wth! 2027's are rising 3rd graders. That's 10 year olds (12 in Maryland)! Isn't that a little too young to be driving up and down the turnpike all summer?

Not sure what age you were when you were going into 3rd grade. I hope it wasn't 10!

Based on his math skills, it's certainly possible.

My daughter is a 2027. She's learning to play goalie and has potential. Does anyone team offer training? Is it to early to do travel?

Potential based on what?? She is 8 or 9 years old and played 1 season of PAL?? Goalies at this age are closing their eyes and hoping to stop something. Great she wants to try it but I wouldn't pigeon hole her yet (I have a son that is several years older and a goalie)

She's playing with 2024 and 2025 boys and holding her own. Not saying she's the greatest but I'd like her to learn more and improve. Just asking for any info. Thanks

Breakout Goalie training. 1:1 training ($80/hour) Guy that runs it is great. Google it for more info.

Too early to do travel is a personal and family decision. Once you're in, you're probably in for good - need to ask yourself (and your family) if you want to spend the next 10 June/July's traveling up and down the Jersey Turnpike every other weekend. I'd be more concerned about being too early to decide on playing goalie. At 8 years old, kids should be playing all positions to learn the game, and then if she decides she wants to play goalie, she will have a much better understanding of what's going on in front of her. It will help socially too - the goalie is stuck in the crease while the rest of the girls are running drills, talking and having fun. Plus all that equipment's not very comfortable in 90 degree heat. Don't rush it, plenty of time.

One more thing I thought of as I hit Post - What if there is a better goalie in her class or ahead of her at school? If all she knows is playing goalie, she rides the bench. If she develops field awareness, stick skills, ability to play defense, etc. she has the option to play in the field instead.

I am not a fan of travel at this age. It is a lot of money to spend and they are still just learning. Half of them can't even catch consistently. Personally I would start in 4th grade.
