All players are required to wear a helmet (with a full cage), gloves, and have a hockey stick. Please write your player's name on their stick. Full equipment is encouraged, but not required.

Facemask – Must be of a design and construction approved by the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC).

Stick – Length should generally extend from the ice to the players chin (with skates on). Quality and price differ greatly, so the choice is yours.
Shin Pads – Check for proper lengths so they protect the knee and skin completely.
Supporter and Cup – Essential protective equipment.
Gloves – Check for proper fit with good finger and hand mobility.
