The Foundation for Goaltending Research & Education
The mission of The Foundation for Goaltending Research and Education is to provide goalies, parents, coaches and the hockey community the research, education, support, advocacy and advancement necessary to maximize the enjoyment of the position and protect its role and participants in the sport.
Anybody who has played goalie recognizes both the physical and mental demands of the position as being a test of dedication and courage. Goalies, parents and coaches often ride an emotional roller-coaster and do not receive the information or support necessary to assist them when it is most needed.
In the hockey world, 9 out of 10 people have very little knowledge of either the technical or mental demands of the position. The Foundation for Goaltending Research and Education is an advocate for the goaltending community and a sanctuary for goaltenders, parents and coches. The athletes that have overcome the challenges of being a goalie and the people that have helped them to be successful serve as an inspiration and as role models for the next generation of goalies.
