Big Stop Goalie School was created by Rob Scherr, former Johns Hopkins’ Team Captain and All-American and former Major League Lacrosse All-Star, to provide essential coaching and training for lacrosse goalies from the youth level through high school. As a player and coach, Rob realized many young goalies don’t have access to coaches who know the ins and outs of the position. Because of this, many goalies are not able to reach their full potential.
“I was extremely fortunate to have had a few great goalie coaches throughout my career who really helped me mold and evolve my game. For most goalies, having someone who can consistently remind and reinforce good habits is crucial for positive development,” Rob says.
The Big Stop staff is a mix of goalies, coaches, and shooters who are ready to teach, challenge, and encourage each player to reach their potential as a Big Stop Goalie.
Coach Rob drives his students to perform at their optimal level while motivating through positive reinforcement.
My daughter has received excellent goalie training at Big Stop Goalie School with Coach Rob. His training methods are highly and effective and fun.
My daughter has increased her confidence and desire to be the best she can be since working with Rob. We are blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Rob and will continue to do so in the future.
Coach Scherr is an amazing mentor and coach who furthers my ability every time I work with him. When I leave a session, I feel like I can achieve anything!
Rob is a passionate, dedicated and top notch goalie coach.
I have been so very impressed with the confidence that my son has gained from working with Rob over the past few years.
