Goalie Kris Alleyne played his college ball at Rutgers University from 2013-16, earning 2013 BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Year and First Team All-BIG EAST honors as a freshman.
During his 4 years with the Scarlet Knights, Alleyne appeared in 53 contests, posting a 10.40 goals against average and .522 save percentage, and recording 545 saves, the fifth most in school history.
After Rutgers, Kris took his talents to the MLL where he was a 2016 seventh-round draft pick of the Rochester Rattlers and also spent time with the Hammerheads.
In addition to his collegiate coaching experience, Alleyne serves as the director of the Goalie Factory, an organization that looks to “develop next-level lacrosse goalies through emphasis on proper fundamentals.” Alleyne also spent time as an assistant coach for the Puerto Rican National Team (2018-20), helping the team finish eighth at the 2018 FIL World Championships in Israel as a first-year nation.
As Kris mentions in the interview, lacrosse has given him so much in terms of education, lifelong relationships, travel and now it’s his turn to give back as much as possible for the next generation of goalies and athletes. To that end he put together this amazing backyard video training series that I linked up to down below.
I prefer to keep the conversations on this podcast mostly focused on lacrosse goalie stuff but we do touch on what it means to him to be a black athlete in lacrosse, especially a black goalie since there are so few.
Pretty impressive resume as a goalie and a coach. Enjoy this conversation with a great goalie and a great guy – Coach Kris Alleyne.
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.
