"Coach Damon is an amazing resource for young goalies and parents of goalies.

Too often the youth goalie position is overlooked from a coaching standpoint. I played attack in college and my son decided to play goalie at a very early age. After watching one season, with no goalie coaching, I decided to get involved as a coach but needed to learn the position fundamentals in order to add value. This training became my education on the position enabling me to not only coach my son but other goalies as well. Thank you Coach Damon!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the FAQ's I get regarding the Lax Goalie Rat Academy

What if I can't make the live training sessions?

All replays are available inside the member's area to watch (and rewatch over and over!) anytime and anywhere you want.

Are the sessions available on my cell phone or tablet? 

Yes. Anywhere you can connect to the internet you'll have access to watch the training sessions. Lots of young goalies like to watch them on their phone on the way to the games or practices.

What age group is this for?

This lacrosse goalie training is mostly focused on youth goalies up to the high school level. That said, there are some coaching sessions, specifically those dealing with the mental game that would definitely benefit high school and even college goalies.

Is this for male or female lacrosse goalies?

Both! I'm a strong believer that while the games are different, the way boys and girls goalies make saves is the same. But we also have sessions focused specifically on the boys game and sessions focused specifically on the girls game.

What if I want to cancel my monthly membership?

Cancel anytime you want. On your member's area page there a quick easy way to cancel with just a few clicks. That would take place at the end of your current month.

What if my youth goalie has trouble paying attention to virtual Zoom sessions?

I've done a lot of these virtual coaching sessions and if your goalie is at all in anyway interested in lacrosse the training is pretty catchy and engaging! As you would expect when learning from your goalie idols! Goalie Moms and Dads tell me all the time - I've never seen my kid so engaged...if only I could get him to study for school like this! 

What is the refund policy?

Within the 1st 30 days of joining we offer a no hassle money back guarantee. If the Lax Goalie Rat Academy doesn't provide the value you're looking for, simply let us know and we'll take care of you.

How does this compare to a live lacrosse goalie camp? 

It's supplemental. There is NO substitute for taking shots and doing the drills out on the field. Lacrosse goalie camps are very valuable (most of them!) but the Academy training gives your goalie motivation, inspiration, and the knowledge of what to do once you get out on the field!

Is the Lax Goalie Rat Academy good for coaches? 

Yes! Perfect for coaches (or Goalie Moms or Dads) who want to learn how to train the most important position on the team. Coaches can learn lacrosse goalie techniques, drills and mental game tricks and tips to help out their young goalies.

Does the Academy have a live training element?

Right now the Lax Goalie Rat Academy is 100% virtual. Online virtual coaching to help your lacrosse goalie once they get out onto the field.

Can I just join for 1 month?

Absolutely! It's a monthly membership and you can cancel anytime you want with just a few clicks.

I have another question I don't see listed here...

Just email me - [email protected] - and I'll get your question answered ASAP! 

About Coach Damon

Hey there! I'm Coach Damon, founder of Lax Goalie Rat and lacrosse is my passion. The indigenous people called lacrosse the “medicine game”. And that’s what lacrosse was for me - medicine.

And it was the best medicine there is. It taught me about: teamwork, commitment, mental toughness, fitness, leadership, loss, struggle, friendship, and sudden victory OT dog piles!

I’m also a goalie. I love goalies. I love coaching goalies. It pains me when a young goalie struggles from lack of quality coaching. They say us lacrosse goalies all have a screw loose. I mean, you gotta to do what we do. But I love being a part and helping this screw loose community.

As I sit here writing this I consider it an honor to continue to pass down this knowledge that I’ve gained to the next generation of goalies. And I've gained a ton of knowledge! I'm confident nobody has talked to and worked with more high level pro and college goalies than me, so I've learned a ton that I cannot wait to share with your young goalie inside the Lax Goalie Rat Academy.

See you on the inside!
