Goalie schools

In many contact sports where there is a target, (where a team needs to score) there is a Goalie.

Goalies are also called:

Goalie is just an abreviation of the above and even though some sports claim that a GOALIE is just for their chosen sport, this is nonsense!

Goalie is a Goalie 

This is just not the case because as i said above, any goalkeeper, goaltender, goalplayer, keeper etc that plays in most sports, ice hockey, soccer, handball, water polo etc can be refered to as a goalie.

However ice hockey, followed by soccer probably use this term more than any other sport.

However no matter what sport the Goalie is the most important player on the pitch as without this position it would be a free high scoring game.

So this is just a quick guide to explain the difference.
