Associations can apply for a free set of CCM Goalie Equipment

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association Goalie Assist Program is an effort to support children who have dreams of becoming a hockey goaltender. The deadline to apply is August 28th.

Working in conjunction with local minor hockey associations across Ontario, this program will provide sets of new hockey goaltending equipment to loan to 5-7 year old players interested in trying the position. Each set of equipment will be retained by the local minor hockey associations at the conclusion of the hockey season to loan to players in following years.

“Providing players with the opportunity to sample and learn to play all positions is crucial for their overall athletic experience and their future enjoyment in the sport," said Ian Taylor, OMHA Executive Director. "The Goalie Assist Program provides the opportunity to try the position of goaltender – and to see if they enjoy it – without the financial requirement of purchasing equipment. We are happy to once again partner with CCM to provide this opportunity for our young players, to relieve the financial burden for their families and to develop more goalies in the process.”

Applications for the Goalie Assist Program are now closed. There are limited sets of equipment, thereby it is very important that your Association read and understand the following package.
