No Goalie? No problem! Rent a Goalie with Puck App
Puck App is a Toronto based start-up that is setting out to solve a truly unique Canadian problem.
The problem is that there aren’t enough hockey goalies to meet the demand of hockey games being played.
Anyone who has played hockey before knows that playing hockey without a goalie isn’t any fun and in most organized leagues, the team automatically forfeits the game without a goalie.
The Solution? Puck is an app that allows teams to quickly rent a goalie for their game by matching them with the best available goalie.
When a team needs a goalie, they send a request indicating what rink, time and skill level they need. The team then pays though the app and Puck notifies the best goalies available of the game. The goalies can choose whether or not to accept the game.
After the game, the goalies are automatically paid for their service and the team can rate and tip their goalie based on performance.
Puck just launched on the app store at the beginning of September and will initially operate in Toronto but will quickly expand to other Canadian cities like Ottawa and Montreal.
