We believe that goalkeepers should not be a feature of play at the U6 and the U8 age groups. All players in these age groups should be allowed to run around the field and chase the toy, a.k.a – the ball.
For teams in the U-10 and older age groups goalkeepers should become a regular feature of play. However, young players in the U-10 and U-12 age groups should not begin to specialize in any position at this time in their development.
