A 501-c3 nonprofit foundation dedicated to educating and supporting the global goaltending community. Made in the image and likeness of a medieval guild, the foundation's mission is focused on being a reliable resource for the community. It does this by offering scholarships, funding, and continuing education for the goaltending craft.
Lift The Mask is a mental health support program for the goaltending community. It's main mission is to eliminate the social and financial barriers associated with mental health and mental skills training for goalies.
Lift The Mask offers any goalie a chance to claim a $100 USD stipend for professional mental health care. This can be used to speak with a licensed therapist, a sports psychologist, or a mental skills coach anywhere in the world.
The inaugural GGR was held from May 28-30, 2018. Since then, the event has hosted over 250 coaches and sports performance experts from 25 hockey nations.
We are also open to creating new partnerships and supporting select fundraising events that are focused on grassroots, growth, accessibility, diversity, and more.
