Alex Rode

Goalie Coach - 2022


2019 - "Despite earning the starting position for much of last season, we are witnessing both a new level of stopping the ball and accuracy with outlet passes that characterize a newfound approach to being an elite athlete." 2018 - “A first-year goalie, this mild-mannered, unassuming young man off the field transforms himself once he steps into the crease. It is both this presence and Alex’s shot-stopping abilities that builds his teammates’ confidence in him. The poise belies his youth, yet it is clearly evident. Alex is also demonstrating the dexterity to quickly and accurately release the ball with his outlet passing after a save. Alex is in the thick of the competition for the starting position in our goal.”
