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.
