Goal keeper
Goal keeper

The goal keeper is the last line of defence.

They guard the goal circle and the defensive third and must stop the goal shooter from scoring.

They have to stay alert so they can collect rebounds off the post and intercept passes.

Goal keepers are also responsible for taking throw-ins from the goal-line.

They are often tall and physical players who are prepared to fiercely protect their goal post!
