Hockey Equipment Guide: Getting Ready!

Cheryl has sent on a fitting and gear guide from Center Ice Skate & Sport: Hockey Equipment Guide. It's a super overview. You can print it and take it with you when shopping.

All participating skaters will be required to wear a helmet (visor/face guard strongly encouraged), skates, elbow pads, gloves and (ideally) a cup. They'll need a stick as well. If a skater will tolerate additional gear then breezers, shin pads and shoulder pads should be used. If you have questions, or if your skater will not tolerate the protective gear, please contact your coach to discuss adaptive options

We do have a very limited supply of used equipment, so if you are having trouble getting equipment, we will certainly try to find something that will work for you. Please contact Rick Carlson @ 763-546-1590 if you have equipment needs or have any gently used equipment you may want to donate.

We will provide socks and a jersey for each player! We will need to know what name you would like on the jersey and what size you will need. In addition, it may be necessary for the skater to have their own practice jersey and socks for the first few practices until the jerseys are printed and delivered.
