Instructional Competitive, Novice and Atom House League

Goaltending Policy

 

(a) There will be no permanent goalies in Instructional Competitive Division, Novice or Atom. Permanent goalie means a player that plays no position other than goaltender every week.

(b) Coaches must rotate the position a minimum of every 2 weeks. The coach shall maintain a list of those players that have expressed interest in trying the position of goaltender. This list will be compiled at the first regularly scheduled practice. ALL PLAYERS are to be given the opportunity to try the position should they wish to do so.

(c)  It is not mandatory for a child to play goal. If a child does not want to try the position that is perfectly acceptable and no one will be forced.

(d) At the conclusion of all interested players on a team trying the position of goaltender the coach can then offer the next round of rotation to those players that are most interested in playing the position of goaltender on a regular basis. The coach will then rotate thru all of these players for the duration of the season.

(e) Coaches can select a goalie for Final Days, Tournaments or Exhibition games.

(f)  Sarnia Hockey will invest in proper goaltending equipment for Instructional Competitive, Novice and Atom division. This equipment is the property of Sarnia Hockey and is meant to be used at the arenas for on ice practices and games. Any damage that is caused to the equipment while away from the arena is the responsibility of the parents and/or coach of the team.
