Puck App is the easiest way to rent a goalie in Calgary. We developed the app to help teams quickly find and rent a goalie when they need one – on demand, and in real time. We know first hand that playing hockey without a goalie is no fun and can even cause your team to automatically forfeit the game, some leagues even charge a team $50 fee. Finding a last minute goalie can be stressful and we want to relieve that stress and give you peace of mind that you’ll have somebody in net for you. We want you focusing on crushing your game instead of filling a net.
We all know the feeling…. We get the dreaded text/email/facebook message from our main goalie saying something along the lines of:
“Sorry Guys, can’t make the game tonight I’m stuck at work”
“Can’t making it tonight boys, it’s girls night out and I have to watch the kids”
“It’s the finale of the Bachelor, I can’t miss it” (really, dude?)
“I’m tired of getting left out to dry each game, I’m playing out!”
“My groin is still pulled from the last game when I got undressed after the game”
“I’m at the Flames game”
When we get a message like any of the above, we send out a few other messages to the goalies we know to see if they’ll play. They either do not answer, can’t make it, or make up some lame excuse about what they have to do instead. When you’ve found yourself in this situation then it’s about time you download Puck App and get an awesome goalie ASAP, all with a few swipes.
Puck App provides goalies for all types of ice rentals. We connect goalies for league games, pick up events, work skates and even for some commercials (so yes, our goalies are technically famous now).
Why Use Puck App?
At Puck App, we take pride in making sure that the right goalie comes out to your game, which is why we have specific levels of goalies and games. Our app also has a feedback section so we know who are our best goalies for your game and can get smarter over time. We want to be clear that the best goalie doesn’t mean that he almost played pro and got you guys a shutout. The app matches the game with the best goalie for that level. We know that having an A level goalie at a family pick up games isn’t fun for anyone involved so Puck App makes everyone happy – goalie and player alike.
We pride ourselves in sending out goalies that will arrive early so you’re not freaking out 5 minutes before game time. Our goalies will be team players in the dressing room and will try their best to help your team win. Keep in mind everyone has a bad game so please be understanding and be respectful of our goalies – they want to do their best for you, after all! If you feel like your Puck App goalie wasn’t the right fit for the game please let us know and we’ll make it up to you.
Hockey in Calgary
We know that we have a shortage of rinks in Calgary, so some ice times can be late or in the surrounding towns of Calgary, it can be hard to find a goalie for those 11 pm Chestermere ice times. We have no problem finding a goalie to cover those poorly scheduled games or those early morning shinny skates.
We know that some leagues require that goalies fill out a form before playing so if that is the case then please send those forms to our goalies via text through the app.
In the winter time, you can see some our goalies playing in all of the leagues across the city. If we’re missing the rink near you please send a request for the closest rink and let the goalie know through the messaging system in the app. Please also send us an email through support and we’ll add that rink to the app permanently.
In the past, we always heard the joke that the Calgary flames should use Puck App to rent a goalie, but we hope that those jokes are soon behind us with Mike Smith and Eddie Lack stopping the pucks for the Flames. In case it doesn’t turn out that way, we’ll still be here. Go Flames Go.
