When a lacrosse goalie is stopping shots, they aren’t just stopping shots. They are developing an understanding of shooters and their responses. I call this the Shooters Library and a lacrosse goalies Save Library. Just like when you went into the library (back in the day) and asked for a book, the librarian gave you a response. It was the book you asked for.
As a lacrosse goalie, you are responding to the shot. You are learning how shooters shoot. How they do what they do and when they can do it. And you’re developing your response to all of those shots. That’s your job.
In today’s episode, we’re going to talk about how to develop your shooters’ library and what to expect from shooters in practice based on your level of development. It’s gonna be a good one!
