Goalie Equipment

Goalie equipment is provided by Port Colborne Minor Hockey to provide all players the opportunity to play the goaltender position during the year. This program is the grass roots development for minor hockey in Port Colborne. PCMHA believes that every child should be encouraged to play every position during their early years.


One practice and one game per week and LOTS OF FUN....
