LAXCON 2019 was incredible.  We premiered our new version and the updates are exciting. 

  • Female shooters! – This has been our most requested feature.
  • Female Penalty Shots – See a penalty shot from the eights.
  • Close Fakes – The shooter will fake between 0 and 3 times before shooting.  He/She will turn their torso and bend their hips depending on where the fake or shot are aimed.
  • Alley Dodge Improvements – the running motion, hips and shots have been updated.  Shots are a random mix of overhand and sidearm.
  • Time and Room Shot Improvements – Overhand and sidearm shots have been updated.  Underhand will be updated in the next release.
  • Bug Fixes – We found some defects that needed to be addressed.
  • Easter Egg – We put an Easter egg in close fakes.  Let us know if you find it.  It will be obvious. ๐Ÿ™‚

Course & Training Recommendations

Warmup

Every time you train with Virtual Goalie, start with a Warmup course. The data from this course is not stored. It is intended as a warmup only. 

Assessment

The first time you use the system, you must do an Assessment course. This course has two drills, each 100 shots. The first drill has shots going everywhere, with no bounce. The second has shots going everywhere, bouncing. For both, the speed increases incrementally from your baseline minus 5 MPH to your baseline plus 35 MPH. For example, if your baseline is 65 MPH, the speeds will range from 60 to 100 MPH. (You entered your baseline in the Settings in the app.) 

The point of this assessment is for you to collect a lot of data about your abilities. It gives you a starting point to compare your progress over time, and provides data that gives you insight into your ability to make saves at different speeds.

Speed Training

We highly suggest you do the Speed Training course three times per week. It is designed to increase your ability to make saves at high speeds. It will take you out of your comfort zone. Thatโ€™s OK! The course consists of five drills, each of which increases the shot speed incrementally from your baseline minus 5 MPH to your baseline plus 20 MPH.

Tailor Your Training

Beyond these suggestions, tailor your training routine to your needs. If you have trouble with bounce shots, do Bouncer Training. If up close shots freak you out, do the Up Close drill. You can also create your own drills and courses in the app to further customize your training experience.

Have fun!
