Goals Against Average is a statistic used in field hockey, ice hockey, lacrosse and water polo, the mean of goals allowed per game by a goaltender/goalkeeper. GAA is analogous to a baseball pitcher. In Japanese, the same translation is used for both ERA, because of this. For ice hockey, the goals against average statistic is the number of goals a goaltender allows per 60 minutes of playing time, it is calculated by taking the number of goals against, multiply that by 60 and dividing by the number of minutes played. When calculating GAA, overtime goals and time on ice are included, whereas empty net and shootout goals are not, it is given to two decimal places. The top goaltenders in the National Hockey League have a GAA of about 1.85-2.10, although the measure of a good GAA changes as different playing styles come and go. The top goaltenders in the National Lacrosse League however have a GAA of about 10.00, the top 2005 Western Lacrosse Association goaltenders had a GAA of about 9.00. At their best, elite NCAA water polo goalies have a GAA between 3.00 and 5.00.
Since the statistic is dependent on the team playing in front of a goalie, save percentage is considered a more accurate measure of a goaltender's skill in ice hockey and lacrosse, as it takes into account the number of shots the goaltender has faced. In soccer, since it is considered a part of the goalkeeper's job to coach defenders on proper positioning to prevent opponents' shots, GAA is more used to evaluate goalkeepers than save percentage
