JUDGEMENT OF A SHOT
Goalies are vital to a team's success, which is why having elite visual skills is critical to performance. Goalies must remain focused and aware at all times – always being prepared for quick, incoming shots, along with monitoring a developing play or tracking of the ball as it moves across the field.

Visual Skills

Understanding a goalie's core-six visual skills allows players, coaches and scouts to identify and improve visual weaknesses and enhance the athlete’s overall performance in goal.

Convergence

Convergence is the ability to focus on objects within close proximity and judge their movement.

  • Ability to focus on an incoming shot
  • Ability to locate the ball in a scrum

Divergence

Divergence is the ability to locate objects in the distance, impacting an athlete’s ability to anticipate and react.

  • Ability to locate the ball following the initial save/deflection
  • Locating the ball in various areas on the field

Depth Perception

Depth perception uses both eyes to locate objects in space to judge their distance, speed, and direction.

  • Judge spin, speed and trajectory of a shot
  • Locating balls coming from a distance

Alignment

Proper alignment creates no difference between the perceived location and actual location of an object.

  • Lining up position to make a save
  • Crispness & decisiveness of movements
  • Overall timing as a goalie

Recognition

Recognition is the ability to observe, process and recall a series of visual targets, and respond properly.

  • Recognizing opponent's positioning
  • Anticipation & reacting to the ball
  • Overall lacrosse IQ & reading of the game

Tracking

Tracking allows you to follow an object while continuously monitoring all other aspects of the game.

  • Reacting to deflections & passes
  • Overall anticipation & reaction speeds
  • Tracking the ball through the air as it approaches the net

- Andrew Shortridge '18-19 Quinnipiac University All-american & current AHL Goaltender
