3rd Annual Martha Kennedy Goalie Scholarship

The Goalie Guild and the Martha Kennedy Memorial Goalie Scholarship have joined forces in order to provide male and female goalies (ages 8-16) 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.

This is the 3rd year I've put this scholarship together to honor Martha, her love of goalies, and to give back to hockey.  


Martha Kennedy was my wife of 18 years, my soul mate and the Mother of our son Scott. She was an amazing woman and a proud goalie mom who passed away on January 21st, 2018 after a 6-year battle with colon cancer. She took great pride in watching our son Scott play goalie, watching him grow from a boy to a young man who pushed himself on the ice and gave back to the Arapahoe goalie community by helping the younger goalies.

During her illness the hockey community was always there for us helping with rides to / from practices, Scott's teams taping their sticks pink during October, dedicating games, and too many offers to help to name. 

The first year I was able to award $2,600 in cash and another $500 in goalie gear.  Last year I was able to award $5,200 in cash and  another $1,100 in goalie gear.   For you hockey families out there you know how expensive it is to play hockey, let alone having to cover the cost of goalie gear for your son or daughter. 

I will match, dollar for dollar, the first $2,000 raised through this GoFundMe.  All money raised, 100%, will go towards scholarships to goalies and a portion of monies raised will go to goalies participating in the Arapahoe Youth Hockey League in Colorado

* Applications are currently being accepted until Juily 31st and can submitted through The Goalie Guilds website, a 501(c)(3)

* Scholarships will be awarded in mid August 2020
