[QUOTE=Unregistered;451279]Ask the coach to pick up a good field player who can also be a very effective goalie if the need arises.
ASK the coach!? Let him do his job, that is what you are paying him for! Parents like this crack me up. Please don't make any suggestions to the coach about this or really anything, it is crossing a line.
This is coming from a parent of a keeper and field player. The question originally asked is a good one, but truthfully you need to talk with the coach about what his plans are. And then you can decide if you stay with this club or leave. I have been there so I get it. My sons club made the decision to take on another keeper after he'd been their one and only for 5 years. He played 1/2 a game from then on, we weren't happy but just dealt with it. 2 games into the season my son broke his shoulder...so the coach clearly knew what he was doing.
Trust that your childs coach is doing whats best for the team 1st, not the individual player. 2nd he is doing what is best for the club ($$)
