Hertford Academy teams play matches in our Red Polo Shirts. Our youth playing kit, along with sticks and other hockey accessories, is available online from our kit partner, The Pro Shop in Hitchin. All kit can be viewed and purchased online. More information can be found on the Club Shop section of this website or visit: http://proshopsport.com/hertford-hc-colts-157-c.asp
One of the biggest problems we have is young players with a stick which is too big for them. It is one of those things that you just can’t buy a size too big and wait to grow into. Please buy your stick at the club shop or another reputable sports shop which will make sure you have the right size. Don’t let mum and dad buy one without taking you to be measured up.
These are essential. You will not be allowed to train or play without them.
A properly fitted mouth guard (gum shield) is highly recommended. Please ask your child's coach for more information on where they can get gum shields fitted. You will not be allowed to train or play without one.
