What is needed to play hockey?
Here is a list of what equipment is required by OMHA and Hockey Canada in order for your child to be insured:
1) Helmet - proper fitting - please do not buy with room to grow. Their heads are very important to protect.
2) Neck guard
3) Elbow Pads
4) Shoulder Pads
5) Jock for boys or a Jill for girls
7) Shin Pads
8) Skates - again proper fitting is a must - too big do not allow for proper learning
11) MOUTH GUARD **** very important as the child will not be allowed on the ice without one. Please get the child used to the mouth guard early at home and please trim it to fit the childs mouth. A dentist made mouth guard is ideal but some are not made for your younger children.
In our Initiation Program socks and jerseys are provided. All other levels practice jerseys and socks are required but game jerseys and socks (at a cost) will be provided.
