Check that goalie is on end closest to the goal he will be guarding and that the In-home is on the field and at the opposite end. Offer a short talk and have goalies cross. The In-home must be on the field at the start of the game.

38 Positioning Settled Situations - Lead Has his goal as his primary responsibility. Try not to move off the goal line extended (GLE) unless: there is a contested play near the end line or must move to get a better angle on the play. Move in and out with ball. Be as close to the crease as possible without interfering with play. Do not allow players to get behind you. Has end line responsibility on all shots (chase shots to the end line!). Return to GLE before whistling ball into play.
