Lacrosse – Anything & Everything – What else is there?

Playing Goalie

Posted by Barry Marenberg on November 2, 2009

When you sign your son up for the CHIEFS team for the Spring season, the CHIEFS will enroll your son in the U.S. Lacrosse Foundation (part of your fee to the CHIEFS) [website for U.S. Lacrosse is in the Blogroll on the right side of this webpage].  U.S. Lacrosse  provides a wealth of information about the sport at all levels and you receive the very informative Lacrosse Magazine. 

For those boys who have expressed an interest in playing goalie, take a look at the article and embedded video in the link I recently received from Lacrosse Magazine online (http://www.laxmagazine.com/tips/players/2008-09/081009_scherr_goalies).  Goalie is a tough position as well as an important one and one that is really a fun to play.  It takes some getting used to and some learning a few fundamentals.  I will try and teach as much as I can before the winter games start but for the spring season we will have a good 2 months before we start our competitive season. 

The article in the link and the embedded video provide is very simple to follow and it communicates that basics of playing the goalie position.  Please show it to your son.
