We are playing summer comp (13 yr old girls). We have one shooter with a broken finger, and usually one other is injured or sick each week leaving us weekly with 5 players only. Which 2 positions do I not fill? Another coach told me WA and WD but I feel it just gives us both a weak attacking and a week defending team. I'm now thinking of putting the girls in attack only (GS GA WA C) with one girl in defence- GD ( and our centre covering the WD position from the other teams centre pass) This way we increase our chances of scoring from our own centre pass and still have someone defending their GA and WA from their centre pass in the hope of a intercept. Am I crazy???

Drop the wing players. The GD and GA can cover their spaces but if you took a circle player out you would be creating 2 Vs 1 scenarios at either end for your opponent. Obviously you need a C for the centre passes so losing the wings allows you to retain opptions at a centre pass without leaving one of your girls isolated and double-marked in either goal circle.
