Kris Perani Hockey Foundation Sponsorship

As a family that played hockey, the Perani family knows firsthand how expensive hockey is. No matter what age group or hockey level, it’s an expensive sport – from classes, league fees, equipment, travel expenses, ice fees and more. Ice and league fees alone can cost as much as $2500 a year.

Starting off with registration/application fees and deposits, those can range anywhere from $40 – $150, and that’s before you’re even on the ice. A single season can cost anywhere from $400 – $2000 per child, and that cost usually goes up as your child gets older. And then you’ve got all the hockey equipment they will need for on the ice. Families with kids on travel teams can pay as much as $6000 – $8000 each year.

KPHF was established to help those families who may not be able to cover all the hockey expenses (excluding equipment).

The Goalie Guild and the Martha Kennedy Memorial Goalie Scholarship

The Goalie Guild and the Martha Kennedy Memorial Goalie Scholarship have joined forces in order to provide male and female goalies (ages 10-16) in the USA impacted by the Coronavirus with financial assistance for their league and team fees. This program is in honor of the late Martha Kennedy, a special hockey mom and amazing woman who dedicated her life to her goalie son, Scott Kennedy.

In May of 2020, Dave Kennedy and The Goalie Guild established a partnership in order to grow and support the Martha Kennedy Memorial Goalie Scholarship, in honor of the late Martha Kennedy, a passionate goalie mom who passed away in January of 2018 due to Stage 4 colon cancer. Two months after her passing, Dave decided to honor Martha by setting up the memorial scholarship, which was originally awarded to 10-U goalies.
