What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Ice hockey goaltending continues to be one of the most expensive and under-educated positions in sports. From the pro level all the way down to grassroots youth programs, a lack of adequate resources has stymied the growth of the position across the United States. For many families, not only is the financial burden becoming heavier as equipment costs, ice fees, and travel expenses continue to rise, but a lack of training and education is leaving too many parents in the dark. Unable to properly support their child's well being, we see a significant issue with the amount of burnout, hip and lower body injuries, and mental health concerns.

The Goalie Guild and the Martha Kennedy Memorial Goalie Scholarship have joined forces in order to provide male and female goalies (ages 8-16) in the USA impacted by economic and financial strife with assistance for their league and team fees. This program is in honor of the late Martha Kennedy, a special hockey mom and amazing woman who dedicated her life to her goalie son, Scott Kennedy.

Population(s) Served

The Goalie Guild believes in the future of digital sports collections, communities, and the growth of NFT's as a vehicle for personal and professional growth. As the decentralized web continues to change the way students and athletes connect with each other, we feel it is important to support goalies, students, and young adults that are passionate about these areas of digital citizenship.

That is why we are committed to offering annual mentorship and scholarship opportunities for individuals (ages 16+) that want to learn about digital collectibles, NFT's, blockchain technology, and the future of fan engagement. From NBA Top Shot to NHL collectibles, we will continue to support these areas in order to increase the diversity and accessibility of goalies and young athletes to relevant industry in hockey and beyond.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Goalie Guild aims to educate, inspire, and support anyone in the goalie community. We do this by providing financial support and a wide variety of free educational resources for the goalie community. By providing these programs and services, we can have a direct and positive impact on goalies, coaches, parents, and entire organizations. Our foundation is committed to helping anyone involved in goaltending to overcome any of the financial and social obstacles that hinder the growth of the position.

Since its original founding date of January 2009, The Goalie Guild has been committed to offering free literature, social media content, resources, and mentoring services for the goalie community. Our strategies lean on Event Management, self-publishing, social media, and a strong network of pro goalie coaches and directors in order to educate our community as effectively as possible.

We utilize scholarships, grants, social media, and creative content design to educate, inspire, and support the goalie community.

Since 2015, we have served the goalie community with over 40 coaching and training scholarships, which has totaled over $25,000.

The Goalie Guild has also published thousands of free articles, stories, and goalie development content through social media and various other platforms.

The Goalie Guild has also worked with high-level goalie organizations, including USA Hockey, NHL.com, Axis Goaltending, NetWork Goaltending, Swedish Hockey Institute, and many others.

GearGivers, a program committed to offering free used equipment to goalies and hockey families in need, was launched in 2018.

The Global Goaltending Retreat was created in 2018 and takes place annually in Breckenridge, CO.

In 2019, The Goalie Guild also launched Lift The Mask, a program dedicated to supporting mental health and mental performance in the goalie community.
