Manning said many leagues face goaltender shortages, largely because of the physical and mental challenges that come with the role.

Mark Manning turned the idea into an app that connects needy hockey teams with available goal tenders, and he joins us now to tell us more about this app and how it works.

What’s the biggest problem for rec hockey players? Getting goalies at the games. Mark Manning the founder of GoalieUp talks about the app launched across Canada.
Why the need for goalies? Apparently, it takes a special kind of person to put themselves in harm's way of rubber pucks flying at great speeds toward their heads. It also requires someone who has the right equipment for the job — and who's mobile, flexible and probably a little crazy too.
Every once in a while you need a goalie, and you try and find one; there is an app for that, it was invented in Canada, it’s called GoalieUp, and the creator of GoalieUp is Mark Manning who joins us now…
