The DEFY Lacrosse Goaie Academy Program Partnership is designed for those committed to learning how to save shots and move in the goal at the highest level. Limited to an exclusive group of teams, the program partnership provides the unprecedented opportunity to work with some of the best in the country.

The Defy Crease Coach™ program has been tested and refined for over 5 years. After consulting with many of the nations' top goalies and coaches, Crease Coach Founder Johnny Rodriguez created Program Partnership to spread the games best goalie methodologies to teams dedicated to becoming great.

Now, with a system solely dedicated to training coaches and players in the art of goalie work, we are able to implement a system into teams that coaches and players can take with them on their journey.

Unlike many camps and skills development companies, Program Partnership is not dedicated to entertaining the athlete. We care about one thing, turning goalies into shot-stoppers.

In this system your team and staff will learn about the direct connection between the mind and body, and learn how to identify and destroy habitual problems that prevent goalies from moving efficiently.

Labeling, thematic principles, and proper human movement will be the pillars from which you learn to derive information and apply to any problem.

Last but not least, this is a full immersion program. Massive results come from massive action, and massive action requires immersion.

  • 1 hour seminar/classroom work with coaching staff

Option #1: Odyssey

One of our favorite things about this program is our ability to work with other coaching staffs. We don’t come in, “fix” your players, and call it a day. We take everything we have learned and share it with both your coaches and players. We want to know that when we consult with a program we are instilling a tool set that can be accessed long after we leave.


Program Partnership

Preparing oneself to confidently and properly save shots is extremely difficult. When most athletes go to learn a skill they believe they are adding to their game. However, to truly excel one needs to cut the fat and get down to the bear bones of what creates a desired outcome. We apply the S.C.C.C. method: Simplicity = Clarity = Confidence = Creativity. The best goalies in the world operate on a very simple, but sophisticated level.

All program partnership options require the following


Because emotions and thoughts impact physical output, understanding how to move is crucial. A common excuse for poor performance is lack of talent. In reality, the “more talented” athlete moves correctly more often than the “untalented” athlete. The nervous system fires and recognizes proper movement patterns to create an outcome. Your players and staff will learn how to apply this understanding on a physiological level.
