Big difference in subject matter of girl talk between an 05 and an 01.
My Daughter scored twice in National Cup 2018 and played the field up through first half of Semi then saved 5/7 pks;in Semi(3/3) and Finals 2/4.
My daughter was only keeper boys and girls not to give up a goal in Far West 2018.
My kid is currently playing up 2 years (u16 --> U18). He got to guest and play down a year (U17) over the summer. On the boys side, the jump from U13/14 to U16 is huge because puberty and skills are improving. The U18's and U19's are now blasting the ball. Its fun to watch. If the kid has the size and skills, I recommend playing up. The only down side is the social aspect. The kid needs to be able to hang with the olders.
Fortunately (or unfortunately) my 15 year old is a foul month little b@$!@rd that teaches sailors the finer points of cursing in an online extension course, so he keeps up pretty well. The boys on the team have accepted him, probably due to the fact he even has an imaginary girlfriend that is 8 weeks pregnant.
Mine didn't have anything to do in the first half of a game today so they put him on the field at striker with a you must connect 5 passes before you score rule and all our defenders on offense. He had an "even the keeper" scored moment with additional SOG and 2 assists. Afterwards he went up to the opposite keeper and told him "it wasn't your fault man...you did great out there but there were too many SOGs".
My 03 Keeper. First pic, after she punched out a corner and the second one was a 1v1 save.
Something for all keepers to brag about..but we already knew this.
With about 3 minutes remaining... PK save to keep it 3-2.
Look at that form!!!!
My #11. Check out the ball.

Last weekend we got to the field with about a half hour to spare. We parked by the littles to just watch and remember. Time flies so enjoy ever second of it people.
My 03 keeper with her 02 DPL team from this weekend
Great result, but was it an own goal? Great to see u-littles playing and having fun.
Too funny, pregame.
Truth. I’m all about that pre-game warm up photo but standing so that you can’t see who is shooting. Lol.
They do grow up fast.
Yep, I took that pic 10 years ago for this post.
The game that turned my son into a goalkeeper!
Here is a YouTube clip of my son in a preseason U12 tournament. He always had a propensity for playing in goal, but after the penalty kick shoot out, it solidified his decision.
