Thinking Inside the Crease: The Mental Secrets to

Becoming a Dominant Lacrosse Goalie


Thinking Inside the Crease is a guide for lacrosse goalies to learn how to dominate in the cage psychologically. Playing goalie is 100% physical as well as 100% mental. The competition in high school and college has gotten so stiff that the best goalies must have the mental game to back up their technique.


Chris Buck has worked with hundreds of goalies from youth to the MLL over the past twenty years, helping them with their technique but realized the best goalies in the world are the ones with the best mental game as well. The strategies inside this book are utilized by the best in the sport and now they are passed down to the next generation of goalies. From the PLL to high school, the goalies who have followed Coach Buck's process have gone on to play at the highest level, including MLL Championships, Team USA, PLL, and MLL Goaltenders of the Year. 

“Coach Buck has managed to take the thoughts and fears of every goaltender and put it to pen and paper. In a position comprised of more than just physical attributes, we as coaches do not do a good job understanding what makes goalies tick. This book is the first ever true glance into the mind of a goaltender, and it couldn’t be more accurate!”

 - John Galloway, Team USA Goalie, MLL Goalie of the Year & 2x NCAA All-American   

“What Chris does with the goalie position is exceptional. The psychological side of the goalie position is not talked about enough, and Chris has made a difficult subject easy for goalies of all ages to understand. He is a great teacher, speaker, coach and now writer. Since I met Chris, I have used some of his techniques to win 2 MLL championships as the Chesapeake Bayhawks starting goaltender.”
