Local team receives goalie kit

DRAYTON - The local minor hockey association here has received an early Christmas gift.

Last week, Josslin Insurance Brokers, member of the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO), delivered a goalie kit to the Drayton Minor Hockey League, as part of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) and IBAO Goaltender Assist program.

IBAO has sponsored the purchase of 40 goalie kits, which include a bag, chest protector, pads, blocker, catcher’s glove, stick and goaltender resources for the chosen OMHA local hockey association.

Scott Wagler of Josslin Insurance Brokers in Elmira was able to meet with coach Brandon Murray  and Drayton Minor Hockey Association  president Jerry Roubos to deliver the goalie equipment to the players of the Drayton Defenders tyke team during their practice at the PMD Arena.

The program is an effort to support children who have dreams of becoming a hockey goaltender by providing a set of goaltending equipment to 5- to 7-year-old players interested in trying the position.

In addition, IBAO will provide minor hockey associations with goalie resources to aid coaches. Over 40 sets of new equipment will be given to young players across the province.

“IBAO and Josslin Insurance Brokers are thrilled to support OMHA, an organization focused on building and growing the skills of youths in our communities,” said IBAO chief executive Randy Carroll.

“Brokers are committed to the people in their communities. This type of sponsorship directly relates to that commitment by encouraging youths to be active.”

The program was launched in September and comes with an appropriate tagline to showcase the partnership between OMHA and IBAO: “Just like insurance, the first save is the biggest one. For information about IBAO, visit www.ibao.org or www.ibao.org/blog.
