The Ontario Minor Hockey Association is proud to announce the relaunch of the Goalie Assist Program presented by CCM Hockey in an effort to support children who have dreams of becoming a hockey goaltender.

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 to continue the positive cycle of introducing new goalies to the position.

The OMHA believes this program helps break down some of the barriers that may exist for new goalies. Being a netminder is a very unique position in hockey and requires specific equipment that may not always be readily available. A player who wants to be a goalie should not be discouraged for any reason and this program helps alleviate some of those worries. The Goalie Assist Program could be the first time a player is able to become a netminder.

The PECMHA wants to extend their gratitude to CCM for providing such a valuable program and opportunity to our young goalies in training.
