Getting in the Flow with Trevor Tierney – LGR Podcast 45


As the only lacrosse goalie to ever win an NCAA national championship (with Princeton), FIL World Championship (with Team USA), and an MLL championship (Baltimore Bayhawks), there’s no question Trevor Tierney is one of the greatest goalies to ever lace ’em up.

Trevor was a two-time All-American, Academic All-American and 2001 NCAA Goalie of the Year at Princeton University, where he won two Division I National Championships.

Trevor then went on to be named All-World Goalie in the 2002 ILF World Championships in Perth, Australia. He also played for Team USA in 2006, when the team won a silver medal in the ILF Championships.

In 2009, Trevor joined his father Bill Tierney at the University of Denver and coached there for four seasons. He was instrumental in helping lead the Pioneers to two NCAA Final Fours as he worked with the defense and goalies.

In 2012, he was inducted into the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

In this conversation we explore how Trevor developed his unique style of goalie play and how he approaches the mental side of the lacrosse goalie position.

  1. Hey Coach

    I have trouble following Trevors explanation on using your eyes different than focus on the ball. Maybe you could help me.

    The way tried to understand it like this:
    You don’t focus on the ball, but on the imaginary square around the shooter, shortly before the shoot is released you focus on your contact Window (arm length in front of you) to determine where the ball is going.
    Is this the right approach to put his theory into practice ?

    I also would love to read a Blog article from you about this “Tennis in the Zone” topic.

    Keep the great work up!

    Best Regards
