PadsTracker is proud to announce that they have joined forces with the GoalieCrease Network to house the new PadsTracker forums, while also further promoting the two unique brands and communities.
This new partnership came together effortlessly and seamlessly over the past two weeks, and thanks to some strong friendships becoming even stronger, it has created an exciting endeavor on both sides.
PadsTracker, which is co-owned by Justin Goldman and Mathew Abraham, is an extension of The Goalie Guild (founded by Goldman in 2009) that broke off into its own site just last month. The GoalieCrease Network, which was originally founded by Jason Craig, was recently sold to Tomy Ames.
Ames and Abraham are close friends that live in the St. Louis area, and once Ames took over GoalieCrease, he contacted PadsTracker to form this new partnership.
“I was committed to building a new message board exclusively on our PadsTracker website, but when I met Tomy and got to know him, I was impressed with his passion for his new role with GoalieCrease,” Goldman said. “Knowing his commitment level to building the GoalieCrease community was so strong, I was even more committed to partnering with him and his website. Having GoalieCrease house our forums not only makes sense, but it’s a win-win for both sides.”
The GoalieCrease Network has a community of over 3,000 members, and as such, everyone will have a chance to utilize and share the different PadsTracker tools. Both sides will work together to not only host unique contests in the future, but to give readers and members opportunities to celebrate the goalie gear culture we all love to embrace.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to bring together a vibrant community with the incredible following that PadsTracker has,” Ames said. “Every goalie loves to theorize his or her next set of pads, and PadsTracker is a wonderful tool that lets goalies see their dreams in action. With that passion combined with our community’s knowledge of upcoming goalies, and a thirst to see what all of the NHL’ers are wearing, this is a wonderful relationship that was just waiting to happen. I’m glad we could partner to give goalies around the world these opportunities.”
Due to the growth of the PadsTracker tools and templates, members will also have the first chance to become official writers for the website. This is a great opportunity for budding journalists and dedicated “gear-heads” to join an exclusive staff of professional hockey writers and graphic artists.
“The Goalie Guild and PadsTracker brands are growing at an exponential rate, and we’ve reached a point where we want to open doors for others to join in the fun,” Abraham said. “Now that PadsTracker has partnered with the GoalieCrease Network, we want to give their members an opportunity to join our army of pad-tracking enthusiasts. Justin is busy managing The Goalie Guild and I’m busy designing the templates, so it’s a great opportunity for anyone that wants to kick-start a career in the goalie industry.”
