Through the NIL platform MarketPryce, 2021 National Champion and 2022 All-American Roque secured a partnership with Advantage Goalkeeping. With their expert help, she crafted her signature glove called the AGK Pro Roque, to perfectly suit female hands - complete with her own CR logo! 

“I couldn't have been in this situation without my teammates,” Roque said. “It’s surreal to make a dream come true with a signature goalie glove designed for a woman's hand, and I’m so honored and excited for what this could bring to the sport. I’m hoping this will inspire girls that they can accomplish anything they set their mind to.” 

Advantage Goalkeeping and the ACC Goalkeeper of the Year have begun pre-sale on the AGK Pro Roque that features size dimensions favoring the hands of female goalkeepers eliminating the bulkiness of typical gloves designed for male goalkeepers. The glove is made using German Contact latex grip, which is universally considered professional. Another feature of the glove is the grip on the palm of the hand extending down over the wrist to aid in catching and securing the ball. The material used to create the backhand is Breathaprene which is exceptionally lightweight, breathable, and flexible. 

“We could not be more thrilled to join forces with the incredible Cristina Roque on this groundbreaking NIL partnership,” said Mike Poledna, Founder of Advantage Goalkeeping, “She has crafted a uniquely tailored product to help her and other female goalkeepers succeed, and we are honored to support her vision. One of the best parts of working alongside Cristina is the shining example she sets as both an athlete and human being: always reliable, hardworking, and professional – yet also so kind-hearted and generous. Every step along our journey together has been such an inspiring experience.”
