As the father of a 7 year old goalie I agree with this article 100%. Every position player gets a rest in between reps, yet a goalie is supposed to face shot after shot after shot and not get any recovery time. It's both physically and mentally draining for a goalie to have to be "on" for the entire practice. The coach then wonders why their goalie looks gassed midway through practice.

The shame is that if coaches paid more attention to their goalies I think their practices would be much more efficient and effective.
