We are contacting boys and girls lacrosse goalies from ages 10 – 18 and their parents to invite them to our free “LAX LIGHT” fall goalie clinics. Our training focuses on the goalies eyes, hands and feet. We help goalies develop good habits, mental focus and train to be in the right position at the right place at the right time. We keep it simple, keep it focused and we keep it real.
We believe lacrosse goalies are not targets to shoot at.

Using our patent pending coaching method ggoalies will have a great time interacting with our today’s latest technology which projects visual cues on the practice surface. Following moving players icons goalies quickly improve their level of play simply because it feels like they are playing a video game and the coaches can concentrate on their eyes, hands and feet movement.
We will also have Katie Brooks meeting players and goalies as well. Katie is a former Division 1 player who is currently training with the Canadian World Cup Lacrosse Team. She is a special player and an amazing person.
We welcome you and a couple of guest to come and train with us for an hour. It will be worth the trip to see and train with the LAX LIGHT and you will see the difference an hour can make training with “LAX LIGHT” at the Goalie Academy

What to expect form our training…
Athletes are people and we would like to get to know your student athlete
as a person. Each person has a dominate and passive learning style and we
will discover the best learning methods that will help your athlete
process information shared during each session.
OUR PROGRAM focuses on a player’s development by laying the proper
foundation of fundamentals and building the skills needed to become the
best possible goaltender. Lax Light Academy is not a goalie factory. We
do not mass produce our goalies. Our goal is quality not quantity. We
take a personal interest in each and every goalie we see in order to
develop them to their fullest possible potential.
OUR PHILOSOPHY is to develop goaltending basics movement through constant
repetition of the fundamentals resulting in well defined muscle memory.
Whether in a small group or a private lesson, we provide Individual
attention to each and every goalie. We identify both the mental and
physical characteristics needed to transform a good goalie into a great
When it comes to mental preparation we are giant steps ahead of our
competitors. You’ll find the benefit of mental preparation useful, both on
and off the turf and in situations beyond the realm of lacrosse.
This approach to being the very best you can be, has been totally
neglected by goalies and coaches in their training regiment. It is our
mission and responsibility to develop the TOTAL GOALTENDER. Mental
Preparation can often be more important than the actual physical portion
of the game. GOALIES must be prepared in both mind and body if they want
to become … THE TOTAL GOALTENDER.

Coaches are combing the Internet for today’s latest technology’ to gain a competitive edge and to give their players visual information needed to play at a high level of competition. Nike and Smart Light Technology are two companies that are developing products for coaches and players that provides valuable information during practices.
By blocking or disrupting vision using a strobe or flicker effect that can be varied in speed, an athlete can develop quicker reaction times and motor skills. The strobe effect improves reaction time by switching between clear and blocked vision, which trains the brain to anticipate what‘s coming when the eyes are blocked. Features include an adjustable head strap for a secure fit and liquid-crystal lens technology with variable speeds for different levels of training.
In everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo.
We do this by developing ideas that are creatively designed, simple to understand and user-friendly. We believe in creating interactive learning environments through the use of full motion color graphics as visual reinforcement.
As coaches we enjoy teaching and training players, but have become frustrated trying to use traditional practice tools. Missed communicating the intent of the drill is often frustrating for both the players and coaches. It wastes valuable practice time. Our passion is designing visually compelling learning tools that are simple, easy to understand and effective.

