This title is suitable for children of ages 9 to 12 years. Fifth grader Max Speyer has been chosen to be the starting goalie for the local youth lacrosse league. Because he is younger and smaller than the team's other goalie, he lacks the confidence he needs to beat his archrival, Snake Eyes. In order to boost his confidence, he trains to the point of obsession - until an enlightening conversation with his neighbour, Dr. Bob, shows him that he needs to let go and trust that all his training has made him a good enough player to get the job done. Can he beat his nemesis? This story combines lacrosse scenarios with solid sports psychology to provide solutions to many significant challenges that youth players face. Included in the novel are a glossary of lacrosse terms and 10 winning sports psychology tips.
