Goalie Play

Published by:

Over the years I have had the opportunity to be around and help coach many great Goalies from Alex Heaton (Lovett), Ben Flood (Lovett), David Perrin (Westminster) Justin Leaf (Pace), Kevin Kirkwood (Chattahoochee), Alex Crawford (Lassiter) and Sage Hardin (Marist).  All of these Goalies had different traits and characteristics that helped them excel.  In some cases it was great feet, eyes, quickness, communication, leadership or natural athletic ability.   But all of them developed their fundamentals for playing the position and worked hard at mastering those fundamentals.

I came across this article recently (see below link) regarding Goalie play.  The article outlines several drills for any coach who wants to help his goalies improve.

There are many drills to use to work with goalies but these drills I believe will be great for any goalie and great warm ups before and during practice.  As a long time coach I always ask our goalies to try and come to practice 20 minutes before the team arrives so we can work on individual drills.  The reason for this is not many teams have a goalie coach and when the team starts going the goalie typically gets left behind.  Try these out it may help your goalies play at a higher level and they are a lot of fun.

Coach Lou to speak at the US Lacrosse National Convention

Published by:

Baltimore, Maryland

The US Lacrosse Convention is this weekend January 23 to the the 25th.

It is a truly amazing experience to be an attendee at the National Convention.  You get to see the best coaches in the country speak, see new equipment and swag, learn about new rule changes.  You get a chance to catch up with friends and ex-teammates and you are surrounded by one of the best sports organizations in the country…US LACROSSE.

I have many friends at US Lacrosse and they run such a great event.  It is no small task as I have served on the convention committee before and what the people at US Lacrosse do before during and after the event is top notch and first class all the way.

This will mark my 16th time presenting at the convention and I am honored and humbled to be speaking again.  I meet so many great coaches every year and I love that fact that I get to help in some small way.

If you plan on attending I hope to see you and if you can stop in and see my presentation.
