I remember about 10 years ago searching YouTube looking for every single lacrosse goalie training video I could find.
I came across this one from IMG Academy featuring one Marty Ward:
I didn’t know who Marty Ward was at the time but this video series was pretty good. Very well explained and covered the basics of the position perfectly.
Fast forward 10 years and now Marty Ward joins me on the Lax Goalie Rat podcast to discuss his lacrosse goalie career. And oh yeah, I definitely know who he is now.
He spent several World Games playing with the Iroquois national team including 2006 when he was the starting goalie. He’s currently the head coach at Florida Southern D2 program and has been doing that for 11 years!
Prior to joining Florida Southern, Ward was a standout goalkeeper at Division II powerhouse Limestone College, where he helped lead the Saints to a record of 55-9 in his four years. Ward was a two-time team captain and three-time all-conference selection at Limestone.
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. Learn more about Coach Damon.
