It's not hockey dude! Your comments show your utter lack of understanding of the game.

Keeper training would be nice. Very few clubs invest in that however.

Any club that only has one keeper on a team is asking for trouble

Also, i have seen some clubs give a free scholarship for a very good keeper. The other parents would bitch about that too I am sure

Good lesson, good keepers are worth a lot. Don't take them for granted

Sounds like the club should consider a better defensive structure, and more depth. If your midfields have no concept of team defense, and the defense is suffering through a rash of injuries...not much an extra few inches on your keeper will help.

Poor hands, slow off the line...that can be and should be rectified.

Lots of blame to go around but to start a thread and leave it as the size of the keeper is at fault only shows the cluelessness we are dealing with...

I'd rather have a shorter keeper with brass balls than a taller, more hesitant one. I've seen too many tall kids get shoved into the position at an early age merely because they were tall. Most wind up hating it and quitting or at least begging to go back on the field. A good GK WANTS the position and works hard at it.

Definitely not enough clubs have good GK training. If your kid wants it you have to seek it out

No. Most of those sh!t CFC popups don't have any training, let alone goalie training.

a lot of the smaller clubs don't have in-house, and send kids to supplemental GK clinics, not sure if that's an extra charge for the parents or if club picks it up. Our small club has in-house, 1 hr per week.
