Deciding who will be your starter is a challenge in itself. What happens though after you’ve made your decision and there is a clear starter? How do you handle that throughout the season? What happens when things aren’t going well?
What about when you have two great goalies? Some coaches would consider it a dream to have two great goalies on their roster, as we know they are hard to come by. Others, however, that have been in the predicament know what a challenge this can be. Maybe one goalie is better at clearing and possessing, while another is good at making hard saves.

In this blog post, University of Florida senior goalie Olivia Cole was kind enough to share her story.

It doesn't mean you aren't good, as Olivia says, but it changes your role on the team. This happens to a lot of players, but mainly to goalies, since only one can play at a time. If you're in this position and find yourself not playing despite your best efforts, please keep read.
