Program Overview

3d Lacrosse is offering goalie-specific training to high school and youth boys this November! The Goalie Academy Clinic will be led by goalie expert Chris Burdick. Recently named the Director of Lacrosse at Webber International University and possessing both NCAA and MLL goalie coaching experience, Coach Burdick brings lacrosse goalie instruction that is routed in fundamental, biomechanical movements using the "straight-line theory" as well as providing motor response and reaction-oriented task instruction, making for a complete experience in goalie training.

In 28 seasons of college lacrosse, Burdick has led his teams to a total of 11 NCAA tournaments and 21 conference championships as well as the 2019 MLL Championship as the Defensive Coordinator and Goalie Coach for the Chesapeake Bayhawks. Burdick has coached Brian Phipps, Niko Amato, Austin Kaut, Shane Doss and Jack Concannon in Major League Lacrosse and has been the goalie coach for storied programs like Notre Dame, UMass, Cornell, Delaware and Providence.

Burdick was a starting goalkeeper for the University of Delaware from 1988-1991 and studied goaltending response behaviors in his Master’s thesis in 1995. Completing post graduate work at the University of Delaware, Burdick worked his way up the coaching ladder with positions at Cornell, UMass, Delaware and Notre Dame until he landed a position at Providence College. While at Providence, Burdick led the Friars to nine consecutive conference playoffs, seven conference championships and three Division I NCAA tournament berths. Burdick coached five MAAC Defensive Player of the Year award winners, including three-time MAAC Defensive Player of the Year and Providence College Hall of Fame inductee Brian O’Rorke. Burdick’s goalies at Providence have combined for 7 of the league’s top 20 goalie performances of all-time regarding goals against average. After 14 seasons in the MAAC, Burdick joined the University of Tampa coaching staff where he helped the team advance to six NCAA tournaments including three NCAA Semifinals (2014, 2016, 2017). In 2016, Burdick was recognized nationally when he was named the Nike/IMLCA Division II National Assistant Coach of the Year.

Most recently, Chris Burdick helped lead the Chesapeake Bayhawks to victory in the 2019 MLL Championships.
