The position of goalie is more than standing in the 7' x 12' field hockey net waiting for a ball to come your way. Goalies are the "captains" of the defense. They are in the position not only to stop goals but also watch the play as it happens and help players know where they should be and who they should be "marking up". Goalies need to be confident and not be afraid to use their voice- the louder the better! Girls interested in trying the position practicing (including running) in full goalie pads which include leg and feet pads, gloves, chest and arm protectors, neck guard, helmet and a mouth guard. Goalies will split their time in the goal with other goalies so there will still be opportunity to play in the field during games. TYFH has a designated goalie coach who will work with the goalies on how to move in the equipment and play the position include using their voice!
If you have any specific questions regarding the position please contact Goalie Coach Tiffany McCarthy at 203-526-4363 or
