I'm 27 and am thinking of trying to learn to play goalie as well. I'm just getting back into the game and still play out, but some of the lower leagues and pickup sessions are lacking in goalies, and goalies often get to play for free...
and avoid bulking up unless you have a trainer that knows how to get you there without loosing flexibility.
This is definitely true! I used to be pretty flexible, even though I wasn't in the greatest shape. Years later, after the Army and lots of gym time, I'm in great shape, but I've found my flexibility has gone to the pits. It became especially apparent because I'm also getting back into martial arts; I am hoping the stretching exercises I'm starting will help my hockey as well. That's part of the reason I want to try goalie, though, I'll probably just end up tearing my groin!
Good luck learning the position.
