Goalie Equipment from Birkett-Hassard Insurance Brokers
Submitted By charlene on Thursday, October 18, 2012
Birkett-Hassard Insurance Brokers, a member of the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) was selected as a goalie kit ‘pick up’ location in Stouffville, as part of the ‘Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) and IBAO Goaltender Assist Program’. IBAO has sponsored the purchase of 40 goalie kits which includes a bag, chest protector, pads, blocker, catcher’s glove, stick and goaltender resources for the chosen OMHA local hockey association.    Louie Volpe from the Whitchurch-Stouffville Minor Hockey Association received the donated kit today from Michelle McBeth, of Birkett-Hassard Insurance Brokers in Stouffville.  

 

The OMHA and IBAO Goaltender Assist Program is an effort to support children who have dreams of becoming a hockey goaltender, by providing a set of hockey goaltending equipment to 5-7 year old players interested in trying the position. In addition, IBAO will provide minor hockey associations with goaltending resources to aid coaches. Over forty sets of new equipment will be given to young players across the province.

 

“IBAO and Birkett-Hassard Insurance Brokers are thrilled to support OMHA, an organization focused on building and growing the skills of youth in our communities,” stated IBAO CEO, Randy Carroll. “Brokers are committed to the people in their communities. This type of sponsorship directly relates to that commitment by encouraging youth to be active.”

 

The program is now in its second year, and comes with an appropriate tagline to showcase the partnership between OMHA and IBAO, ‘Just Like Insurance, the First Save is the Biggest One’.
