Last night our little man played goalie for his hockey team. Both his dad and I, heck even his grama and granpa have all encouraged him to play out of net.
He loves hockey, he loves playing net for road hockey, he can have a short attention span which we knew would bore him playing goalie.
I will give him props for giving it a shot this year, a new team, a new level at Novice. When his coach asked him if he would play goalie, he said yes. I was so proud of my boy. Yup there were times he was day dreaming, he was even doing his own exercises practicing getting up and down. But he did awesome.
They didn’t win the game (4-3) but they all played awesome! He was even faced with a penalty shot… which he saved!!! I’m so proud of my boy for trying, and also for realizing on his own, that being in net isn’t the position for him 🙂
