I have no goal shooter only goal keepers. Please help...

My team of 8 in junior div" is a strong defence team. I have 5 players who have only played GD and GK. I have 3 WA who are the three shortest on the team and I am using one as centre. I have one WA who has bad feet so she is in GS. She is great at getting the ball but due to height cannot get a goal or get the rebound. My other WA struggles with shooting even without pressure but can get the ball well. My GD' are alternating in WD and doing well. My only 3 players who have height are GK players. 2 are excellent, one is working on watching the ball. Should I move one of my tallest players to Ga/GS? And train them there in that role. How do I change mindset from GK to GS? Any advice Would be appreciated.

I would look at training one of your 5 defenders as a shooter. Pick someone who moves well, is quite agile & is prepared to put the practice in. Shooting is a learned skill u can b taught & it just requires a lot of practice.

Thank you for your answer. I have asked for volunteers and got one who fits your description, so now I just need to get the other. 

I would definitely use my defence players are a GS. Maybe one of your WA players as a feeding shooting and a taller defence as a holding GS. Teach them to screen out the defence players keeping them away from reaching the rebounds. I always tell my players to wear their opponet on their back meaning their player should always be behind them😉 goodluck
