Longstreth takes the time and care to select the right products from companies that make sporting goods equipment and clothing designed specifically for female bodies. Leave me a comment down below. When he races the time trials he wears an aero helmet and booties that cover the straps on his shoes. I wasn't always the Lax Goalie Rat. Same with the training gear, there are many great pieces of gear.
Then I put some weights in there, or you can use some big soup cans or a jug of milk and put it in the stick over night. If you want to get an Eclipse 2, they are making everyone get the full stick before they release the head only in the fall!! They require more padding and almost full coverage to protect themselves against lacrosse balls. Passing is one of the in lacrosse so make sure you practice frequently. He is the greatest coach I have ever had and he has become a great friend. Have friend take shots at the goal, or pass a ball back and forth with you.
However, very few of these stores are geared specifically towards female athletes. The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Watch my unboxing video, I orderd this and the pocket turned out pretty good. The goal is to get your game to the next level, be a part of the long tradition of Peak Goalies that bring their game to the highest level in the game of lacrosse. Making saves with a small crosse is really difficult! About Coach Damon Lacrosse is my passion! I still feel very mobile with this chest protector. If strings break we will correct it.
Thumb protection is made up of three flexible and very padded sections. A Goalie is the last line of defense when it comes to keeping points off the scoreboard. Couple things about this goalie: Not that big in the cage. A wider crosse head will make catching the ball easier, and a deeper pocket depth allows you more control. One of the most common injuries amongst goalies is a broken thumb. Their gloves may be worn, or wet from the previous practice where they never let them dry out.

The scoop on the Eclipse 2 head was flattened a bit as well as re-angled for better ground balls. Suddenly our team was down to just one goalie.
Some reviews sighted the textured rubber mesh palms made gripping the stick awkward. I also have a full available as a post.
