Advocacy:

The FGRE feels the need in the goalie community to advocate for goalies, parents and coaches in order to recognize the commitment and sacrifice involved. The goalie position, along with its coaches and caretakers are typically overlooked in the Hockey world. The Foundation brings the goaltending community together to try and solve issues such as ; Why are there no Goalie coaches in the Hockey Hall of Fame?  Why do Goalie coaches not get invited to All-Star games? Why are Minor and Junior teams/clubs allowed to carry goalies on their roster that will never play? These are just a few issues that we believe, when solved, will improve the quality of both the game of hockey and the position. The FGRE is very passionate in bringing awareness to the goalie community’s contributions to hockey.
