So, you’re a goalie parent. Welcome to the club! We believe that there are two turning points when you have children.
First, when they’re born.
Second, when they decide to become a goalie.
Everything you need to know about being a great goalie parent
If there is a single piece of advice we can give you about being a goalie parent, it’s to learn from those who have been through the process below.
Must join Facebook Groups for Parents of Goalies
One of the best places to learn is from the experiences of others. While we do have a resources portal for all the parents out there (private product reviews / etc), Facebook groups are still one of the best places to gain experience. You’re not alone in this journey!
