Being a Women's Lacrosse Goalie

Hello fellow laxers!

Being in the goal is a hard position. You must be mentally and physically strong. Fighting to keep a small ball out of a six foot by six foot goal; Remaining Calm after a ball does go in and being prepared for the next shot.

If you are thinking about becoming a women's lacrosse goalie I urge you to get in the goal and try it out. See if you like that aspect of the game, and if you do, keeping with it.
