“Just Like Insurance, the First Save Is The Biggest One”
The OMHA Insurance Broker Association of Ontario (IBAO) Goalie Assist Program is an effort to support children who have dreams of becoming a hockey goaltender, by providing a set of hockey goaltending equipment to loan to 5-7 year old players interested in trying the position.
In addition, IBAO will provide minor hockey associations with goaltending resources to aid coaches. Over forty sets of new equipment were distributed last season to young players across the province.
This Program is available to all Member Associations of the OMHA. Associations may apply for the kit and describe their current goaltending program in the application. Kits will be awarded based on need. A kit cannot be awarded to an Association who received a kit in the previous two seasons.
In addition to the goaltending equipment, the OMHA will include a Goaltending Resource package in each kit.
Forty sets are available with a limit of one set per Association. Kit’s are distributed through the local Insurance Broker’s Office.
KIT SIZES & DETAILS
Each kit is equipped with a set of Youth Pads, Catcher/Blocker, stick, chest protector and bag. Catching hands and sticks will be available with common left/right combinations. Successful Applicants may not receive the left/right combination they requested. Kits are targeted for the Tyke age level.
