I play soccer for my high school team, and it's my first time playing goalkeeper?

Is it mandatory for Goalies to have goalie pants or sliding pants, or can you just wear the shorts that are provided with your team?

    All that is required by the Laws of the Game (even High School rules) is that the keeper wear a shirt which is a different color than both teams. Everything else is optional.

    Goalies can wear  shorts,  or pants that give the protection needed, when diving full length. Don't think you will be ready to dive too much, if it's your first time. You need coaching, if you are going to do it regularly.

    Wear whatever pants you want, just pull them up.

      No.  The referee can determine certain pants, like those with pockets, to be unsafe.  You might get away with it one game but not the next.
