Just wondering where the skill level (age?) needs to be for the goalie and players on the pitch to use the option of passing the ball from defense or midfield back to the goalie and then reseting and working the ball out from the back? I really haven't seen any of our U14 boys or girls teams (or competitors) execute a pass to the goalie in a game situation yet, but I really wanted to try to encourage it as an option to advance them to higher level of play. I'm just not sure if my team U14 lower skilled girls team is ready for that option yet. The concept might be way over their head. There are only a few on the team that know how to work a ball to space or pass an other direction but forward (see prior post on that issue).
