LAX SUMMER CAMP
What to expect form our training…
First, we would like to get to know your student athlete as a person and his or her learning style. Each person has a dominant and recessive learning style. Together we will discover the best learning methods for your athlete to process information shared during each session.
OUR PROGRAM focuses on a player’s development by laying the proper skills, movement and mental preparation needed to become the best possible goaltender. Lax Light Goalie Academy is not a goalie factory. We do not mass produce goalies because our goal is quality not quantity. We take a professional interest in each and every goalie we see in order to develop them to their fullest possible potential.
Offseason Lesson Pricing
Private Lessons: $50.00 per hour
Semi Private Lessons: $40.00 per hour
4 Goal Group Lesson: $30.00 per hour
We typically schedule four to five private lessons in order to establish sound footwork, stick form and locating the shot.
Once the goalie has developed, the basic foot work and stick form we offer our goalies to train with a goalie with similar skills and age. This foster goalies to work and compete with each other.
Our group lessons will consist of four goalies. Theses lesson will focus on refining footwork, stick form and developing communication skills needed to direct the defense.
OUR PHILOSOPHY is to develop proper goaltending movement through constant repetition of the fundamentals which yields focus, confidence, muscle memory and visual imprinting.
Mental preparation is a large part of a goalie’s game. Providing visual images helps developing goalies see the shooting angles and plays develop. They will be able to position themselves in the right place at the right time. Mental Preparation is often more important than the actual physical portion of the game. GOALIES must be
prepared in both mind and body in the pursuit of becoming … THE TOTAL GOALTENDER.

Training with Joe has helped my son to quickly acquire the fine skills that he lacked as a recent convert to the goalie position. Joe focuses not only on the physical elements of the position but mental preparedness was well, which in many ways may be the most important but hardest skill to exercise. The innovativeness of the approach that allows his student to visualize while they experience the training is impressive. When I brought my older son who was a four starting goalie for a successful Division 2 college program to one of the sessions to get his opinion of the training. His comment was “I wish I had this type of training”. With his drills and knowledge of the game he has formed me from a good goalie to a great goalie .
Staring Varisity High School Goaile Testimonial
I have enjoyed every minute here and will continue coming here. It is a great off-season workout. I would tell any of my fellow goalies on my high school team to join me as.
I am extremely pleased with the progress I’ve seen in my 10-year-old daughter since she started her lessons. Between the verbal instruction and the lighting system, she quickly picked up and memorized proper positioning, stance and posture, and has shown an increase in confidence on the field. Most importantly, she has a great time coming here and looks forward to every lesson! She even wants to keep practicing when we get home (very unusual for her)… ; )
Joe is great to work with as a parent, provides guidance and tips, and is very encouraging for the student. Madison’s progress this year, clearly noted by other coaches, is a testament to this methodology.
Beginner Goaile Testimonial
When I started lacrosse goalie I was just a girl with her gear, now I am better then I ever thought I would be this soon after starting. Now I’m saving, stopping, catching and clearing balls. These lessons have made me better and faster then ever. I LOVE coming here once a week because it’s fun to practice and knowing that this season I’ll be so much better then last year. I owe it all to Joe!!!

To whom it may concern,
I am writing this letter on behalf of Joseph Dellanno. I have known Joe for only three months, but in that time he has changed my overall awareness on lacrosse goalies. This past 2012 lacrosse season Joe devoted an enormous amount of time and effort to improve our goalies skills. He joined our coaching staff as a volunteer to work with our Varsity and Junior Varsity goaltenders. Joe has a lot of knowledge to share about the game of lacrosse particularly for goalies. He has a great work ethic and works extremely well with others. Joe is personable and has a refreshing attitude towards life. He is very reliable, responsible, punctual, and trustworthy.
I am confident Joe would be a perfect fit to train goalies at all levels. His coaching style proves his love for the game. All four of my goalies in the lacrosse program at Arlington Catholic learned an incredible amount of knowledge from Joe this past season. They improved greatly at each practice and game as the season went on. Joe created a strong bond with each goalie in which they trusted his guidance to save the ball in net. Throughout the season he focused on our goalies footwork, technique, communication, clears, positioning and visualizing the field.
Joe would be a great asset to lacrosse goalies of all ages. I feel most athletes would love the positive and fun attitude Joe would bring to the field. His patience and drive to win is much appreciated.
