Your Best Insurance is a Good Goaltender

Recently, Josslin Insurance Brokers had an opportunity to do something great for some little hockey players in the communities we serve by delivering sets of goalie equipment to three minor hockey leagues in Waterloo Region.

Being parents of children who play hockey, many members of the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) realized that there are so few opportunities for kids aged 5-7 to play goalie on their hockey teams because the hockey equipment is so expensive. In an effort to help, the IBAO purchased 40 goalie kits – that’s a bag, chest protector, pads, blocker, catcher’s glove, stick and goaltender resources- and gave them to 40 community leagues in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) across Ontario.

Josslin Insurance Brokers was chosen as a lucky representative to deliver a few of these kits to the excited teams. You may have seen the video above on Rogers during Christmas Break and current hometown hockey broadcasts on Rogers TV. It features Josslin’s very own Scott Wagler explaining how having a set of equipment in reserve can give the kids an opportunity to play goalie who wouldn’t normally have that option.
