Matthew as Goalie November 2, 2008

I only have one picture! His team has 6- and 7-year olds. They play 7 on the field. One as goalie, 3 as forwards, and 3 as defense. The defense and the forwards are not allowed to cross the middle line. It’s to help them learn to stay in and play their positions. The goalie has been someone different throughout the games to give each player a chance to try it out. I love the rules for this age group. They play 10-minute quarters and substitutions are only made at that time. Each person is usually sitting out for one of the 10 minutes and playing the other 30 minutes. Mostly depends on how many players show up for the game.

In this game, Matthew started out as goalie. Roy took videos, but I do have this one photo of him in the special shirt. He was excited!
