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.

I always love seeing former players still rocking it…Had the pleasure of coaching John Galloway way back when he was in 8th grade…knew back then we was going to be good! Just wish I had cable to check out some live games though I have seen some of the videos online.
Hey Dave! That’s awesome. What did you see in him at that young age that you knew he’d be that good?
I don’t have cable either but I purchased the NBC sports PLL streaming package (it’s like $35) so I watch them on my computer.
The PLL did a goalie highlight edit on Instagram. Nice to see that.
Yeah 1st one I’ve seen. All game highlights were just the goals.
Loving the PLL. Game pace is highly entertaining for TV.
Love the fact the refs are letting it get real physical too. That allows the defense to have much bigger impact.
Most of the goalies have been really really good. I was wondering if the yellow ball helped a little with that?
Now if they can keep getting more and more butts in the seats and eyes on the broadcast this could explode.
Yeah I’m also loving it.
I think good goalie play has more to do with the 52 second shot clock. Don’t give the offense as much time to get the perfect look.
Interestingly enough according to rules if both coaches agree colored lax balls can used in the college game too.
Hi, i know that this is not exactly about this specific article, although i do love how these pll goalies are looking, especially the one on Chaos. He had some amazing saves at close range.
I am a player who is transitioning to goalie, and i want to take some 1 on 1 lessons to get on the right track. I live in southern california, and since laxgoalierat is based in northern california, I was wondering if you knew of any people down south in the Long Beach area (if you know where that is; if you dont, its in the LA area) who are goalie coaches. Thank you.
Hey Noah! Yeah checkout Crease Coach – https://www.creasecoach.com – Had Johnny Rodriguez on the podcast. He’s based in SoCal.
What’s interesting to me is the split of the stringing setups. Although they’re all using the same head, there’s an even split between two U’s and two/three straight shooting laces. I’m always curious why a particular goalie prefers one over the other.
The more I watch the PLL – the more I think U’s are the way to go. Check out my instagram I just posted. There’s this slow motion clip where you can really see the U gripping the rebound.
I see many of these goalies are using the 2 U string setup. Why is this? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each pattern of strings? I have never quite understood it.
Gonna write a post on this.
