It feels like forever since I’ve posted anything on here, but after successfully publishing Between Two Worlds in late-March, I took some time to plan out my next professional endeavor. If you’ve had a chance to read the book, you already know that I felt I was called to transform my company (The Hockey Guild, LLC) into a non-profit 501-c3 organization (The Goalie Guild, INC).
The game of hockey has blessed me with so many unforgettable training, mentoring, and learning opportunities over the years, so I wanted to create similar opportunities for underprivileged and under-educated goalies and goalie coaches.
Thankfully, the IRS approved my application for the new non-profit, granting me a 501-c3 status, so I’ve been hard at work creating a new business model that will allow me to benefit and support the goalie community in a charitable manner. All of my pro goalie consulting services are now available under this new model, and I’ve created six annual scholarships that will be available beginning sometime in August when the all-new website and non-profit model is officially launched.
NetWork Goaltending’s summer training program in Finland
As many of you know, I just returned from another amazing learning experience via NetWork Goaltending‘s first-annual Summer Training Program in Vierumaki, Finland. As the company’s Director of Operations, I worked closely with the four founders (Mike Valley, Thomas Magnusson, Hannu Nykvist, and David Alexander) to create a coaching scholarship in the amount of $250, which will provide a coach with free admission to the upcoming Goalie Coaching Symposium. The selected coach will be announced on Tuesday, July 28.
So here it is, the first-ever scholarship offered by my new non-profit company! Just click the logo below or right here to download the application.

All you have to do is fill out the application and submit it back to The Goalie Guild. Details on the Goalie Coaching Symposium are available here.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are applying for this scholarship, you must agree to attend the symposium, which is held August 28-30, 2015 in Madison, WI. You will be responsible for your own travel plans, but The Goalie Guild has your admission fee of $250 covered. Please make sure you are available to attend in person before applying, thanks!
