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. Deadline to apply is July 15, 2021.
