Goalie Policy

* If an age level has more than one team, anyone playing goalie is invited to play in other age level squads' games at different field position (attack, midfield, defense)

* If a goalie does not have all required equipment, PRYL will provide a neck guard, chest protector and stick

* At U9 and U11 we encourage all players to try the goalie position

* Each age level will do their best to identify at least two goalies per team

* If an age level has one team, the goalies should alternate halves or alternate games (exception of U15-more scenario based)

* If an age level has one team and only one goalie, a team may inquire with a lower age level to "Play UP"-But only with player/parent consent



We ask that each player and parent review our S.T.A.R.S. core values statement and pledge to represent Pine-Richland Youth Lacrosse accordingly in the true spirit of the game.

Respect -   treat officials, opponents, teammates and family with

                utmost appreciation

                             strengths and weaknesses
