hey don't beat your self up, you did really well. Lacrosse is a high scoring game and you'll let a load of goals in. You did make some top saves, so remember those and not the ones you let in.

Check out this website, there are some videos on being a goalie... search for the lacrosse tab

thanks ^_^ i'll try!

checked out the website, tried applying some of it at training but got kinda muddled up with shouting all the time too. i'm crap at multi-tasking haha.

Next training i'll be better prepared hopefully and won't get shot in the nads >.<

The first thing to focus on is to make the saves, the only way in improve on this is repetition, you need to be out in a goal having someone shoot on you, if you want to raise your game a good target is 1000 shots / week

Drills to help you on your own, walk the line, jumping rope, and using your top hand and throwing a ball off a wall and only catching it with your top hand.

Hey man, by taking one in the nuts means you are now an officail initiated keeper. Rock on!

Dude every keeper lets goals in but it's how your attitude is the next time you take a shot is what matters. As sir rhod said by beating yourself up will only be detrimental so head up, stick up and let the good times roll brother.

Peace out
Women cum and they go, Lacrosse is there forever!!! ROCK ON

For the most protection with range of motion, try to find an ice hockey goalie box it has the added protection for the lower stomach.

You think they'd sell it if they broke easily? Any box can be broken by a hard enough shot, the important thing is what happens to the pieces, cause hard plastic like a box will fracture
The only time he takes his foot out of his mouth, is to put the other one in!

or if it only breaks half way through n ends up 'pinching' as happened to one of my cricket playing mates. apparently it hurts ...just a little bit.