CHULA VISTA, California, May 29, 2012 — Youth athletes and their coaches are looking at training in a new light—literally, thanks to Joe Dellanno, president of Smart Light Sports of Arlington, MA and inventor of Ice Light, Court Light, Lane Light and Turf Light systems for hockey, basketball, volleyball, marching bands, bowling and turf sports. The new patent-pending systems use Hitachi CP-X10000 3LCD projectors to display animated graphics and images onto the playing surface where the athletes can practice in an entirely new and engaging way.
“Coaches are always looking to increase players’ skills and get the most out of their practice time,” noted Dellanno. “However, there’s always been a disconnect between the coaches and the display technology they use to get their points across to the players. How do you convey the feel of moving around on a 17,000-square-foot playing surface using an 8-foot projection screen?”
“With Ice Light, we wanted to show players what they could never see before, such as making shooting angles visible, watching plays develop on the ice, following animations that show how the puck travels, and displaying movement cues and explanations that show players where to skate,” Dellanno added
“In my architectural business I use projectors for presentations all the time,” Dellanno continued. “Once my children started playing sports and I started coaching, it gave me the idea: why couldn’t I turn the projector 90 degrees and do the same thing on a playing surface?”
However, to make the system work for hockey, Dellanno needed a projector that was bright enough to project images onto a variety of playing surfaces.
John Bonyman of North Billerica, MA-based systems integrator Total Audio Video worked hand in hand with Dellanno in developing the system and recommended the Hitachi CP-X10000. Total Audio Video is the exclusive integrator for Ice Light.
“I knew the Hitachi projector would be a good fit for this unique application because of its brightness and its ability to achieve a big enough image size,” said Bonyman. Currently, Smart Light systems are in place in rinks in Woburn, MA and Exeter, NH, and a system is being installed at Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle, NY in its new rink and turf facility.
“Giving the players the ability to look at visual cues right on the surface is amazingly effective,” Bonyman continued. “Usually, hockey practices are 50 minutes and during that time you get about 30 minutes of skating time, and the rest of the time the players are doing something else – but you’re still paying for the down time over the course of maybe 60 practices in a season.”
“With Ice Light, the players are spending a lot more time skating. But more importantly, they’re more focused and engaged,” Dellanno pointed out. “It’s pretty amazing–you can run through a drill and after just one time the players get it and are doing it themselves. Also, we can project multiple images, which allow all the players to participate in drills, not just some of them.”
“Ice Light enables better, faster and more effective skill development, and Hitachi is an essential part of the system,” Dellanno concluded.
The CP-X10000 projector offers XGA resolution, with a brightness of 7,500 ANSI lumens and a 2500:1 contrast ratio. It features inorganic LCD panels for longer projector life and dust-resistant cooling systems, allowing the filter to operate for 10,000 maintenance-free hours. The CP-X10000 also features a 3,000-hour lamp life and blackboard/whiteboard mode and daytime mode. Security features include a PIN lock, Kensington slot and transition detector.

SCHOOLCRAFT, MI – For years, coach Terry Haas had an unusual method of motivating his football players at Schoolcraft High School: He would slap them in the head.
The hitting typically happened at practice while the students were watching game films, without their helmets, and the usual targets were the kids sitting in the front. To make a point, Haas would give a hard smack to the side of the head or jam his palm into the player’s face, forcing his head back.
Although Haas has been coaching football at the high school for more than 20 years and this is his seventh year as varsity coach, Athletic Director Ted Manning maintains this school year is the first time he and other Schoolcraft administrators became aware that Haas was hitting players.
In September, Rusty Stitt, the new superintendent of Schoolcraft Community Schools, received an anonymous phone call from an adult complaining that Haas slapped a player. An investigation followed that confirmed the incident had happened and that it wasn’t an isolated occurrence.
“Coach Haas routinely will ‘rough up’ a couple kids in the front row during film sessions,” said Manning’s written report to Stitt, which was obtained by the Kalamazoo Gazette through the Freedom of Information Act. “This is not meant to cause physical harm but to motivate the players and the team.”
I am sure coach Terry Haas’s intention was not to hurt anyone, but his frustration can lead to hitting players to get their attention.
Technology can help coaches like Terry Haas communicate with his players to ensure that both the players and coaches are on the same page.
The season maybe over for many hockey players and goalies, but at Puckstoppers
the off season training has begun.
New training equipment and ICE LIGHT drills will take goalies to the next level.
We had a record number of goalies win high school titles, individual awards and move on to the next level of hockey!
Congrats goalies…you worked hard and it payed off!
