Prepare to fall down on accident many times.

For the equipment I would never order a pair of goalie pads that I'm unsure of if they'll fit me or not. Always try on the equipment before buying. If you're trying on goalie pads, bring your goalie skates with you or borrow a pair at the store to use.
This is pretty accurate. If you were expecting soccer to give you a leg up on learning how to be a goalie, sorry to disapoint you
