THE STORY BEHIND THE SCHOLARSHIP

In August of 2014, The Goalie Guild founder Justin Goldman was asked to handle video coordination duties for the first-annual NHL Goalie Camp run by Elite Goalies founder and Dallas Stars goalie coach Mike Valley. The camp not only included eight NHL goalies, but an all-world coaching staff that included Thomas Magnusson, Hannu Nykvist, and David Alexander. Together, the five gentlemen created the mission and idea behind NetWork Goaltending.

As Goldman wrote in “Between Two Worlds”, the open and egoless environment created in Madison was life-altering and powerful. It was during that camp that NetWork Goaltending was born, giving the five men a chance to share that special training and coaching environment with goalies across the globe.

As the Director of Operations for NetWork Goaltending, Goldman decided to cover the entry fee for a goalie coach that wanted to attend the first-annual Goalie Coaching Symposium. Dustin Manko (Kansas City, MO) was the recipient of the scholarship, which finalized the first of its kind for The Goalie Guild’s new non-profit organization.
