducing Team Lax Goalie Rat

Last time I ran the Lacrosse Goalie Summit in March we doubled the number the participants!

That growth was amazing and it blows my mind we were able to reach so many goalies, lacrosse goalie Moms/Dads, and lacrosse coaches in desperate need of some high quality (and free) lacrosse goalie coaching.

But at a certain point the number of questions and emails I was getting became a little too much.

Apart from all the amazing goalie tips the coaches delivered, my main takeaway from the Lacrosse Goalie Summit 3 (from a business standpoint) – I need some help!

So before this upcoming Lacrosse Goalie Summit 4 (you’re registered, right?) I sent out an email to everyone on my list seeing if there were any youth goalies interested in doing an internship with Lax Goalie Rat this Summer.

The response was amazing. Thank you to everyone who applied. I wish I could have taken you all!

Ladies and gentleman, please allow me to introduce Team Lax Goalie Rat!

If you send in a question, comment, issue don’t be surprised if you see one of these names answering you.
