Stopping a GA who dominates mid-court and the circle?

We have an amazing team in our grade who is incredibly fast through the court. The GA seems to dominate both mid court and the goal circle. How or what tactics can I teach my defenders (10 year olds) to stop or slow her down?

at age 10 most girls are still struggling to remember where they are allowed and not stepping when they somehow manage to get the ball.  at that age all you can do is try and teach them to stay in front of her and defend from the front, but if you dont have an equally skilled player its is going to be hard to slow her down.  just work on your own game and getting your team as best as they can be.  but work on footwork, and getting them to move around the circle by staying tight on their players and never giving up.  and maybe this one good team will be moved into a higher grade after grading.  good luck.
