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.

do Charlie Cipriano he is a incredible goalie he is on the hounds
Thanks for the suggestion. I added Charlie Cipriano. I could only find some older photos of him when he was on the Outlaws. We’ll see if he switches up his stick setup this year when he plays for the Hounds.
Some of these definitely need to be updated as many are inaccurate
Yeah I’d imagine some switch up their gear from when I wrote this article. Which ones do you see as needing updated?
Haha Charlie Cip is my cousin. I can help you with that stick setup changes if you would like I see him all the time
Awesome! Thanks Danny. Definitely would be into that! Next time you see him ask if he’d be cool with me interviewing him for the blog. I’m sure he’s pretty busy so its a long shot but I thought I’d throw it out there to see if it was possible. D
these goalie stick setups need to be updated there way off!
They probably do need to be updated. Which ones are off?
most are of you should check current photos and listen to suggestions like austin is off scott roders, ghitelman etc… i think cipriano is the only accurate one
Jrod is using a nemi 2 now and I believe a krptolyte but it could be a burn pro.
Cool. Thanks for that update Ryan. I’ll get the post updated.
You should add stuff for the new goalies in the league like Parker fairey (GOAT) and blaze riorden
I’m surprised someone used the Maverick base in the pros. I got that head and it just felt awkward, reminded me a lot of the Warrior Zoo I used first starting out. Personally I like the Shield on an attack length Maverick WonderBoy strung with ECD Hero 12D
I doubt they use the Base anymore. I’ve heard nothing but bad things about that head. You like the Shield? Felt too heavy for me. I’m an Eclipse guy (and now an Eclipse II guy).
Ghitelman uses an eclipse II now. Not sure on John Galloway as I believe he said he preferred the flexibility of the eclipse.
Yeah, this post was written a long time ago before the Eclipse II even came out. I’ll have to do another one for the current MLL setups.
Do a current MLL goalie wepon of choice and string
You should do an updated posts of this with all the new goalies in the MLL and the NCAA. It would be interesting to see how many older goalies have switched over to the Eclipse 2. `
