I have been experimenting with diferent lighting setups for green screens. But I have a problem. Once in a while I get some green spilling onto the face of the sublect. How do I elimate that?

Background info:
I am shooting a larg hockey league soon and I want to keep the lighting simple. I have 2 1000ws strobe with 40x40 softbox and 4 360w/s with umbrellas. I am runing 2 individual setup and 1 team setup.

Thanks for you help...

try your subject more away from the green background. The more space between the subject and the background the less spill on the face etc
