Fritz Hoffecker has been a lacrosse goalie since 1962--at high school in Maryland, as a starter at Princeton, and as a semi-legendary club goalie for 40 years. In The Beast in the Crease, he shares everything he's learned about how to be a great goalie. The book covers many subjects, such as: Attitude, Equipment, Focus, Watching the Ball, Stance, Stepping to the Ball, Stickwork, Clearing, Goalie Conditioning, Man-down, Fast Breaks, 1-on-1s, Screens, Baiting, Drills, Fritz' Personal Techniques and Tricks. Over 150 color photos and 35 diagrams. A must-read for every goalie-from the kid just starting out to the college starter who's in a slump. Coaches will learn practice techniques, pre-game prep, special conditioning tips, and much, much more. Fritz is fresh off being invited to a 2008 tryout with the Washington Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse. He didn't make the squad but in 25 minutes of play against players less than half his age, he had 7 saves and allowed just 2 goals.
