    How a Lacrosse Goalie Can Get Better For Lacrosse Season Fast

    How a Lacrosse Goalie Can Get Better For Lacrosse Season Fast

    It’s the time of year where lacrosse goalies want to get ready for lacrosse season quickly.
    You may have been playing all winter or taken time off.
    It doesn’t really matter what you’ve done up until this point because most goalies still feel a bit nervous going into any season.  Will you be as good as last year? Will you be better? Will you remember how to make saves? Will the coach pick you to be the starter?
    None of these questions matter as much as what you DO between now and the start of your season.
    So here goes, Coach Edwards’ tips for getting ready for the fast approaching lacrosse season:

    Stop Wasting Your Time With Useless Goalie Drills

    Stop Wasting Your Time With Useless Goalie Drills

    I nearly lost my mind when one of my goalies from Australia sent me a video from US Lacrosse with some really...um...how you say..."lame" drills with some horrible advice.
    So in today's audio, we talked a ton about proper drills.  Progression. Specificity.  And other scientific principles that lacrosse goalie coaches need to understand in order to help their goalies, no matter what the level, and stop wasting their time!

    David Lasday - COO Israel Lacrosse

    David Lasday - COO Israel Lacrosse

    David Lasday has been helping communities come together for over a decade.  When he got involved with the sport of lacrosse in 2010 I don't even think he realized the impact he was going to have on the sport of lacrosse, and beyond.
    Israel lacrosse is growing inside its country, and beyond but it's bringing Arab and Israeli athletes through the sport we love.
    I reached out the David to learn more about what Israel lacrosse was all about, how it's growing, and the challenges the program is going through as it helps grow the game of lacrosse globally.  
    I know you'll enjoy today's call just as much as I did.

    Our Weekly QnA Facebook Live for 10/16/2019

    In this week's lacrosse goalie questions and answers we covered some great topics:
    1) We're starting to see more and more protection being worn in the professional lacrosse ranks. I've been preaching that lacrosse goalies need more protection for...oh...twenty-five years! Seriously. And it looks like the tide is turning. From Alex Kaut of the Long Island Lizards. Scotty Rodgers in the PLL and to Adam Ghittleman, also of the PLL starting to sell a line of shin guards for lacrosse goalies. It's a start!
    2). Coach Edwards talks about footwork for lacrosse goalies and why ladder drills really aren't the way to improve footwork when it comes to goalies.
    3). We also covered how to incorporate lacrosse goalies into team practices so you don't feel like their standing off on their own doing nothing. It takes a little bit of creativity and management, but even if you're a lone coach with twenty kids on your team, you can still do it effectively.

No by the death ,

Most Progressive Coach Available

I have followed Jonathan for over a year now and he consistently challenges what is considered “settled law” in order to enhance goalie play in the game. His common sense approach often contradicts conventional wisdom, but going against the grain enhances your goalie’s abilities, confidence, and aptitude.
