Equipment

Hockey sticks

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 other 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.

Shin pads

These are essential. You will not be allowed to train or play without them.

Mouthguard

A properly fitted mouthguard (gum shield) is highly recommended. Please ask your child's coach for more information on where they can get gum shields fitted.
